Quick and healthy Thai red curry...

Updated: Aug 14, 2020

Ingredients (serves 2)

  • 500g chicken breast, cut into thin slices

  • 1 tablespoon red curry paste. This amount may vary depending on the strength of paste and your spice preference. If unsure, always add less and taste after last step before adding more. After sauce has reduced, it will become spicier!
