Chef Ray – Coconut Peanut Chicken Curry

I whipped this together easily one night whilst visiting my brother and his wife. Delicious, healthy, easy and qwik to make.

  • 2 tablespoons red curry paste
  • 2 tablespoons no-added-salt, no-added-sugar peanut butter

  • ½ a 400ml can of reduced-fat coconut milk
  • courgettes, diced
  • 1 cup green beans, topped and tailed
  • 4 cups baby spinach leaves
  • ¾ cup frozen peas
  • ⅔ cup canned no-added-salt lentils, rinsed and drained
  • 2x 250g pouches ready-steamed brown rice, to serve
  • coriander leaves, to serve
  1. Combine red curry paste and peanut butter and mix well. Set aside.
  2. Heat a heavy-based pan to medium high heat and spray with oil. Add chicken and cook, stirring, for 5 minutes. Add curry paste mixture and stir to combine. Add coconut milk and bring to a simmer.
  3. Add courgettes and beans and cook, stirring, for 5-10 minutes, until liquid is reduced and chicken is cooked through. Add spinach leaves and peas and cook another minute.
  4. Prepare rice according to packet instructions. Serve curry with rice, topped with coriander leaves.

Although I’m not a qualified chef I do like to pretend I’m on Master Chef. I source the recipes from the stated source (not sauce) and make them taking the photo of the meal I produce for myself.
