Recipe Ingredients for Coconut Curry Chicken

16 oz skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
2 green onions, chopped
1 tablespoon curry paste
1/3 cup chicken broth
1/2 cup coconut milk
2 teaspoons chopped fresh cilantro

Recipe Directions for Coconut Curry Chicken

  1. Place the chicken breasts between two sheets of heavy plastic (resealable freezer bags work well) on a solid, level surface. Firmly pound the chicken with the smooth side of a meat mallet to a thickness of about 1/2 inch. Sprinkle the chicken on both sides with salt and pepper.

  2. Heat the vegetable oil in a skillet over high heat, and pan-fry the chicken breasts until the meat is no longer pink, about 4 minutes per side. Transfer the chicken breasts to a plate.

  3. Reduce the heat to medium; stir the green onions and curry paste into the skillet, and cook for 1 minute, stirring frequently. Pour the broth into the skillet, and scrape up and dissolve any brown flavor bits in the skillet with a spoon. Bring the mixture to a full boil, and cook until the mixture has thickened into a glaze, about 10 minutes; pour in the coconut milk, bring back to a boil, and cook until thickened, about 10 more minutes. Return the chicken breasts to the pan, spoon sauce over the chicken, and simmer until heated through, about 2 minutes. Sprinkle with cilantro to serve.
