  • 1/4 cup Whole Unsalted Cashews
  • 1 pound skinless and boneless Chicken Breasts (cut into 1inch pieces)
  • Salt to Taste
  • 1/4 cup Oil
  • 1/4 tsp Black Mustard Seeds
  • 1/4 tsp Cumin Seeds
  • 1/4 tsp Coriander (ground)
  • 1 tbsp Curry Powder
  • 1 medium Onion (thinly sliced)
  • 1 tsp Ginger (finely grated)
  • 1 Garlic (minced)
  • 1 (14 ounce) can Coconut Milk (unsweetened)
  • 1/4 cup Frozen Peas
  • 2 tbsp Cilantro (chopped)
How to make Coconut Curry Chicken:
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Spread the cashews in a pie plate and bake for 5 minutes, or until fragrant and lightly toasted. Transfer to a plate to cool.
  • Lightly season the chicken with salt. In a large, deep skillet, heat 3 tablespoons of the oil until smoking.
  • Add the chicken and cook over moderately high heat until golden brown, about 1 1/2 minutes per side.
  • Transfer the chicken to a plate and reduce the heat to moderate.
  • Add the remaining 1 tablespoon of oil to the skillet and heat until smoking.
  • Add the mustard seeds and cook for about 1 minute, or until they stop popping.
  • Add the cumin seeds, coriander and curry powder, and cook, stirring occasionally, until fragrant, about 1 minute.
  • Add the onion, ginger and garlic, and cook until the onion softens, about 10 minutes; [if the mixture seems dry, add up to 1/4 cup of water to prevent sticking].
  • Stir in the coconut milk and bring to a boil [Reduce the heat to low].
  • Return the chicken to the skillet and simmer until cooked through, about 5 minutes. Stir in the peas and cook for 1 minute.
  • Transfer the coconut chicken curry to a bowl, sprinkle with the cilantro and cashews and serve.
Serve it hot.
