  • 2 tablespoons cooking oil

  • 3 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves, cut into 1-inch strips

  • 1 (14 ounce) can coconut milk

  • 2 tablespoons Panang-style red curry paste

  • 1 russet potato, cut into 1/2-inch cubes

  • 2 cups frozen peas and carrots

  • 2 tablespoons fish sauce

  • 1 tablespoon white sugar

  • 10 makrut lime leaves, thinly sliced


  1. Heat oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add chicken breast; cook just until no longer pink in the center; about 3 minutes. Transfer chicken to a plate.

  2. Whisk coconut milk and curry paste together in a skillet until combined. Add potato; simmer until potatoes begin to soften, about 10 minutes. Stir cooked chicken, peas and carrots, fish sauce, sugar, and lime leaves into curry mixture; simmer until potatoes are soft, about 10 minutes more.


Panang curry paste and lime leaves can be found in most Asian groceries and some big box stores. Fish sauce is available in the Asian section of most supermarkets.

This curry is best served with rinsed and steamed basmati rice.
