This is really easy and really good. If you want to make a “meal in a pot”, add some fresh green beans when the chicken is cooked and cook for 5 minutes or so until the beans are just tender. Adding a squeeze of lime is great.

Because the whole spices are not eaten, they’re not included in the count.

Simple Chicken and Coconut Milk Curry

Serves 4

  • 2 Tbsp. vegetable oil
  • 1 1/2 tsp. whole black peppercorns
  • 3 1-1/2-inch pieces of cinnamon stick
  • 10 whole cloves
  • 8 whole cardamom pods
  • 3 dried red chilies
  • 1 Tbsp. fresh, grated ginger
  • 8 chicken thighs, skinned
  • 1 14-oz. can coconut milk
  • salt to taste

Over high heat in a medium-sized heavy pot, heat the oil. Add the peppercorns, cinnamon, cloves, cardamom and red chilies. Stir until the cardamom darkens slightly. Add the ginger, give a few stirs and add the chicken and coconut milk. Salt very lightly. Add enough water to just cover the chicken pieces. Bring to a boil, turn down to a simmer and cook uncovered for 40 minutes. The sauce will have thickened slightly. Season to taste. Try it with a squeeze of lime.
