    Ingredients (served 8):
    - 4 chicken thighs, skin on
    - 6 chicken drumsticks, skin on
    - 3 Tbsp coconut oil
    - 1 Onion – finely chopped
    - 7 garlic cloves – smashed and roughly chopped
    - 1 red chili pepper – seeds removed, chopped (I used a Scotch Bonnet pepper)
    - 2 can coconut milk
    - 2 Tbsp curry powder


1. In a large skillet, heat coconut oil to a med-high heat
2. Put chicken pieces into the skillet and cook until each side golden-browned (about 3 min per side)
3. Remove chicken and set aside.
4. Add onion, garlic and chili – saute for about 3 min or until soft
5. Add the coconut milk and curry powder – mix together thoroughly
6. Add back the chicken and simmer at medium heat covered for about 15-20 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through. You can use a meat thermometer to check and it should be about 155 before you stop cooking it (it will continue to cook up to 160 which is the perfect internal temp). The coconut milk that the chicken is simmering in should cover about 1/2 of the chicken – if yours’ doesn’t you can add more coconut milk or some chicken stock.
7. For the cauliflower rice, either use your food processor to chop one cauliflower to a rice consistency or use a cheese grater. If you have a microwave you can cook it in the microwave for 3 minutes and it’ll be good to go. Otherwise you can steam it for a few minutes. I always cook my cauliflower after I’ve grated it.
8. Serve the chicken on a bed of cauliflower rice.
9. Enjoy!

    Very tasty! I didn't do the cauliflower rice though. Instead I made a creamed coconut kale side dish that went with it wonderfully. Thanks for the addition to my recipe book. :) - 12/26/10

    Loved it ! Super good. Just go eas on the curry at first as it can be spicy if your not used to it. Also adding fresh pineapple might be a interesting twist . - 11/16/11
