coconut curry

last night for our weekly dinner group austin & i decided to make a coconut curry recipe that i had found on pinterest. i suggest you try it if you like curry because it's a really easy & delicious recipe!
here's what you need: 

3 skinless, boneless chicken breasts
2 t curry powder (we used extra to give it a richer flavor)
1 t salt
1/2 t pepper
1/4 t chili powder 
1 medium red onion, chopped
5 cloves of garlic, minced
2 jalapeƱo peppers, seeded & finely chopped 
1 T olive oil
one 14 ounce can of coconut milk
1 T cornstarch
1 T dried basil
1 t grated fresh ginger
3 cups of cooked rice

first you cut the chicken into little pieces & place them into a bowl. then stir together the curry, 1/2 t salt, pepper & chili powder. mix this into the bowl with the chicken, coating the it evenly. then cover, & let it chill for 1 to 2 hours.
you then stir onion, basil, garlic & peppers in a frying pan over medium-high with olive oil. heat until the onions are translucent, & add chicken & remaining 1/2 t salt. cook till chicken is done.
 last, combine coconut milk & cornstarch & whisk well to combine. you then add it to the skillet, stirring it around until it slightly thickens & stir in ginger. 
we served it over rice & picked up naan to go with it. 
pretty simple!
