Green Curry Chicken:

I love thai food and have cooked it for many years, this is one of my favorite chicken dishes and I love the Green Curry Paste.  The dish is easy and quick..


1 whole chicken, cut up 
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
kaffir lime leaves (3), but if you can't find them you can use the zest from a lime
lemongrass 1 - 2 stalks
2 x 400ml coconut milk
1/4 cup cilantro leaves
red chili cut up, if you wish

Serve with steamed rice


In a heavy bottom pan, heat oil over medium heat .  Add the chicken pieces skin side down, and cook for about 4 -5 minutes or so, then remove to a plate and keep warm.

Add the curry and ginger to the pan and cook for a minute or so, then add the lime leaf, lemongrass and coconut milk, bring to a boil then lower to a simmer, add the chicken and cook over medium covered for about 25 minutes.  Temperature of chicken should be 70C/160F.

Top with cilantro and red chili sliced if you wish.
