  • 2 lbs. of boneless chicken breast, sliced in bite size pieces

  • 1 cup of Thai red curry paste

  • 5 oz. of bamboo shoots with the liquid

  • 1 can of Thai coconut milk, 13.66 oz.

  • 1 can of Thai coconut cream, 13.66 oz.

  • 3 cups of homemade chicken broth or water

  • 6 oz. of fresh mushrooms, I used some shitake, king oysters and oyster mushroom blend

  • 4 cloves of garlic, chopped

  • 1 inch of fresh ginger, finely chopped

  • 2 medium size carrots, sliced in thin rounds

  • 1/2 cup of cilantro, stems and leaves separated

  • 3 oz. of snow peas

  • 1 cup of fresh bean shoots

  • 1 tbsp. of sea salt

  • 1 tsp. of red chili flakes

  • 1 lime zest and juice

  • 1 tbsp. of finely chopped lemon grass

  • 2 tbsp. of vegetable oil

  • 2 cups of cooked rice for serving

Let’s make it

  • In a Dutch oven preheat the oil and fry garlic, ginger and lemon grass for a couple of minutes until it’s fragrant.
  • Add chicken and fry until you get a few brown spots. That gives some great additional flavor.
  • Add curry paste, chicken broth or water, mushrooms, carrots, cilantro stems (hold on on the leaves), coconut milk and coconut cream, bamboo shoots, salt, pepper and lime zest. Cook for 15 min on medium low heat.
  • Add snow peas, bean sprouts, lime juice and cook for additional 2-3 min.
  • Serve with or over cooked or steamed rice and some cilantro leaves on the top.
  • Enjoy!
