Ingredients
  • 2 cups chicken breasts, cut into bite-size pieces
  • 4 Thai eggplants, sliced into 4 pieces or substitute with sliced green zucchini
  • 1 fresh red or green Thai chile or serrano pepper finely sliced (optional)
  • 1 cup Thai basil leaves or substitute with Italian basil leaves
  • 1 cup drained julienne bamboo shoots (optional)
  • 1 (13.5 oz.) can coconut milk
  • 3 cups water
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons green curry paste or use red curry paste (I usually make this dish with red curry paste but for some reason on this night I chose green)
  • 1 teaspoon sugar or palm sugar (preferred)
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons fish sauce
Directions
  • Step 1 Boil 3 cups of water, bring to boil and cook bamboo shoots for 3 minutes.  Then drain and set aside.
  • Step 2 In a wok or large saucepan heat 1/2 can of coconut milk until it bubbles.  Add green curry paste and briefly mix the paste with coconut milk until it becomes aromatic (3-4 minutes). Add rest of coconut milk, fish sauce and sugar, simmer for 5 minutes.  Turn down heat to low and cover saucepan 3/4 of the way with lid.
  • Step 3 Once coconut milk begins to bubble, add chicken. Once chicken is cooked add eggplants and bamboo (if using), cook for 3 minutes. Turn off heat, add basil and chile.
  • Step 4 Taste and add a splash of fish sauce if you it salty. Serve with brown or white rice.  You can even pour the curry over vermicelli noodles.

Green Chicken Curry

*Laotion’s and Thai’s like more liquid in their curry.  They use it to flavor their rice.  I like my curry in between therefore I do not add water to the base but you are welcome to.  If you decide to, add 1/4 cup of water.
