Green, Green, Green Chicken Curry!

I never wanted to be one of those bloggers who abandons their blog for a week without notice but with the start of a new uni semester, real life just got the better of me :P.   Apologies for the absence, there are many-a-post in draft form but I was so happy with the dish I recently cooked for my family, I’ve skipped ahead to share this recipe :).

Thai green curry chicken (aka Green x3 chicken curry!)

adapted from recipe found in Super Food Ideas, May 2008 (pg 56)

Serves 4

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 600g chicken thigh fillets, trimmed, cut into 3cm pieces
  • (Green 1) 2 small zucchini, thickly sliced (I misread and sliced them thinly >.<)
  • (Green 2) 500g broccoli, trimmed, cut into florets
  • 1/4 cup of green curry paste (add more depending on preferred spice level)
  • 400ml can light coconut cream
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons fish sauce
  • 4 kaffir lime leaves (I substituted it with ~ 2 tablespoons lemon juice)
  • (Green 3) 1/2 cup frozen peas
  • steamed rice, to serve
Method
  1. Heat oil in a saucepan over high heat.  Add chicken – cook, stirring for 5 to 7 minutes or until browned.
  2. Reduce heat to medium-high.  Add zucchini and broccoli.  Cook, stirring, for 2 minutes or until zucchini starts to soften.  Add curry paste – cook, stirring, for 1 minute or until fragrant.
  3. Add coconut cream, sugar, fish sauce, lime leaves (or lemon juice) – bring to boil.  Reduce heat to medium-low.  Simmer for 5 minutes or until sauce starts to thicken.
  4. Add peas, simmer for 2 minutes or until heated through.  Serve with steamed rice.

Voila!  I added an extra teaspoon of the green curry paste and it was perfect for our palettes :).  Parents said we never need to order green curry again because this tasted better than the restaurants… I was stoked!  Happy cooking!
