Ingredients

How to make it

  • In a large saucepan, heat the oil over moderately low heat. Add the onion and cook, stirring occasionally, until it is translucent, about 5 minutes.
  • Add the garlic, ginger, five-spice powder, cumin, cayenne, turmeric, and 1/2 teaspoon of the salt. Stir until fragrant, about 1 minute.
  • Whisk in the broth and then the coconut milk; bring to a simmer. Stir in the potatoes, cover, and cook over low heat until they are almost tender, about 12 minutes.
  • Add the chicken to the sauce, cover, and simmer for 5 minutes. Stir in the peanuts, tomatoes, cilantro, and the remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt. Turn the heat off, cover, and let steam until the chicken is just done, about 2 minutes longer.
  • Menu Suggestion
  • For this curry, steamed white rice is the only accompaniment you need.

    Dude this was magic. I substituted the chicken for tofu but I'm going to tell all the babes that this was my own recipe :P

    Made this last night and we thoroughly enjoyed it! Today I came home from work and my boyfriend was eating it cold with blue corn chips. =)

    I love curry, but I am sick of the same ol' curry's that you find in these so called Indian/Thai restaurants where I live. I can't wait to make this one!

    Made this again tonight, but this time had the idea of subbing the potatoes with a mixture of small cauliflower florets and small chunks of sweet potato, both of which which are more diabetic-friendly to me than the potatoes. Maybe not authentic but it was still a treat.
    Cheers

    We had this for dinner tonight - it was superb. The only slight change was I used chicken thigh meat instead of breast. I bought 5-spice powder in a fit of enthusiasm a while ago and I've been looking for the best recipe to use it in. Got a winner here! Thanks!
    love sitbynellie

    I found this blan too and over "watery" - I think the chix stock needs to be reduced a little first, and and then add the coconut milk. I also used lite coconut milk instead, that could of been the problem.

    Hey Coffey, If you can't find five-spice powder at your local grocery store, try an Asian market. If that doesn't work, you can buy it online at http://www.penzeys.com/cgi-bin/penzeys/shophome.html or http://www.savoryspiceshop.com/ Good luck!
