With my original meal plan going out of the window today and with the help of the BBC good food guide I settled on this little one pot dish instead. With a park play date, school production rehearsal and a lazy pre-teen refusing to walk or ride to school this week I needed something fairly simple. I knew I had some chicken in the freezer and Thai green paste left from another recipe, so this is where I ended up. One pot – two steps – three feed children and a happy daddy!
Heat the oven to 180, then using my roasting tray on the hob, I heated some oil and chucked in the onion for a few minutes, I then added the chicken and green Green Thai Curry Paste and cooked for another 3 or 4 minutes, stirring to coat the chicken and onion.
I chucked the peppers, rice, lime zest and juice, coconut milk and 250ml boiling water. I brought the whole mixture to the boil and covered with tin foil and chucked in the oven for about 20 minutes, until the rice was fluffy. I then put the coriander over and served.
