Cooking With Saki

Hi kids!  Today, we're going to make Coconut Curry Chicken.  Don't be scared, it's not as difficult as it sounds and it's so delicious my three year old even eats it (and it's a well known fact that she survives on air, and capri sun pouches).  So, step into your flip flops and head to the store, because you will need:

1 c. coconut milk
2 TBL chopped fresh cilantro
2 tsp. red curry paste
1/2 tsp. brown sugar
1 red bell pepper, sliced
1 bag fresh baby spinach (about 4 cups, give or take)
2 boneless skinless chicken breasts
salt and pepper to taste

Whisk coconut milk, cilantro, curry paste and brown sugar together in a bowl.  Cut the chicken breasts into medallions and salt and pepper as you see fit.  If you're feeling adventurous, sprinkle some red pepper flake in there, or a little ground cayenne.  Cook the chicken in a skillet with some extra virgin olive oil.  Once the chicken is cooked throughout, add sauce and red pepper.  Once sauce is bubbly, and the red pepper begins to soften, add the spinach and cover, cooking just until wilted.  Give it a final stir, and enjoy :)
