Thai Chicken Curry in Coconut Milk

Thai curry has an absolutely amazing combination of flavors in it, and you can make it as spicy or as mild as you would like by adding less or more of the curry. You can buy Thai curry paste in most supermarkets, or you can look in Asian markets if you can't find it anywhere else. Thai curry is great served with jasmine rice as this type of rice cools and compliments the flavors found in the curry. Also serve with a green vegetable, such as broccoli or green beans.

Red curry paste 4tsp
Boneless chicken breasts (skinned) 4
Onion, chopped 1
Sweet red pepper, cut into stips 1

Additional information

1. It's a good idea to have all of your ingredients cut up before hand, because of the quickness of cooking this dish. If you already have your ingredients cut up before hand you can just toss them in and not have to worry about burning anything

2. Since coconut milk is very high in fat, you can purchase light coconut milk as a substitute if you would prefer a lighter dish. However, if light coconut milk is unavailable, you can mix half a cup of coconut milk and half a cup of water together to make you own version of the light alternative.
