Basil Chicken in Coconut Curry Sauce

Dont let the ingredients intimidate you. This is really an easy easy recipe. I was kind of nervous about it since it is not something i would normally make, but it was so delicious and whips right up in 15 minutes. Keep in mind you will need the chicken to marinate for a couple hours.

2-3 Chicken Breasts
2 tsps curry powder
1/2 tsp salt and pepper (each)
1/4 tsp chili powder
1 red onion
2 jalapenos finely chopped and seeded
6 cloves garlic
1 Tbs dried Basil
1 Tbs olive oil
1 (14oz) can coconut milk
1 Tbs Cornstarch
1/2 Tsp powdered ginger
3-4 cups cooked minute rice

Cut chicken into 1-inch pieces. In a bowl mix curry, salt and pepper, and chili powder. Toss with chicken, cover and chill for 2 hours.
In a large skillet stir onion, basil, garlic, and jalapenos, in hot oil. Cook over medium heat 3-4 minutes until onions are translucent. Add chicken mixture and cook until no longer pink.
In a seperate bowl add coconut milk and cornstarch. Whisk until well combined and slowly add to chicken, whisking constantly. Cook until slightly thickened and bubbly. Stir in ginger. Serve over rice!!!!

  1. Hey, I was wondering if you could put your sugar cookie recipe up. I took it to my dad's house in California so we could make Christmas cookies and I lost it in the travel.
