Chicken Samlá (Cambodian Chicken Curry)

From Cooking Light....This is one of the most popular dishes in Cambodia. It's a soupy curry that's more aromatic and less spicy than curries found in other parts of Southeast Asia. It uses a substantial amount of fresh ginger and lemongrass for flavor and fragrance. Serve over rice to soak up the sauce.

ingredients

directions

  • Place first 10 ingredients in a food processor; process until minced, scraping sides of bowl occasionally.
  • Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Coat pan with cooking spray. Add ginger mixture; sauté 2 minutes. Add chicken; cook 2 minutes on each side. Add broth, coconut milk, and sugar, scraping pan to loosen browned bits; bring mixture to a boil. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer 45 minutes or until chicken is done.
  • Remove pan from heat. Remove chicken from pan, reserving liquid in pan; cool chicken slightly. Remove the meat from bones, and discard bones. Place pan over medium heat. Stir in chicken and lime juice; cook for 2 minutes or until thoroughly heated. Serve with lime wedges, if desired.
  • Cooking Light does not give prep or cook time. The times listed is my guess.

    Great dish! I used 1.5 lbs of boneless, skinless chicken thighs and dumped in about 1/2 cup of uncooked long grain rice when with 30 min of cooking time left. When it was done, I shredded up the chicken and added the lime juice . . . YUMMY! Thanks for sharing!

    I tried making this dish just the other night, and it was incredibly good. I'm a huge fan of indian and asian cuisine, and this was just great.
