Rated as 4.5 out of 5 Stars

"This is a coconut-based curry that has a nice spicy kick. Non-traditional vegetables add great texture and flavor to an already fantastic flavor. Best served with rinsed and steamed basmati rice."

  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 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 the curry mixture; simmer until potatoes are soft, about 10 minutes more.


  • Cook's Notes:
  • Panang curry paste and kaffir 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.
