Coconut Curry Chicken w/String Beans

So, I think it has become quite obvious that I love curry.  I have to admit, I hesitated sharing this recipe with you guys on this post because my last food post was also a curry dish.  But then I thought, it's not like this is some kind of publication--this is just my blog.  And hey, I just made this last night, I liked it, so I am going to damn well share it!


This dish was a hit.  To me, it's just a healthier take on the traditional style Caribbean curry chicken.  Instead of potatoes, string beans are added--which equals less starch, less carbs and less calories.  On hindsight, I think throwing in some shredded carrot would have been awesome too.



It was super easy to make, and for the most part I followed the recipe exactly.  One thing I did do differently was instead of "burning off" some of the liquid in the end.  I added a tablespoon or two of corn starch to thicken it.  I like my curry to have plenty "gravy".  Oh, and Publix didn't have bird pepper, so I just added a little bit of chopped serrano  pepper.  We likes it spicy over here.

I got this recipe from a Caribbean cooking blog that is amazing.  I've made a few of his dishes and they all were great.  Check it out.  Recipe found HERE.

Have a great weekend, ya'll!
