Wednesdays with Donna Hay is BACK!! At least with two of us. We just couldn’t go any longer with out cooking with Donna Hay! Since I had already planned to make one of Donna’s Asian style dishes we decided to start with that! A good way to get back into the swing of things.
Unlike many of Donna’s dishes this one is not very colorful. It is her Coconut Chicken Curry and while quite tasty it is not a repeat.
Chicken breasts are simmered in a sauce of coconut milk, green curry paste, Kaffier lime leaves, onions, lemon grass, and shredded ginger. Fresh basil and coriander are added in at the end.
The sauce is really good. The chicken…not so much. I think it would have been much tastier if the chicken had been seasoned and browned before it went into the sauce. So, if I make it again, that is what i will do.
The recipe is from Donna’s the new cook (page 120)
