Thai Green Chicken Curry

Monday, November 21, 2011

Thai Green Chicken Curry is my husbands favourite dish and since it was his birthday last week I made it for him as a treat, it's fairly primal, not so much a weight loss dish unless you have a small portion and we all know I'm not about small portions ;)

Serves 3

2 good sized chicken breasts
3 cloves garlic grated/chopped or crushed
3-4cm square piece of fresh ginger grated
1/2 onion
bunch of fresh corriander
1/2 fresh lemon or lime
2 Tbsps Fish Sauce
Thai Green curry paste (1/2 - 1tsp depending on how hot you want it)
2 Tbsp's Trident Sweet chilli sauce - more or less depending on sweetness (I have found that the Trident brand has no high fructose corn syrup it has sugar)
250mls Kara Coconut Cream (I prefer Kara Coconut Cream as it tastes wonderful and has less processed ingredients in it)
3 kafir lime leaves if you can get them same goes for lemongrass but still great without these ingredients

Dice chicken and fry until nearly cooked and put aside.
Cook onion in butter, once done add ginger and garlic and cook for just a little then add fish sauce, lemon juice and green curry paste and let cook out for a minute or so, add coconut cream and combine well.  Drop in your cooked chicken and half the coriander and simmer for about 10minutes so that the chicken is cooked and the sauce has reduced.  Add the remining coriander and the sweet chilli sauce.

Serve on rice or cauliflower rice, if you were being weight loss consious reduce the sweet chillis sauce and serve on cauliflower rice or vegetables.

It's delish!!
