  • Combine water and salt in a saucepan; bring to a boil. Stir in jasmine rice. Reduce heat to low and cover; cook until rice absorbs the water, about 15 minutes.

  • Mix chicken thighs with curry paste.

  • Heat peanut oil in a wok or large skillet until shimmering. Add remaining 1 tablespoon ginger, chiles, shallot, and minced garlic; cook and stir until beginning to color and soften, 2 to 3 minutes. Stir in chicken and cook until no longer pink, 3 to 4 minutes. Stir in bok choy and shiitake mushrooms; cook for 3 to 4 minutes.

  • Ladle 1 cup chicken broth mixture into a bowl; whisk in cornstarch.

  • Pour chicken broth-cornstarch mixture into the wok. Stir in fish sauce, soy sauce, and brown sugar. Reduce heat to low and simmer until sauce thickens, 1 to 2 minutes. Thin sauce with more chicken broth if it appears too thick. Squeeze lime juice into the sauce.

  • Serve chicken over rice, garnished with cilantro and Thai basil.

Delicious recipe! I substituted the mushrooms for water chestnuts and substituted star anise for all spice. It was beautiful but forgot to take the pic. Read More
