Thai Chicken Coconut Curry

This is kind of a concotion that started off as one recipe, got a bunch of stuff added to it, and it sort of evolved.

I took two large chicken breasts, and sliced them diagonally about 1/4 -1/2 inch wide. Then I cut them in half the long way to make long strips. Saute in about 1 tbsp oil in a medium hot skillet until almost cooked through.

Add 1 clove minced garlic, 1 tsp fish sauce and 1-2 tsp thai green chile paste (look in your asian foods section). Stir in well. I had a can of coconut milk hidden in the pantry, so I poured that in. Add 3-4 cups chopped green cabbage. Let that simmer down until slightly thickened. Take out some of the liquid, cool down, and add in 2-3 tbsp cornstarch. Mix together and add back into the curry.

Add in 1/2 cup frozen peas, and 1 chopped tomato. Heat through and serve over rice. Add soy sauce to taste.

This is very creamy, and you really will need the soy sauce. I added a little lemon juice to mine and it was yummy. This would be wonderful with a handful of chopped fresh cilantro and sliced green onions added as well.

Wow, that looks SO good!!! Great job on the picture too, with the blue china and pretty chopsticks and everything. I think I'm in the mood for Asian/Thai food now!
