Ingredients

  • 1 Tbsp green curry paste (more if desired)
  • 2 boneless, skinless medium chicken breasts (about 4 oz each), chopped into 1-inch chunks
  • 1/2 cup carrots, peeled and diced
  • 12 oz shiitake mushrooms, washed very well and sliced
  • 1 medium yellow onion, sliced
  • 1 cup Thai eggplant, sliced and cut into quarters
  • 1/2 cup organic corn kernels, cut off cooked cob, or frozen and de-thawed
  • 1 to 1 1/2 Tbsp fish sauce (less if brand is very pungent)
  • 1 (13 oz) can coconut milk
  • 1 green chile, sliced (optional—this will make the dish very spicy)
  • 2 cups brown rice, short- or medium-grain, cooked

Directions

  1. In a soup pot, heat oil and curry paste on high until paste bubbles.
  2. Add chicken, carrots, mushrooms, onion, eggplant, corn, and fish sauce. Stir for about 1 minute and then add coconut milk.
  3. Lower heat to medium and cook for about 6 minutes, or until chicken is completely cooked through. (If you prefer a thicker curry, let it reduce for another couple of minutes.)
  4. Add green chile, if using. Serve over brown rice.
