  • 4 cups broccoli florets
  • 3 large boneless skinless chicken breasts thinly sliced into strips
  • 2 tablespoons + 2 teaspoons yellow curry powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt more to taste
  • 2 15-ounce cans Thai coconut milk see note
  • juice of ½ lime about 2 teaspoons
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • fresh cilantro for garnish


  • Drizzle sesame oil into a large skillet.
  • Add chicken and broccoli and saute over medium-high heat 2-3 minutes. Sprinkle curry powder and salt over the chicken and broccoli and continue to saute until broccoli is chicken is just barely cooked through, about 7-8 minutes.
  • Stir in coconut milk, lime juice, and sugar.
  • Taste, add salt as needed. Garnish with fresh cilantro and serve over rice.


I strongly prefer the Thai canned coconut milk to the coconut milk you would find in the refrigerated or baking section. You can find the Thai variety in the Asian aisle of most any grocery store. I usually use the Taste of Thai or Thai Kitchen unsweetened canned coconut milk. 
Curry by itself does not have a strong flavor - use salt to bring out the curry flavors! Taste, add salt, taste, and add more if needed.
