Ready In:
1hr 15mins




  • 1. Bring a large pot of water to a boil (about 4 quarts). Add rice and boil for 40 minutes, or until rice is tender, then drain.
  • 2. While rice is boiling, begin cleaning and prepping the vegetables and other ingredients. When cooking with a wok, it’s important to have everything right next to the wok and ready to go because of the high cooking temps. You’ll need to be prepared to be stirring constantly.
  • 3. When rice has been drained and plated, heat the wok on high until it starts to smoke slightly. Then add oil and dried chilis. Next add chicken and cook stirring constantly until it’s cooked on the outside. Add curry paste and stir, allowing the curry paste melt in the hot wok. After it’s been mixed thoroughly with the chicken- add garlic, sriracha, and fish sauce. Continue stirring constantly and add bell peppers; cook for 1 minute then add onion and cook until fork tender, but still slightly crisp. Stir in bamboo shoots, salt and pepper. Stir in coconut milk and bring to a boil. Turn off heat, add fresh basil and serve over cooked brown rice.

  1. I used dried Thai bird eye peppers and the full four oz of paste and did not need any sriracha, there was plenty of heat. Next time I make this I will add some finely shredded carrot or roux to make a thicker broth. This is a great dish for a cold night. We paired it with a Qupe Viognier and that worked very well.
