A five ingredient recipe you'll make over and over again for it's ease of preparation on big flavor. A recipe that currently lives on my family's Greatest Hits list!

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 lbs. boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into ½” pieces
  • 2 cups sweet potato, peeled and diced (about 2 cups)
  • 3 tablespoons green curry paste (such as Thai Kitchen)
  • 3 (14 oz. cans) coconut milk
  • 3 cups broccoli florets or other vegetables (bell peppers, cauliflower, zucchini, etc.)

Optional Extras

  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1/2 lime, zest and juice
  • cooked basmati or jasmine rice, for serving

Instructions

  • In a large skillet or pot over medium-high heat add 1 tablespoon oil. Add 1 lb. diced chicken breast, season with a pinch of salt and pepper. Sauté for 10-12 minutes, until golden brown. Transfer to a plate and set aside.
  • In the same skillet or pot, add 1-2 diced sweet potatoes, 3 tablespoons curry paste, and 3 cans coconut milk.  Simmer for 5-10 minutes until potatoes are fork-tender. Add 3 cups broccoli and return cooked chicken to the skillet or pot. Simmer for 3 minutes until broccoli is bright green.
  • If desired, finish with 2 tablespoons chopped cilantro and the zest and juice from ½ lime.

Serving Suggestion

  • Serve with steamy white rice and a side of naan bread.

SWAP SUGGESTIONS

  • Protein: Swap chicken breasts with chicken thighs, diced pork tenderloin, or shrimp. (shrimp will cook in 2-4 minutes depending on size. Return to pot after broccoli is tender.)
  • Vegetarian: Swap chicken breast for 12 oz. firm tofu pressed to remove as much water as possible. Pan-fry season with salt and pepper until crispy.

WEEKEND PREP/MAKE AHEAD

  • Cut veggies (sweet potatoes and broccoli), and store in the refrigerator in an airtight container.
