Every Wednesday, I head out to the farm house to pick up my CSA share ~ and one of the best parts about going out to the farm house to pick up my veggies in a bag is being able to smell the food from the 1,001,594 food trucks lined up all over the curb.

You can typically find everything from chicken and waffles to frozen  yogurt, charbroiled burgers, horchata and empanadas to iced coffee and beignets.   Yum!

Instant Pot Basil Chicken Coconut Curry
Prep Time: 5 minutes

Cook Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 15 minutes
Yield: Serves 4
An incredibly easy basil chicken coconut curry created in less than 15 minutes using your Instant Pot.


2 boneless skinless chicken breast, cut into 1" cubes
4 cloves garlic, minced
1 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1 Tbsp curry powder
1/4 tsp black pepper
1/2 tsp chili powder
1/2 red onion, chopped
1 Tbsp dry basil
1/2 tsp cardamom
1 tsp grated ginger
1 can full fat coconut milk (we use this variety
1 Tbsp tapioca flour/starch
1 Tbsp chopped cilantro
1 C. white rice
1 1/2 C. water
1 Tbsp butter


To cook the rice:
Place the water, rice and butter in the Instant Pot.
Put the lid on the pot, seal the valve, and set the timer for manual (high) for 7 minutes.
Once done, release the pressure through a quick release and serve.
For the curry:
In the Instant Pot, use the saute setting and combine the chicken, oil and garlic.
Brown the chicken for 2-3 minutes on each side, then add in the curry, black pepper, chili powder, onions, dry basil, cardamom, and grated ginger.
Stir the chicken to distribute the spices evenly, then turn OFF the saute function.
Pour in the coconut milk, and add the top to the Instant Pot.
Close the lid, seal the valve and set the timer for manual (high) and 5 minutes.
Once the pot beeps, remove 1/4 C. of the liquid and combine with the tapioca flour/starch - mix until blended.
Pour that mixture back into the pot and stir to distribute evenly.
Let the mixture stand for 2-3 minutes to thicken, add the cilantro and stir to combine. Serve over rice.


May use cornstarch or arrowroot flour in place of tapioca flour. Refrigerate leftovers and eat within 4 days.
