  3. Add the curry powder and stir well, cooking for 3-4 minutes more.
  4. Add the scallions and coconut milk, increase the heat to medium-high, and cook for 8-10 minutes, until the coconut milk is boiling and begins to thicken.
  5. Add the marinated chicken and stir well. Cook the chicken for 5 minutes, or until starting to brown. Season with pepper.
  6. Add the chicken broth to the pot and stir.
  7. Bring to a rolling boil and cover the pot. Simmer for 30 minutes, until the sauce thickens into a gravy.
