Chicken Curry Rice by acobus Spades Visit Thread
Thanks to everyone who gave me tips in this thread, I bring you: Chicken Curry with Rice.


2 tablespoons canola or peanut oil (I used Canola)
1 onion—finely chopped
2 teaspoons Thai red curry paste
2 cloves garlic—finely chopped
1 cup coconut milk
1 cup chicken stock
2 tablespoons fish sauce
1 tablespoon brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 zucchini (courgette)—sliced into thin rounds
1 red pepper (capsicum)—julienned
1 cup Minute-Rice
12 oz (360g) uncooked skinless chicken breast fillets—cut into bite-sized pieces
2 tablespoons cornstarch (cornflour) mixed to a paste with 2 tablespoons water
2 tablespoons lemon juice
4 large fresh basil leaves—finely sliced

1. Cut up the onions, zucchini, red pepper, and mince the garlic first. This will make things easier, especially for someone like me who has limited room to work with (one tiny plastic cutting board )

2. Heat the oil in a large sauce pan over medium heat. I used my trusty cast iron skillet.

3. Add the onions and sautee for about five minutes until they start to get soft.

4. Add the curry paste and garlic, stir until it's evenly distributed and cook for about a minute. I found that two teaspoons of curry made this dish plenty spicy; if you've got a weak tongue, add less. Also, watch out for the fumes that will BURN THE FUCK OUT OF YOUR EYES

5. Add the coconut milk, chicken stock, fish sauce, sugar and salt, and bring it to a boil.

6. Add the zucchini and red pepper, cover and simmer for about 12 minutes. In the meantime, cook your rice. I used instant rice, but you can use any type you want.

7. After the 12 minutes, add the chicken, cover, and cook for another 8 minutes. In the meantime, make the cornstarch paste by mixing two tablespoons of water with two tablespoons of cornstarch until smooth. Once 8 minutes are about up, chop up your basil.

8. After the 8 minutes, add the cornstarch mixture and stir until the curry thickens. Add the lemon juice and basil and stir.

9. Serve on a bed of rice.

Best goddamn meal I've had all year. Thanks Goons with Spoons!
