Chicken Coconut Curry


1 pound small red potatoes, halved or quartered
Coarse salt
1 1/2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breast halves, sliced crosswise into 3/4-inch-wide strips
1 tablespoon curry powder
3 teaspoons vegetable oil
6 garlic cloves, minced
1/4 teaspoon red-pepper flakes
3/4 cup canned coconut milk
1 tablespoon tomato paste
1 cup frozen peas, thawed
1/4 cup dry-roasted peanuts, chopped


In a medium saucepan, cover potatoes with salted water by 1 inch. Bring to a boil; reduce heat, and simmer until potatoes are fork-tender, 10 to 12 minutes. Drain

Meanwhile, in a bowl, toss chicken with curry powder and 1 teaspoon salt. In a large nonstick skillet, heat 1 teaspoon oil over medium-high heat. Cook half the chicken, turning often, until browned and cooked through, 5 to 6 minutes. Transfer to a plate. Repeat with another teaspoon oil and remaining chicken.

Reduce heat to medium-low. Cook garlic and pepper flakes in remaining teaspoon oil until fragrant, about 1 minute. In a small bowl, whisk together coconut milk, tomato paste, and 1/4 cup water. Pour into pan, add peas, and stir until liquid just begins to simmer.

Return chicken to pan along with potatoes. Toss until warmed through and coated with sauce, 1 to 2 minutes. Serve topped with peanuts.
