1. Heat the oil in a wok or large frying pan. Add the green curry paste and sugar and cook over a fairly high heat for about a minute, stirring with the lemongrass, if using. Reduce the heat slightly and stir in the chicken pieces and lime leaves or zest until coated in the paste. Add the coconut milk, fish sauce or soy sauce and bring to a simmer, cooking for 25-30 minutes until thickened slightly. Stir in the coriander and lime juice. Check for seasoning, adding more fish sauce or soy sauce if needed.
2. The curry is now best left to sit for a few minutes so the sauce becomes creamier. You will also taste the true flavors of the curry paste ingredients when it's slightly cooler. Serve with lots of fragrant Thai jasmine rice.

freshdon1863The family love this !3y ago
tlbarker72We made this tonight and it is simply delicious! The sauce is very light and not overwhelming. I only used about a tablespoon of the green curry paste and will double it next time I make this. I could not find lemongrass at the store, so I used lemongrass paste and it worked just fine. I made jasmine rice to go with the curry and I must say this is the best meal I have eaten in a long time! Thanks for an excellent recipe!3y ago
RachWatchYummy! We add thinly sliced carrots, courgette (zucchini) and julienne peppers. Lately also add bamboo shoots. Easy to follow recipe. Thanks for sharing. A firm and regular favourite in our house!!3y ago
Audreyjones25Absolutely fantastic!! Wow!!! I used lemongrass paste and it was delicious, also added snow peas, bean sprouts and mushrooms to bulk it up. So easy to make! This is my new exotic go to recipe! Delicate sauce, perfect to put on basmati rice3y ago
cjmonteThis turned out perfect. As mentioned, it is 400 ml or 1 can of coconut milk. I added lots of veggies and served over pad Thai noodles.3y ago

8WhitePawsI tried this last night and it was nice. The only thing I didn't really like was that it was quite runny/watery and not very creamy or saucy. Will try again with my own little adaptations :-)4y ago
