Ingredients

  • 500 grams chicken breast diced
  • 4 cups cauliflower florets
  • 3 tbsp coconut oil
  • 3 tbsp fresh coriander chopped
  • 2.5 cups chicken stock
  • 2 cups kale
  • 2 tbsp coconut flakes toasted
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 2 tsp curry powder
  • 1.5 cups coconut milk
  • 1 tsp dried coriander
  • 1 tsp ground ginger
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 medium white onion sliced

Instructions

  • Heat a tablespoon of coconut oil in a large pan or casserole dish over a medium heat. Add the chicken pieces and cook until browned all over. Remove from the pan with a slotted spoon and set aside.
  • Reduce the heat and add the onion, garlic and dried spices. Stir well and sweat the vegetables until tender and fragrant.
  • Add the remaining coconut oil to the pan along with the cauliflower florets and stir well, covering the cauliflower in the spices and oil. Cook the cauliflower for a minute or two in the seasonings.
  • Add the coconut milk and broth to the pan and bring to a boil. Reduce back to a simmer and add the chicken back to the pan.
  • Continue to simmer gently for a further 10 minutes until the cauliflower is tender and the chicken is completely cooked through.

  • Scatter with fresh coriander and toasted coconut flakes to serve.
