    Ingredients

    • 3 tablespoons coconut or olive oil
    • 1 large sweet Vidalia or yellow onion, diced small
    • 1 pound boneless skinless chicken breast, diced into bite-sized pieces
    • 3 to 5 cloves garlic, finely minced or pressed
    • 2 to 3 teaspoons ground ginger or 1 tablespoon fresh ginger, finely chopped
    • 2 teaspoons ground coriander
    • 1 extra-large sweet potato or 2 medium sweet potatoes, peeled and diced into 1/2-inch pieces
    • one 15-ounce can coconut milk (I used lite; full-fat will deliver a richer/thicker result)
    • 1/4 cup Thai red curry paste, or to taste (if you’re very sensitive to heat, add 1 tablespoon first and more later if desired)
    • 2 teaspoon kosher salt, or to taste
    • 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, or to taste
    • 1 to 2 teaspoons lime zest, or to taste
    • 1/4 cup lime juice

    • 2 to 4 tablespoons brown sugar, packed; optional and to taste
    • rice for serving, optional
