Yellow Coconut Curry with Chicken and Vegetables

I was inspired to create this yellow coconut curry with chicken and vegetables when I discovered some chicken thighs in one of my monthly shipment from ButcherBox.

I don’t usually buy chicken thighs but they turned out to be the perfect protein choice for a low carb day on the FASTer Way to Fat Loss.

There’s something about curry on a cold day that is so comforting and temperatures had finally dropped to a temperature that felt like fall here in Los Angeles.

This recipe makes for a full bodied, mild curry with incredible subtleties in the flavor profile.

Here’s what you’ll need to make this simple, tasty yellow coconut curry:

  • 12 ounces of chicken thigh meat
  • onion
  • garlic
  • 1 Chinese eggplant
  • 3 zucchinis
  • 1 each yellow pepper and orange pepper
  • full fat coconut milk
  • green onions (scallions)
  • turmeric
  • yellow curry

I favor Chinese eggplant over regular eggplant for this recipe for it’s milder flavor and lovely texture.  You can substitute with a small Italian eggplant if you prefer.

Make sure to use full fat coconut milk for the full flavor experience.  This is healthy fat so go ahead and indulge!!

Feel free to adjust spices to your personal preference. I love a full bodied curry that isn’t too hot to enjoy.
