Thai Green Curry with Chicken

Thai green chicken curry is a real classic, we use a paste made in advance by Chorchaba,(we do run a class to make your own), but if buying she recommends the Mae Ploye brand but there are plenty to choose from.  The flavour combinations in Thai Green curry are immediately recognisable and as guests make their own meal, they can balance the levels of spice used to how fiery they want their meal!

Ingredients -serves 2

    • 300g Chicken breast
    • 25g Green curry paste
    • 1 tin 400ml Coconut milk
    • 2-3 Kaffir lime leaf torn (these can be kept frozen & smell amazing!)
    • Small bunch sweet Thai basil.
    • 1-2 Red green chilli cut diagonally
    • 1 tablespoon fish sauce.
    • Optional 2 teaspoon sugar

Method

  1. Heat ½ of the coconut milk in a pan and cook for 1 minute on low heat.
  2. Add the curry paste and cook until you can see the oil forming on the surface of the paste, stirring all the time.
  3. Add the meat and seal it.
  4. Add the remaining coconut milk, cook for a few minutes seasoning with fish sauce and optional sugar.
  5. To serve, sprinkle the chilli and sweet basil leaf as a garnish.
