Gluten Free Coconut Chicken Curry & Quinoa

I walked into the lunch room one day only to walk into this wonderful smell of curry coming from my colleague Shannon's lunch (Shannon also has a Celiac Dog).  So I had to ask what she had and she said it was a Coconut Curry & Quinoa.  So I told her I had to have the recipe for the blog.  I wish there was smell-o-vision for this one, because it smelt great!

This is gluten free, dairy free, and vegetarian if you take out the chicken.

Shannon's lunch!  Yes, I invaded her lunch with my cell phone pic
  • Chicken breast (or fish)
  • 1-2 Onions
  • 1-2 Carrots
  • 1 Red Pepper
  • 2 handfuls of Spinach
  • 1 cup Quinoa (or brown rice, or lentils)
  • Coconut milk (lite) {I didn’t uses lite… and I used a whole can and it turned out great}
  • Curry powder- 2 tbsp
  • Ground Cumin & Coriander – 1 tbsp
  • Coconut oil- 1 tbsp
  • Garlic powder- 1 tsp
  • Sea salt/ pepper to taste
  • Chili pepper – 1-2 tsp
  1. Combine ingredients for curry mixture in separate bowl.
  2. In pan on medium heat, cook chicken breast with a little water (not required if you have a good non-stick pan).  Add onions and carrots, once chicken has been cooked on both sides. Add curry mixture and remainder of vegetables, spinach last.  Cook for another 3-5 minutes, covered to steam the spinach.
  3. Cook quinoa to package directions.
