    This Chicken curry recipe is an easy, stovetop version of the classic Indian dish, but with Thai characteristics. For this rich and hearty meal, I use coconut milk, basil, cilantro, jalapeños, corn and lime juice, for a sweet sauce with just a little bit of heat.

    Curried chicken seems to be a recipe that many are intimidated to make at home. The honest truth is that Coconut Curry Chicken can be challenging if you make your curry from scratch (highly recommended at least once in your life).

    However, curry sauce can also come together quickly by using pre-made curry and the proper cookware. For this curry sauce recipe, the prep work takes more time than the actual cooking, but believe me, it is worth it for this aromatic masterpiece.

    Whether you are preparing Coconut Curry Chicken or a frittata, proper cookware is essential for any home chef. Materials make all the difference in your ability to cook evenly and effectively. You also want to make sure your cookware does not rust or pit and is budget friendly.

    The two ideal materials for cookware are stainless steel and copper. Stainless steel will outlive your grandchildren and is a workhorse in the kitchen, but does not distribute heat evenly or rapidly. Copper is the creme de la creme of cookware, conducting heat evenly and fast, but is expensive and fairly heavy.

    Revere® has come up with the best of both worlds: a stainless steel body with copper base at an attractive price point. The ideal cookware!

    Coconut Curry Chicken was the maiden dish in my new Revere® Copper Confidence Core™ cookware and I couldn’t be more pleased with both! I was able to easily sear chicken breasts, deglaze and simmer an aromatic curry sauce using only one pan.

    The handle is cool touch, so I didn’t need to worry about burning myself when I forgot the dish towel (I’m embarrassed at how many times I have done this). Clean up was a cinch, seeing that Revere® is dishwasher safe and chicken curry was a one dish meal! Are you drooling yet?

    Coconut Curry Chicken can be served with Whole Wheat Flatbread or Cilantro Lime Rice and can easily be made ahead to freeze. There is one thing I can promise you, Revere® Copper Confidence Core™ cookware and this mouth watering chicken curry recipe will both be new favorites in your kitchen.

    Instructions

    4. Add lime juice and scrape up any browned bits from the bottom of the pan. Allow mix to soften, coming to a sofrito consistency, approximately 3 minutes.
    5. Add ginger, yellow curry powder and cornstarch. The mixture will be dry and pasty, allow to brown for 1 minute or until the curry becomes fragrant.
