What you'll need

Serves 4

  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • Red curry paste (30-100 grams)
  • 1 tablespoon fresh grated ginger
  • 3 chicken breasts, skinned and cubed
  • 1/2 brown onion, peeled and diced
  • 1 can light coconut milk (300ml)
  • 1 lime
  • Salt to taste

The easy bit

  1. Heat the oil over a high heat in a medium-sized heavy pot. Add the onion and saute for a few minutes then add the chicken and curry paste (30 grams for mild or 100 grams for hot).
  2. Add the ginger, give a few stirs and add the coconut milk. Salt very lightly.
  3. Add enough water to just cover the chicken pieces. Bring to the boil, turn down to a simmer and cook uncovered for 10 minutes. The sauce will have thickened slightly.
  4. Season to taste and serve.

Tip: If you want to make a 'meal in a pot', add some fresh green beans, courgette, broccoli and asian leaf vegetables (bok choy, choi sum etc.) when the chicken is cooked and cook for a further 5 minutes or so unti the vegetables are just tender. You can also add a squeeze of lime for extra taste.
