Easy coconut curry chicken

Despite our panic eating of cookies and fast food, we still manage healthy dinners. Tonight I wanted something a little different and remembered I had just bought curry powder and coconut; coconut curry chicken was placed on the dinner menu! Bonus points because it will fit into our Whole30 diet challenge that we start on Monday and I will definitely be making it again!

Here’s the recipe(after the jump) :
