Chicken Massaman Curry

This fabulous post is being brought to you by my son, Zac! It is so fun because he will instant message me on Facebook and tell me about new food ideas that he has found or he has tried in the past. Sometimes, I haven’t even heard about some of the ingredients and I feel like I’m on the TV show “Chopped”!
Zac has seriously broaden my “culinary box” by introducing me to things that I would never think about trying. I really love this recipe! The flavor is rich but not so different that the kids won’t like it.

3 Tablespoons curry paste
1 slice ginger, minced
1 1/4 pounds skinless, boneless chicken breast, cubed
3 Tablespoons brown sugar
3 Tablespoons fish sauce
3 Tablespoons tamarind paste
1/3 cup peanut butter
3 cups potatoes, cubed
1 (13.5 ounce) can coconut milk
3 Tablespoons fresh lime juice

  • Heat vegetable oil in a large pan over medium heat. Stir in curry paste and minced ginger; cook and stir for about 2 minutes. Stir in the cubed chicken, and cook until the pieces turn white on the outside, about 3 minutes.
