Thai Chicken Curry

After trying Thai in your kitchen, you’ll be reluctant to ever eat at or order from a Thai restaurant again. The first time I ever made Thai food myself, I couldn’t believe how easy and cheap it was! And the taste? I have to admit it’s restaurant worthy. And you know what you’re putting into it! It’s a serious win-win situation.

Thai Chicken Curry

Ingredients

  • 1 can coconut milk
  • 1 1/2 tsp Thai curry paste
  • 1 bell pepper sliced
  • 1 white or red onion sliced
  • 1 lb. chicken breast or tenders cut into strips or bite-size
  • 1 tbsp honey or brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp fish sauce
  • 1 tsp ginger paste or minced
  • 1 cup chopped tomatoes seeded
  • fresh basil leaves torn
  • frozen green peas
  • juice of half a lime
  • salt

Instructions

Bring about 1/4 can of coconut milk and Thai curry paste to a boil over medium-high heat in a large skillet, stirring to mix thoroughly. Add bell pepper and onion slices, and sauté until slightly softened, about 5 minutes. Add chicken, remaining can of coconut milk, honey (or brown sugar), fish sauce, and ginger. Stir and cook until chicken is thoroughly cooked, about 5 minutes. Add tomatoes, basil, frozen peas, and lime juice, and allow to simmer for about 1 minute. Season with salt according to taste.

First prep your veggies. And don’t be limited by these. You can add whatever your little heart desires. I used these yellow sweet mini peppers instead of bell peppers, because they were in the fridge being ignored.

Then cut your chicken anyway you want. I cut them into sashimi-looking pieces, because I wanted to feel like a sushi chef.

And these are the rest of the ingredients, minus the ginger paste. If you buy a little jar of the Thai red curry paste, it will last forever. Same goes for the fish sauce. I usually use the Three Crabs brand fish sauce, but this Thai Kitchen brand was lingering in my fridge for a while.

Bring 1/4 can of coconut milk and curry paste to a boil over medium-high heat, stirring to mix.

Sauté pepper and onion slices for about 5 minutes.

Add chicken, remaining can of coconut milk, honey (or brown sugar), fish sauce, and ginger. Cook for about 5 minutes or until chicken is cooked thoroughly.

Then add your tomatoes, basil, frozen peas, and lime. Simmer for about 1 minute. Doesn’t my nail color look great against the lime?

Forgot to add my frozen peas. I feel like frozen peas are almost a must for this. Not only does it add color, but I love the texture of them in every bite. Of course you have to use frozen peas for that almost-crunch. No canned peas please.

Add salt to taste, and garnish with fresh basil to be fancy. A bowl of steaming rice is also a must.

Wasn’t that super easy?
