If you are looking for a simple to prepare yet exotic meal, look no further. This dish is extremely easy to prepare, with a minimum of ingredients, and yet when you bring the bubbling dish out of the oven , no one will doubt it a bit when you insist you spent all day in the kitchen preparing such a seemingly complex and very delicious dish.

Amount Measure Ingredients
2 lbs Boneless skinless chicken (thighs or breasts will work equally well)
2 cups canned coconut milk
1-½ tablespoon Garam Masala
1 tablespoon Lime juice (fresh squeezed works best here)
1 tablespoon grated fresh ginger root (must be fresh ginger, dried will not work)
2 tablespoon soy sauce
1 teaspoon chicken base
1 tablespoon cornstarch mixed with 4 oz water

To prepare:

Cut the chicken into large pieces about 1-½ – 2 inch chunks. Combine with the garam masala, coconut milk, lime juice, soy sauce, and ginger. Pour into a deep casserole dish and place in a oven preheated to 375 degrees. Bake 45 minutes then combine chicken base, and cornstarch and water mixture, mix into chicken and cook additional 15 minutes until thickened. Serve hot, over rice and warm pita bread.
