I will say this before we go any further, if you can’t handle spice…this is not the dish for you!
This dish will clear your sinuses, grow new hair on your head, and give you a facial from all the sweat it produces on your face.
This is one of those quick and easy dishes that give the appearance of being labor intensive but it’s not.
If you keep a well stocked pantry like I do then it takes a matter of minutes to get this dish started.
This is a really simple dish with the help of Thai Kitchen wonderful products.
I also used some of these freezer ready ginger cubes from Dorot!
I sauteed the chicken in olive oil, the paprika I used gave the chicken a nice bright color.
This chicken turned out beautifully…next I sauteed garlic, Thai chili’s, ginger and a habanero pepper.
Add the chicken and pan juices back to the pot and cover with broth and diced tomatoes…allow that to cook for about 15 minutes.
Don’t forget to stir in the curry paste!
Reduce heat and stir in the thick coconut milk and watch the dish transform.
Now you can simmer the dish for about 15 more minutes.
I allowed it to simmer for an hour, making sure to stir as needed.
It’s all done and ready to eat!
I served my Curry with hot Thai Jasmine rice and a crusty loaf of bread for dipping!
Again, if you like spice…this is the perfect winter dish!
