DIRECTIONS

  • In a medium saucepan combine 1/2 to Tbsp Red Curry paste (I like it spicy -- so I use 1 Tbsp) with one can of coconut milk. (I use light coconut milk to save calories/fat).
  • Simmer for 5 minutes. Add 1/4 cup fresh basil, 1/4 cup bamboo shoots, 3 tsp Fish Sauce, 2 Tbsp brown sugar, 1/3 cup chicken stock, and 1/2 cup of your favorite mushrooms (I use the Japanese style and shitake). Simmer for 10 to 15 minutes.
  • While you are simmering -- saute the chopped peppers (1 or 2 inch pieces) and chopped onion in a frying pan or wok lightly covered in olive oil. Fry lightly peppered chicken breasts till cooked through.
  • Place sauteed peppers and onions on bowls of rice and spoon curry sauce over rice. You can either use curry sauce to lightly flavor rice or more as a soupy type mixture. I use short grain brown rice -- but any type is fine. Add cut chicken breast or other meat/tofu if desired.

“This is one of my favorites dish to make...and what my DH calls my "signature dish." It's easy, yummy, and healthy! I loosely based the recipe off instructions on a bottle of Thai Kitchen red curry paste. Rice expressions has an organic frozen short grain rice package that is perfect with this dish. I often sub in pan fried firm tofu instead of the chicken...and certainly you can mix up the veggies with what you have on hand. Enjoy!”
