How to Make

  3. In a large high-sided skillet heat the oil over a medium heat, add garlic and onions and sauté until onions are soft, about 3 to 5 minutes.
  4. Holding back cilantro and pineapple, stir in peppers and chicken. Add chili and all the seasonings. Stir well to coat the chicken, stir in the broth, coconut milk, season with salt and pepper, lower heat and cook stirring occasionally for 10 minutes, stir in pineapple and cilantro, holding back a little for garnish.
  5. Divide half a cup of cooked rice between 8 warm shallow bowls, top with Sri Lankan Chicken. Sprinkle over remaining cilantro and pineapple and serve immediately.
