Green Chicken Curry

My friend Rivka introduced me to curry, and for that I thank her.  It is so yummy.  Curry paste varies a lot from brand to brand, so ask around and see what is good in your neck of the woods.  You can really add whatever veggies you have on hand; it’s  good one to play with and see what your family likes.  I did potatoes, carrots and peas because that is what I had… mushrooms, bell peppers, watercress, or bok choy would all be tasty.

Green Chicken Curry
2 lbs. chicken breast cut into bite sized pieces
1/2 cup corn starch
cooking oil
2-5 T. green curry paste (start with less and add more depending on how hot you like it…)
1/2 medium onion chopped
6 cloves garlic minced
1 T. fresh ginger minced
3 cans coconut milk
3 T. fish sauce
2 T. soy sauce
2 T. sugar
2 potatoes cubed
2 carrots sliced
1/2 c. peas
1 bunch cilantro, chopped
2 limes cut into wedges
Toss chicken in the corn starch to coat.  Heat a few tablespoons of oil in a large pan over medium high heat.  Cook chicken until browned, cooking in 2 or 3 batches.  Remove chicken from the pan.
Reduce heat to medium and add the curry paste to the pan.  Cook for about 1 minute to heat the paste until you can smell it.  Stir in onion, garlic, and ginger; cook for 2 minutes.  Return chicken to the skillet, stirring to coat with the curry mix.  Add the coconut milk, fish sauce, soy sauce, sugar, and veggies.  Simmer over medium heat until the veggies are tender (around 30 minutes).  Serve over rice with cilantro and lime juice (the cilantro and lime aren’t garnish… they really make the dish, so don’t forget them!)
