Servings: 4 Prep 20 mins Total Time 30 mins

Ingredients

  • 4 teaspoons olive oil
  • 12 ounces skinless boneless chicken breast, cut into thin strips
  • 1 medium onion, sliced
  • 1 tablespoon minced ginger
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 1 cup unsweetened light coconut milk
  • 1 cup canned pumpkin puree
  • 2 tablespoons curry powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper, plus more to taste if desired
  • 3 cups packed baby spinach (3 oz.)
  • 2 teaspoons fresh lime juice
  • 2 cups steamed basmati rice

Make It

1. Heat 2 tsp. olive oil in a large saucepan over medium-high heat. Add the chicken and cook until just done, 3 to 4 minutes. Remove from pan and set aside.

2. Reduce heat to medium. Add the remaining 2 tsp. olive oil to the skillet along with the onion, ginger and garlic. Cook and stir until onion is tender, about 5 minutes.

3. Stir in coconut milk, pumpkin puree, 1/2 cup water, curry powder, salt, and cayenne pepper. Simmer, uncovered, over medium-low heat for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add chicken back to the pan along with spinach and continue cooking until the greens have just wilted, 1 minute. Stir in lime juice. Serve with rice.
