Blogger Challenge #2

Here is an easy dinner I make often using some easy store bought ingredients. I got the Curry Paste idea from Kelly. She uses this stuff too. Maybe she will post what she does with it as well.

There are other recipes on their website.

Eryn had a bite of it the other night at home group and asked for the recipe...

Coconut Curry Chicken

One packet Red Curry Paste from "A Taste of Thai" (available at Winco)
2 cans coconut milk (found in the same Asian section at Winco)
2 chicken breasts
1 onion, sliced
1 can bamboo shoots or water chestnuts
Fresh basil, cut into small strips

Cut chicken into bite-sized pieces. Cook in oil with sliced onion until no longer pink. Add water chestnuts or bamboo shoots.

In a saucepan, mix 2 cans coconut milk with 2 Tbsp of Red Curry paste. Heat to a boil and reduce heat for a few minutes.

Pour sauce over chicken. Add fresh basil strips. Serve over rice, preferrably basmati or jasmine for best asian flavor.
