This recipe made maybe one of the most fantastic curry dishes I’ve ever had in my life. Day 7 was out of this world!

Ingredients:

2 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves – cut into small chunks
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 cup packed Farmer’s Market Pumpkin
1 tablespoon butter
1 onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, chopped

1 tablespoon ground coriander
1 tablespoon ground cumin
1 pinch ground turmeric
1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1/2 cup canned coconut milk
1 1/2 cups chicken broth
salt to taste
Parsley for garnish (optional)

Directions:

Season the chicken pieces with salt and pepper. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add chicken to the skillet; cook and stir until browned on the outside and cooked through. Remove from the heat and set aside. Melt the butter in a separate skillet over medium heat. Add onion, garlic and ginger; cook and stir until onion is transparent.
