I love Thai food and this is usually what I order if we're out at a Thai restaurant. I'm certainly a novice at cooking it, but this is one recipe that is fairly easy to make and the ingredients aren't too hard to find.
this is my little helper:)
1 pkg. jasmine rice
1 lb. chicken breasts, or thighs
2 T. cooking oil, like canola or the equivalent
one large onion, quartered and sliced
2 T. fish sauce
1/2 can masaman curry paste
1 can coconut milk
salt to taste
avacado, pitted and chopped or sliced
Cook rice according to package directions.
Meanwhile, cut up chicken into 1-2 inch pieces and saute with onions in preheated oil and fish sauce, until chicken is cooked through.
Stir in curry paste and coconut milk and simmer just long enough to heat the sauce and season the chicken, approx. 5 minutes.
Serve chicken over rice with avacado and cashew nuts sprinkled over the top.
