Chicken sweet potato curry

This is a really delicious curry and the sweet potatoes, ginger and coconut milk give it a distinct Thai flavour. If you are a lover of Oriental flavours this one is for you. Serve it with jasmine rice for a little extra fragrance. It can also be served with noodles but the doesn’t do the sauce justice. (For 4 people)

What you need

500g skinless chicken breasts sliced
1 teaspoon crushed garlic
2 tablespoons red Thai curry paste
6cm piece fresh ginger grated
1 tablespoon lemon juice
250g sweet potatoes diced
500ml coconut milk
½ tin chopped peeled tomatoes
Palm of chopped coriander

The process

In a wok or large pan heat a little oil, add the chicken sliced and stir fry for 4 or 5 minutes until the chicken is white.

Now add the curry paste, garlic, ginger and lemon juice and stir fry for a minute or so to combine the flavours.

Add the sweet potato pieces and coconut milk, bring to the boil, reduce to a medium heat and simmer for 15 minutes.

Add the tomatoes and simmer for a further 5 minutes.

The sauce should be thick and reduced and smell incredible.

Serve immediately.
