This is a go-to easy week night recipe for me, and also an easy one to double and take as a pot luck for work.  It is easy, and tasty, and an easy meal to make by adding a tossed salad and rice.

It is a sweet, savoury curry, not hot (unless you want to make it hotter!).  The sauce is lovely over rice.



I just made a batch recently for a pot luck...



Northern Thai Curry Chicken
serves 4
1 tsp sesame oil
1 lb boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cubed
2 tbsp red curry paste (I often use a bit more, to taste)
1 tbsp curry powder (again, using a bit more to taste)
water
1/2 cup coconut milk
1/4 cup tomato paste
2 tbsp fish sauce
2 tbsp brown sugar
2 medium tomatoes cut into wedges
1 bunch cilantro, rinsed

Heat oil in wok or large pan.  Cook chicken to lightly brown outside.  Stir in curry paste and powder to evenly coat chicken.

Stir in enough water to cover (I actually find this to be too much water and enough to come up halfway is more than enough) and bring to a boil.  Reduce heat, cover and simmer until chicken is no longer pink.  Stir in coconut milk, tomato paste, fish sauce, sugar, and half of the tomato wedges.

Cook and stir over low heat until the sauce is smooth and creamy.  Mix in remaining tomatoes and cook until tender and warmed through.

More on my blog, including how to microwave cook the rice too - a useful way to do it when time is short.

That looks delish! I'm always trying to find good meat recipes, we have one kid who doesn't like it unless it's disguised Tongue.

It would probably work with a firm tofu or tofurkey type meat too - but that is not an option here - Jim is firmly anti tofu and meat substitutes (I try not to mention it when it's in his miso soup at the Japanese restaurant - shhhhhh).

Eww, me too unless it is in miso soup. He is the one who needs protein the most, meat variety especially.  I was veg, vegan, raw vegan for years, I know exactly the sort of damage that can do to a body long term Tongue. His constitution is so like mine, he has to eat the stuff, I just have to disguise it, lol.

Onyxnox, that looks so tasty! And if I can make it spicy, that's super to me! I LOVE spicy stuff. My hubs says my taste buds are all burnt off due to growing up eating spicy foods! lol Roll Eyes

Oh yes - I would add some of those fresh small hot peppers, or some chili garlic sauce, or just add sambal oelek, or something like that.
