Chicken Coconut Curry


A great way to use coconut milk is in curries. If you have seen my article on the benefits of coconut milk you will know that using coconut milk in your diet will add a good daily dose of coconut oil. This Chicken Coconut Curry is the perfect curry for all occasions. It’s creamy and spicy and the pumpkin gives it a nice sweetness.

This recipe has 2 components to it – the curry paste and the curry.
