Red Curry with Chicken

Dan and I always joke that curry to us is like kraft dinner for most families. It's that meal that when you are super busy and you need to make something quick and easy. It is an easy meal and we make it when we don't really feel like cooking much. Huge comfort food right here. haha.
Here is what you will need
-2 chicken breasts, cut into bite size pieces
-50 g of red curry paste
-one can of coconut milk
-2 tbsp oil
-2 tbsp fish sauce
-fresh basil leaves
-2tbsps of sugar
-chili flakes, or fresh chilies
- LOTS OF VEGGIES( we normally use the bag of frozen veggies because its our lazy day food. Also I normally add some broccoli and mushrooms)
-white rice

-Put your oil and curry paste into the frying pan and let it heat up. Stir a bit. Add the coconut milk, fish sauce and your chicken. Let it simmer and cook your chicken on medium high heat.
-Once you think your chicken is almost cooked through add your broccoli.
-Cut open a piece of chicken to see if it is cooked all the way through. If yes, add the rest of your veggies, the chilies, sugar and the basil leaves. Cook until the veggies are ready. Do not over cook the chicken.
To eat pour the curry over cooked white rice. Voila. Easy and yummmmmy.

enjoy! xo
