    • 3 tbsp red curry paste

    • 1 tin full-fat coconut milk

    • 16g cilantro and/or basil

    • 2 tsp fish sauce (optional)


    Serves : 4

    Cooks In : 30 min

    Difficulty : Easy

    Preparation Method :

    1. Start by prepping ingredients: Dice the onion and mince the garlic and ginger. Thinly slice the red bell pepper into long vertical strips and then cut those strips in half horizontally.
    2. Heat 2 tablespoons of coconut oil in a large stockpot over medium-high heat.
    3. Add the onion and saute for 3-5 minutes or until the onions begin to turn golden.
    4. Add the garlic and ginger; stir to coat everything with the oil. Lower the heat to low and add in the curry powder, red curry paste and coriander. Stir often for 2-3 minutes or until lightly toasted and fragrant.
    5. Return the heat to medium-high. Add in the remaining 1 tablespoon of coconut oil and the red bell pepper. Stir for 1-2 minutes and then add in the bite-sized pieces of chicken.
    6. Sprinkle on salt and pepper to taste.
    7. Cook, stirring often for about 4-5 minutes or until the chicken is browned on both sides, but not cooked through.
    8. Pour in the coconut milk, lime juice and brown sugar.
    9. Stir until the chicken is cooked through and the curry is slightly thickened.
    10. If desired, stir in the fish sauce.


    Tips :

    If you want a thicker sauce, you can remove 1-2 tablespoons of the sauce to a small bowl and whisk in 1 tablespoon of flour until smooth. Whisk this mixture back into the curry sauce. Serve over/with: cooked basmati rice and naan bread with additional lime wedges. Garnish individual plates with cilantro and/or basil.
