Thai Chicken Curry with Lime and Coconut

This is a real favourite of mine and incredibly fast and easy to make.


1kg chicken thigh or breast meat / cut into thick strips
1T red curry paste (if using John West red curry paste I use 2tbsp as I find it’s not that hot)
1T vegetable oil
2-3T brown sugar
4 lime leaves (I use 2 whole lemon leaves if I don't have lime)
2t finely grated lime rind (again, I use lemon rind if I don’t have limes on hand)
250ml coconut cream
1T Thai fish sauce
2T coconut vinegar (most Asian shops have this, it’s just a very mild vinegar, only a couple of dollars a bottle, or water down some white vinegar or add a dash of white wine)
3T shredded coconut / coconut threads (otherwise use desiccated)
4 fresh sliced deseeded chillies (these go on the side, so optional)


Place chicken and curry paste in bowl and toss to coat
Heat the oil over high heat, add chicken and stir fry 5 mins or until lightly browned
Add sugar, lime leaves, lime rind, coconut cream and fish sauce
Simmer over medium heat for 4 mins until sugar dissolves
Stir in the vinegar and simmer until chicken is tender
Serve chillies on side if desired…
