1 tablespoon vegetable oil

  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 pound boneless, skinless chicken thighs or breasts, cut into bite-sized pieces (can be substituted with other protein like tofu or lentils)
  • 1 tablespoon curry powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon turmeric powder
  • 4 cups low-sodium chicken broth
  • 1 (13.5 oz) can diced tomatoes, undrained
  • 1 (14.5 oz) can coconut milk (full-fat or light)
  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce (optional)
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • Cooked rice, for serving

  • Instructions:

    1. Heat the vegetable oil in a large pot or Dutch oven over medium heat. Add the chopped onion and cook until softened and translucent, about 5 minutes. Stir in the minced garlic and cook for another minute, until fragrant.

    2. Add the chicken pieces to the pot and cook until browned on all sides, about 5-7 minutes. Season with curry powder, ground ginger, and turmeric powder. Cook for another minute, stirring constantly, to toast the spices.

Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer for 15-20 minutes, or until the chicken is cooked through and the sauce has thickened slightly. Season with salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste.
