Cooking Directions for Single Meal

  1. Cook the rice as directed on package.
  2. In a large saucepan or skillet, whisk the coconut milk, curry paste, curry powder, ginger, and garlic powder. If your coconut milk has separated in the can, it will become smooth again when it heats up.
  3. Stir in the pineapple, bell pepper slices and pieces of chicken. Let cook over medium low heat for about 15 minutes, allowing the chicken to cook through and the flavors to mingle.
  4. Serve Chicken Pineapple Curry over rice with cilantro and green onion garnish.

Freezeasy Meal Prep Directions

  1. Cut 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts into 1/2-inch pieces.
  2. Slice 1 orange & 1 yellow bell pepper.
  3. Whisk together 4 – 15 oz. cans light coconut milk, 6 Tbsp red curry paste, 2 Tbsp curry powder, 2 tsp ground ginger, and 2 tsp garlic powder.
  4. Open & drain 2 cans pineapple chunks.

To each gallon-size plastic freezer baggie, add the following ingredients:

  • Half of the pineapple chunks, well drained
  • Half of the sliced orange bell peppers
  • Half of the sliced yellow bell peppers
  • Chicken pieces, half into each bag
  • Prepared curry sauce, half into each bag

Remove as much air as possible and seal. Add label to baggie and freeze.

Freeze & Thaw Instructions

Put baggie in the freezer and freeze up to 6 months in fridge freezer or 12 months in a deep freezer. Thaw in the fridge overnight, or a warm bowl of water for about 20 minutes.

Special notes

If you wish to make a thicker curry sauce, you could use a 15 oz. can of coconut milk and a 15 oz. can of coconut cream (near the coconut milk). This is NOT the same coconut cream that is on the alcohol aisle.
