  • 1 pound of boneless chicken breasts
  • 3 tablespoons of Pilippo Berio Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 1 teaspoon of Kikkoman Lite Soy Sauce
  • 1/2 a package of A Taste of Thai Red Curry Paste -- this is customizable depending upon how hot you like it! I've tried the entire package and that a tad bit hot for the hubby.
  • One 13.5 fl. oz. can of Hokan Coconut Milk
  • One 8 oz. can of LaChoy Fancy Bamboo Shoots -- drained
  • One -half package of Birds Eye Deluxe Baby Vegetables Baby Broccoli Mix -- broccoli florets, edamame, Parisian carrots, & sliced water chestnuts

  • 1 bag of Success Jasmin Rice - Thai Fragrant Rice - 10 minute Boil-in-Bag

Instructions
  1. Heat a large skillet with the olive oil on medium heat.
  2. Cut the chicken into strips. I like it 1/2 inch x 2 inches.
  3. Add the chicken to the hot olive oil and cook for about 10 minutes, stirring to cook on both sides.
  4. When the chicken is white, season with the garlic salt and add the coconut milk and A Taste of Thai Red Curry Paste, stirring until the curry is distributed.
  5. Add the soy sauce, bamboo shoots, and vegetables.
  6. Turn the heat down a bit and continue to simmer.
  7. Add the rice to boiling water. You'll want to time it to be ready when your curry is ready.
  8. Add the Equal to the curry and stir well.
  9. When you rice is ready, your curry should be ready.
  10. I like to serve my curry in a flat soup bowl. In the middle of the bowl, place several tablespoons of the rice. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
