1 tbsp (15 mL) butter
1 1/2 tbsp (22 mL) mild Indian yellow curry paste
1 large sweet red pepper, chopped
1 lb (500 g) boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1-inch (2.5 cm) chunks
2 tsp (10 mL) all-purpose flour
1 cup (250 mL) 10% half-and-half or
18% table cream
2 tbsp (30 mL) chopped fresh cilantro
Juice of half a lime
Sweetened shredded coconut (optional)
Lime wedges


In a large skillet, melt butter over medium heat. Add curry paste and 1/4 tsp (1 mL) salt;

cook, stirring, for 1 minute or until very fragrant and starting to brown. Add red pepper;

cook, stirring, for 2 minutes, or until starting to soften. Stir in chicken; cook, stirring, for 1 to 2 minutes or until well coated and starting to turn white.

Whisk flour into cream; pour into skillet and bring to a simmer, stirring to combine. Reduce heat and simmer, stirring often, for about 8 minutes or just until chicken is no longer pink inside and sauce is slightly thickened. Stir in cilantro and lime juice. Season to taste with more salt, if desired.
