Ingredients Nutrition


  1. So its really easy to make this, seriously. Saute the garlic lightly in a good shwack of oil but don't allow it to brown too heavily so watch the heat. throw in the chicken which should be cut into longer chunks or strips.
  2. Cook the chicken throuroughly, make sure its cooked properly cos this dish will be on your plate shortly.
  3. Add the curry paste and let it sizzle for a minute to allow the flavours to unlock, it responds really well to heat and you will be able to smell it doing just this.
  4. stir through the coconut milk and add the sugar to taste, a good red curry needs sweetness to balance the heat.
  5. also season with salt and a good grind of pepper.
  6. while this is simmering throw the slices of white bread under the grill and brown them up. once done, slice longways into soldiers.
  7. use a nice deep bowl for this one, the soldiers are for mopping up the sauce (in this case the bread is your rice). Arrange the toast longways into the bowl and garnish the centre with a good sprig of coriander.
  8. voila' you have 12 minute curry with toast soldiers ready to be consumed greedily on the sofa, or with friends as a rich and hearty appetiser.
