Thai Green Curry with Chicken and Summer Vegetables

I love green curry coconut milk recipes. It was love at first taste similar to Tikka Masala. The smoothness paired with the heat and flavor of the green curry are magical in this guys opinion.

The lady who cuts my hair is Thai. Her mom owned a restaurant which now her sister runs. I was talking to her the other day and we got to talking about her mom, cooking, meals etc.. When I asked her what was her Mom’s “go to” dish that you love the most? “Green curry” replied. So naturally it made me put it on the menu for this week.

As we close out summer and enjoy the season’s vegetables, I decide to incorporate some of them into this curry.

Ingredients:
1 jar of Green Curry Paste (used store bought)
1 lbs Chicken Thighs and Breasts (chopped into bite sized pieces)
Red Bell Pepper
Zucchini diced
4 ounces of shitake mushrooms
2 ears of corn (cooked and kernels removed)
Fresh Basil and Lemon Verbena
2 cans of Coconut milk (add more if you need more liquid or water)
Dash of Fish Sauce
1tbs Sriracha
Juice of a lime
Brown or Jasmine rice

Directions:
Stir in 2 tbs of Green Curry Paste in a medium heated pot to heat it up. Then add coconut milk, stir and combine. Add chicken pieces and cook for about 15mins. Then add red peppers, fish sauce and Sriracha and stir for about 15 mins. Taste and add more green curry paste if you need it. Then add the rest of the veggies and based upon how firm you like it them stir and for another 5-15mins. Turn off heat and stir in basil and verbena and let it cool to serve over rice.

  1. I love your blog, food and cocktail pairings, but I think we have different versions of “difficulty.” For me, over five ingredients and the recipe bumps up past “easy.” But I don’t cook. Only live tweet. Maybe we can combine our talents…you cook and I’ll live tweet it with commentary on the “difficulty.” Oh, and I also volunteer to sample these awesome looking cocktails!

    1. A comment from ruffles at 2am? You need not only a cocktail but perhaps a little separation from your phone? As for your proposal, can you live tweet with one hand or do I need to spoon feed you too?
