Utensils

Zester
Pot with Lid

Instructions

Cook the Rice
1
  • Pour 300ml cold salted water (double for 4p) into a medium pot with a tight-fitting lid. 
  • Stir in the rice and bring to the boil.
  • Once boiling, lower the heat to medium and cover with the lid.
  • Cook for 12 mins then remove the pot from the heat.
  • Keep covered for another 12 mins or until ready to serve (the rice will continue to cook in its own steam).
Prep Your Veg
2
  • Meanwhile, trim the courgette and chop into 1cm cubes.
  • Halve, peel and thinly slice the onion.
  • Halve the chilli lengthways, deseed and thinly slice.
  • Zest and halve the lime.
Start the Curry
3
  • Place a large pan over medium-high heat with a drizzle of oil.
  • Once hot, fry the chicken until starting to brown, 3-4 mins.
  • Once browned, add the onion and courgette and fry for another 2 mins. IMPORTANT: Wash hands and equipment after handling raw chicken and its packaging.

TIP: Notice a stronger smell from your chicken? Don’t worry, this is normal due to packaging used to keep it fresh. It will still taste delicious once cooked!

Simmer the Sauce
4
  • Add the Thai style spice mix, red Thai paste and half the chilli to the pan. You can use less chilli if you don't like spice—or more if you do.
  • Cook together until fragrant, 30 secs.
  • Stir in the coconut milk.
  • Simmer until the chicken is cooked through and the veg is tender, 8-10 mins. IMPORTANT: Chicken is cooked when no longer pink in the middle.
Finishing Touches
5
  • Add a squeeze of lime juice to your curry.
  • Season to taste with salt, pepper and more lime juice if desired.
  • Stir the lime zest through the rice, fluffing it up as you go.

TIP: Loosen the curry with a splash of water if you feel it's too thick.

Garnish and Serve
6
  • Serve the lime rice in bowls topped with the chicken curry.
  • Finish with a sprinkling of as much of the remaining chopped chilli as you like.
