Green Curry Chicken with Brown Rice

A couple of days ago one of my daughters came to make some freezer meals. This is one of the meals that she made. She let us have some too. It is always fun to have someone else to make your dinner. We enjoyed her company as well. It is always a treat to have our family come home.

This is a yummy meal. That we enjoyed for dinner. :) Thanks to my sweet daughter.

Ingredients: Serves 3-4
4 green onion washed and chopped up
1/2 of a small can of green chilies
1 small piece of ginger peeled
2 cloves of garlic
1 1/2 tsp fish sauce
nice handful of fresh cilantro
3 T water
2 T grapeseed oil
4 boneless chicken breasts cut in cubes
1 green pepper. sliced in thin pieces
1 can of coconut milk
salt and pepper to taste
3 C cooked brown rice

1. Place in blender or food processor green onions, chilies, ginger, garlic, fish sauce, and water. Blend until it turns into a nice smooth paste.
2. Heat  1 T of the oil on medium heat. Brown chicken on both sides. Take out of the pan and place in dish.
3. Heat 1 T oil and cook the peppers for a couple minutes. Then stir in the paste. Stir and fry together a couple of minutes. The mixture should thicken up.
4. Pour the chicken back in along with the coconut milk. Bring the mixture to a boil. Turn down the heat. Put a lid over the skillet. Allow some space for a little air to escape. Simmer for 10 min.
