14th March

So after a prolonged hiatus, I’m finally getting up a post!  It’s been a little crazy, so this lazy curry recipe that I’ve made a couple of times in the interim seems highly appropriate.  It’s a great low cost alternative to take-out that takes less time than the delivery boy.

Here is what you’ll need:

  • 6 scallions
  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 1 lb boneless chicken breasts
  • 3/4 cup coconut cream
  • 3 tbsp Thai green curry paste
  • 3 tbsp chopped cilantro
  • Noodles, rice, or (my personal preference quinoa)


As your rice or noodles finish cooking: Just cut the scallions in to approximately half inch slices and cube the chicken.  Heat the oil in a pan throw in the scallions and chicken for about 3 to 4 minutes until the chicken is browned.  If you like heat, add a couple Thai chilies in with the scallions and chicken.  Stir in the coconut cream and curry paste and cook for another five minutes or so.  Turn off the heat and stir in the chopped cilantro.

Now I like quinoa, but rice or noodle are a great pairing as well.   But whatever you use, in 15 minutes you’ll have a meal as good as your usual Thai take-out, only hotter and fresher.
