How to Make Curried Coconut Chicken


Season chicken pieces with salt and pepper; set aside.


Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook and stir curry powder in hot oil for 1 minute. Stir in onions and garlic; cook 1 minute. Add chicken, tossing lightly to coat with curry oil. Reduce heat to medium and cook, stirring occasionally, until chicken is no longer pink in the center and juices run clear, 7 to 10 minutes.


Stir tomatoes, coconut milk, tomato sauce, and sugar into the skillet. Cover and simmer, stirring occasionally, for 30 to 40 minutes.
