  • 1 tablespoon dark soy sauce

  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour

  • 1 pound skinless, boneless chicken breast halves - cut into 1 inch cubes

  • 2 tablespoons cooking oil

  • 2 tablespoons green curry paste

  • 1 teaspoon fresh ginger, peeled and finely chopped

  • 2 cups coconut milk

  • 2 tablespoons white sugar

  • 1 tablespoon fish sauce

  1. Pour 1 tablespoon soy sauce into a shallow dish. Place 1 tablespoon flour into a separate shallow dish. Toss chicken pieces in soy sauce, then in flour, coating pieces evenly.

  2. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add chicken; cook and stir until browned, about 5 minutes. Transfer chicken to a plate; set aside.
