I guess you could sub out some of this stuff for a healthier version, but here is the original.
24oz (4 6oz pieces) pre cooked chicken breasts
1/2 teaspoon red curry powder
coarse salt and ground pepper
2 tablespoons plus one teaspoon veg oil
2 packed cups of cilantro leaves
1/2 teaspoon grated peeled ginger
1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
t tablespoon rice vinegar
1/2 teaspoon sugar
1 shallot, chopped 1 teaspoon tumeric
3/4 cup coconut milk
1 cup basmati rice
Sprinkle chicken with curry powder, season with salt and pepper.
In a large skillet, heat one tablespoon oil over medium-low. Add chicken
and cook until golden and opaque throughout. 30-35 minutes, turning once.
In a blender, combine 1 tablespoon oil, cilantro, ginger, lime juice,
vinegar, sugar, and 3 tablespoons of water. Puree until smooth; set aside.
In a medium saucepan, heat remaining teaspoon oil over medium. Add shallot
and tumeric; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionaly, until
shallot begins to soften, 1-2 minutes. Add cocnut milk and 1 cup water;
bring to a boil. Stir in rice; return to a boil. Reduce to a simmer, cover,
and cook until rice is tender, 12-14 minutes. Remove pan from heat and let
stand, covered, for 5 minutes. Fluff with a fork just before serving. Serve
rice topped with chicken and drizzled with sauce.

I use the pre-made green curry paste. I get mine at a hole-in-the wall asian market, but you can get it in the asian food section of your grocery store. Light Coconut milk is pretty much the same in flavor, and you can use brown rice instead of basmati.
The paste keeps you from having to by all of the individual spices.

My friend gave me a can and told me where to buy it, it's called MAESRI; you can find the WorldFood brand at the grocery store. My friend is a sushi chef at a high end thai restaurant he said that's exactly what they use.

I'm half Thai. Always eating curry chicken and stir fry. I've never seen it made like that, but I think I'll have to try it. Looks pretty good!

Hmm, odd that cilantro gives you heartburn, but 2 packed cups is a lot. I usually just make it with green beans and chicken. Sautee a little minced garlic in the pan, toss in the chicken and curry paste, then the beans. Pretty easy. Just so burned out on Asian food.
