Slow Cooker Low Fat Thai Green Curry

This recipe is simple to make and delicious. Use normal coconut milk if you are want a more luxurious creamy curry. It is medium hot in spice, add chillies if you want to increase the heat, I like the Very Lazy Chillies in a jar which are simple to add at the end of cooking if you want it spicier. 

Cooking for 8 hours in a slow cooker is recommended as the chicken will be beautiful and tender. Use chicken thighs and left over vegetables for a more economical dish.

You can also make this dish in one pot on the stove if you do not have a slow cooker. Just follow the stages as below but simmer gently for thirty minutes until the chicken is cooked through.

Ingredients

4 chicken breasts or thighs skinned and diced
1 (220g) tin sliced water chestnuts, drained
1 (225g) tin bamboo shoots, drained and sliced.
50g cooked peas
1 pepper, chopped
1/2 jar of Blue Dragon green curry paste (or similar) 

1 (400 ml) large tin of low fat coconut milk
chopped fresh basil for garnish




Method

Brown the chicken in a little oil in a pan.
Add the thai curry paste and fry for a minute or two.
Add the jar of coconut milk, peas, water chestnuts, bamboo shoots and peppers.
Cook for 8 hours on Low or 4 hours on high.
Mix in the peas.
Add basil to garnish.
Serve with fragrant thai or basmati rice.
