Coconut Curry Chicken with Cauliflower Rice

A few of you asked for this recipe yesterday. So here it is! 🙂

Please let me know how it turned out when you do make it.

This is an easy dinner for curry lovers. It can be served over rice too and even noodles would be delicious with it.

I cooked one large chicken breast, which I butterflied then cut up into strips. I cooked the strips on a grill pan until browned, removed to a bowl, then let them rest for a few minutes. The chicken could also be cubed, whatever you prefer.

This dish would work wonderfully with leftover chicken or shrimp. Just make the sauce and toss the meat with it. OR keep it vegetarian if you wish.
