“This is one of my favorites dish to make...and what my DH calls my "signature dish." It's easy, yummy, and healthy! I loosely based the recipe off instructions on a bottle of Thai Kitchen red curry paste. Rice expressions has an organic frozen short grain rice package that is perfect with this dish. I often sub in pan fried firm tofu instead of the chicken...and certainly you can mix up the veggies with what you have on hand. Enjoy!”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a medium saucepan combine 1/2 to Tbsp Red Curry paste (I like it spicy -- so I use 1 Tbsp) with one can of coconut milk. (I use light coconut milk to save calories/fat).
  2. Simmer for 5 minutes. Add 1/4 cup fresh basil, 1/4 cup bamboo shoots, 3 tsp Fish Sauce, 2 Tbsp brown sugar, 1/3 cup chicken stock, and 1/2 cup of your favorite mushrooms (I use the Japanese style and shitake). Simmer for 10 to 15 minutes.
  3. While you are simmering -- saute the chopped peppers (1 or 2 inch pieces) and chopped onion in a frying pan or wok lightly covered in olive oil. Fry lightly peppered chicken breasts till cooked through.
  4. Place sauteed peppers and onions on bowls of rice and spoon curry sauce over rice. You can either use curry sauce to lightly flavor rice or more as a soupy type mixture. I use short grain brown rice -- but any type is fine. Add cut chicken breast or other meat/tofu if desired.
