Ingredients Nutrition


  1. 1. Heat the butter in pan until melted, add ginger, garlic, onion and tomato. Saute 10 min, until onions are browned.
  2. 2. Meanwhile, in a seperate pan, fully cook diced chicken.
  3. 3. Add coconut milk and sour cream to onion/tomato mixture. Add curry, cumin, sage, salt and pepper. Bring to rolling boil, stirring occasionally.
  4. 4. Add chicken to sauce and simmer 15-20 minute.
  5. 5. Remove from heat and let sit 5-10 min to thicken.
  6. 6. Serve over rice (see instructions below).
  7. My Brown Rice Instructions: Put brown rice and water together in a small pot. I use 3 cups rice with 4.5 cups water. Set the heat to high, and bring the rice/water to a boil uncovered. Then put the tight lid on pot (steam valve closed, if applicable), reduce the heat to low. Let the rice simmer for 20 minutes. Turn off the heat, let rice sit in covered pot for 10-20 minutes.
