3-4 chicken breasts (or other cuts, if preferred)
1 Tbsp canola oil
1/4 cup chopped onion
1 clove garlic
1/4 chopped red bell pepper
dash chicken/vegetable broth
1/2 tsp cumin
1 Tbsp tomato paste
1 13.5 oz can coconut milk
dash salt and pepper


Heat the oil in a medium sauce pan, over medium heat. Add chicken and cook for 3 minutes or until golden brown. Turn over and cook for an additional 3 minutes, or until the second side is browned.

Remove chicken from sauce pan and set aside. Add onions, garlic and red pepper to pan. Cook, stirring occasionally for 6 minutes. Add the tomato paste and cumin and cook, stirring constantly for 2 minutes.

Return the chicken to the saucepan and stir in the coconut milk and chicken or vegetable broth. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat to medium low. Cover and let simmer for about 20 minutes or until the chicken is tender. Add salt and pepper, to taste.



Coconut: Although classified by the FDA as a tree nut, coconut is not a common allergen and is not related to tree nuts. If you have a tree nut allergy, consult your physician to find out if you need to avoid coconut.
