Recipe: Coconut Chicken Curry

I love spice, I love coconut, and I love meals that don't take long to put together. So for me this is a meal from heaven haha. I really don't like spending too long cooking, and most of the time I make a lot of food that can be packed up and eaten at a later date. I know I usually post a lot of vegetarian/vegan recipes, but I'm not either of those, and sometimes I do in fact eat meat, so this recipe does contain that. If you can handle spice, give this one a go!

Makes: 4 servings


  • 1.5 cups brown rice
  • 500g chicken breast
  • 2 cups frozen vegetables (I just used green veg)
  • 3 tbsp desiccated coconut
  • 1 tbsp curry powder
  • 1/2 tsp olive oil
  • 1.5 tsp chilli powder
  • 200mL coconut cream


  1. First take your brown rice and place it in a saucepan with 3 cups of water, place this on a high heat on a stove element until it boils, then turn it down to a low temperature and allow it to simmer, stir occasionally (it should take 30-40 mins to cook depending on your stove)
  2. While the rice is cooking cut up your chicken and place it in a frying pan on medium heat with 1/2 tsp of olive oil
  3. Add in the curry powder and chilli powder, allow the chicken to cook most of the way through
  4. When the chicken is nearly cooked all the way through add in the desiccated coconut, coconut cream and frozen vegetables, cook for a further 10-15 mins on a low heat (place a lid over your pan if you have one for it).
  5. Serve, or store, whatever you need to do!
