Recipe Ingredients for Coconut Basil Chiken Curry

2 teaspoons curry powder
1/2 teaspoon cracked black pepper
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon chili powder
16 oz chicken breasts, boneless, skinless
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 cup red onion (half of a large)
2 fresh jalapeno peppers, seeded and finely chopped
5 cloves garlic, minced
14 ounce lite coconut milk
1 tablespoon cornstarch
3 tablespoons snipped fresh basil
1 teaspoon grated fresh ginger

Recipe Directions for Coconut Basil Chiken Curry

  1. In a medium bowl combine curry powder, black pepper, 1/4 teaspoon of the salt, and the chili powder. Cut chicken into 1-inch pieces. Add to spice mixture in bowl; toss to coat. Cover and chill for 1 to 2 hours to allow spices to penetrate meat.

  2. Pour oil into a wok or large nonstick skillet; heat over medium-high heat. Add onion, jalapeno peppers, and garlic to wok; cook and stir about 8 minutes or until crisp-tender. Remove onion mixture from wok. Add half of the chicken to wok. Cook and stir for 4 to 6 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink. Remove from wok. Repeat with remaining chicken.

  3. Stir together coconut milk, cornstarch, and remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt until smooth. Carefully add to wok. Cook and stir until slightly thickened and bubbly. Return chicken and the onion mixture to wok. Stir in basil and ginger. Cook and stir about 2 minutes or until heated through. Serve over hot rice. Makes 4 servings.
