Recipe Ingredients for Thai red chicken curry

2 tablespoons canola or peanut oil
1 onion
2 teaspoons Thai red curry paste (or 3 teaspoons for a hotter curry)
2 cloves garlic
1 cup coconut milk
1 cup chicken stock
2 tablespoons fish sauce
1 tablespoon brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 zucchini
1 red pepper
1 cup brown rice
2 chicken breast
2 tablespoons cornstarch
2 tablespoons lemon juice
4 basil leaves

Recipe Directions for Thai red chicken curry

  1. HEAT the oil in a large saucepan over a medium heat and cook the onion for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. ADD the curry paste and garlic and cook, stirring, for a minute. ADD the coconut milk, stock, fish sauce, sugar and salt, then bring to the boil. ADD the red pepper and zucchini, cover with a lid, then reduce the heat to medium and simmer for 12 minutes. WHILE the curry simmers, cook the rice. ADD the chicken to the curry and simmer, covered, for a further 8 minutes. ADD the cornstarch paste and stir continuously until the curry thickens, then stir in the lemon juice and basil. SERVE on a bed of rice.

  2. Variations: This curry tastes equally delicious using any selection of seafood (such as shrimp, scallops or pieces of firm fish), or cubed firm tofu. You can also use a variety of different vegetables with this curry including shredded cabbage, thinly sliced carrot or green beans. Be flexible and adapt the recipe to make the most of seasonal produce.
