Step 2 - Prep

Now that you're feeling great about your healthy lifestyle choices, it's time to sharpen those knives, grab the cutting board & get to work. Spend the next 10-15 minutes cutting all of the veggies, starting the rice cooker & prepping the chicken by cutting it into bite size pieces.

Thai Tip: One of my favorite things about Thailand is that we enjoyed about 99% of all meals without a fork because everything is prepared/cut so that you do not need one. This same principle is now applied to our cooking in the States because we want everyone to enjoy our cooking with only a fork and/or spoon.

Step 3: Fire it Up

Grab a skillet (for the chicken) and pot (for the soup), pour some olive oil, swirl it to coat the pan/pot & wait for it to get hot. In the skillet, cook your chicken until it is beautifully cooked like in the picture above.

In the pot, add your:

  1. Green/Red Peppers
  2. Garlic
  3. Ginger
  4. Jalapeño Seeds
  5. Mushrooms
  6. Lemongrass

Cook these ingredients for approximately 3 minutes stirring occasionally then add the green curry paste and continue to cook for 1 minute.

Thai Tip: If you have access to an international store, Bird's Eye Chilies are the authentic substitute for Jalapeño seed to make sure that the meal is "pet maak" (very spicy).

Step 4: Get Simmering

Once the veggies have been thoroughly cooked in Step 3, it's time to add the chicken broth, coconut milk, fish sauce & sugar. Bring the concoction to a boil, reduce heat to low, cover & simmer for 10 minutes

Step 5: Finishing Touches

Once the soup has simmered for 10 minutes, add your pre-cooked chicken to the pan, cook for an additional 1 minute & discard the lemongrass. Now it's time to add the finishing touches and "plate" your first homemade taste of Thailand. Add the desired amount of green onion, cilantro & lime juice. Then sit back, relax & proudly look at the finished product.

Enjoy!
