Dad’s green chicken curry
My dad should be on Master Chef. He would totally win. One of my favorite meals my dad made growing up with a delicious green curry. It is out of this world delicious and very simple! I’ve made this recipe myself more times than I can count and it’s different every time. I always try new veggies that give the meal a whole new flavor. Easy on the green curry paste- it will burn your mouth off!
Ingredients: 1-1.5 pounds of chicken tenders, 1 cup of jasmine rice, 2 tablespoons of green curry paste, 1 tablespoon of minced ginger, 2 minced garlic cloves, 1 can of full-fat coconut milk, 1 4 ounces can of bamboo shoots, 3 chopped carrots, 2 cups of fresh green beans, 1 green bell pepper, 1 white onion, salt and pepper to taste. Pro tip- use your favorite vegetables in this dish! It’s fun to add new flavors to the dish like mushrooms, red bell peppers, jalapenos, etc.
Cut up your chicken tenders into small cubes. Cook over medium heat in a large skillet with a bit of olive oil until lightly browned. Remove the chicken and place it on a plate to use later.
In a medium-sized pot, cook your jasmine rice. Bring 2 cups of water to a boil. Add 1 cup of jasmine rice. Reduce heat to low/medium. Cover and let simmer.
In the same skillet add your chopped garlic, ginger, and full-fat coconut milk. Cook on high heat until it starts to simmer.
Add all your vegetables and bamboo shoots to the skillet and cover. Reduce heat to medium and cook until your vegetables are tender (about 10-12 minutes).
Add the green curry paste and chicken. Stir everything together until the curry paste is fully incorporated. Cover and cook on medium heat for 5-8 minutes or until fragrant.
Serve rice into a bowl and dish out the beautiful curry you made on top. Enjoy!
