  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 large chicken breast cut into bite sized pieces
  • 1 small zucchini julienned
  • 1 1/2 cups carrots sliced
  • 1/2 large onion diced
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons all purpose flour
  • 1 cup chicken stock
  • salt & pepper to taste
  • 1 can unsweetened coconut milk
  • 2 tablespoons all natural peanut butter
  • 4 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 teaspoons curry powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon turmeric
  • 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream
  • 3/4 cup frozen peas
  • peanuts for garnish, optional
  • toasted coconut for garnish, optional
  • brown rice for serving


  • In a large pot or deep skillet, heat olive oil over medium heat. Add in chicken and cook 2 minutes or until mostly cooked thoroughly. 
  • Add in zucchini, carrot, and onion and sauté five minutes. Sprinkle in flour and cook another minute.
  • Add in chicken stock, salt, and pepper. Bring to boil and reduce to simmer. Liquid won't thicken very much at all--this is normal. 
  • Stir in coconut milk, peanut butter, sugar, and spices. Simmer 5 minutes. Before serving, stir in heavy cream and peas. Cook another minute to warm peas through and serve over brown rice. Top with peanuts and toasted coconut.
