Golden Coconut Curry Chicken Recipe
Do you ever crave something a little bit spicy? I do, and my Golden Coconut Curry Chicken Recipe is the ideal dish to hit that craving. This golden dish gets its vibrant color from the curry powder, and turmeric, which on their own are not spicy, just warm, comforting flavor notes.
To bring the heat, I use Harissa, a hot chili paste. There are several varieties of chili paste, available at the market, just use the one you like best. Even crushed red pepper will bring as little or much spice to this dish as you want. If you don’t like spicy foods, just omit the chili, there are still plenty of flavors here to satisfy you.
Any vegetable combination will work in a chicken curry, I chose to stick with the golden, orange tones of the spices to create a dish as blazing as the rising sun!
Currys are fantastic served over brown rice, quinoa, couscous, or even riced cauliflower. Even if you don’t like spicy foods, I hope you will try this wholesome one-pot wonder and adjust the chili paste to your tastes. And be sure and let me know how you like it!!
