Thai Pineapple Chicken Curry

Here's another recipe adapted from Quick & Easy Thai Cuisine Lemon Grass Cookbook. I like these simple ones that require no frying and barely any prep work. With rice, It's a simple & quick dinner.

Ingredients:

  • 14 ounce can coconut milk
  • 1 cup crushed canned pineapple
  • 2 - 3 tablespoons red curry paste
  • 1/4 cup fish sauce (this can be reduced and I will probably use less next time)
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 large chicken breast or 2 chicken thighs, cubed (recipe calls for 1/2 pound shrimp, shelled and deveined)
Method:

Combine all ingredients except chicken and bring to a boil. Add Chicken and cook until done and desired consistency. Serve with rice or noodles & enjoy!

That's so simple and sounds super-delish! I use only about 1 tsp of fish sauce and find that too fishy sometimes! Could never do 1/4 cup :)

~ Thanks, everyone :)

~ I know what you mean, Vani, I thought the 1/4 cup might be too much, and I tend to cut it down in all recipes :)

~ Thanks, Cilantro... I had to practice for a lot of years before I was happy with the roti's I made :)
