How to make it

  • Cut the meat into large bite-sized pieces; reserve.
  • In a medium saucepan, warm the coconut cream over medium heat until it boils gently. Adjust heat to maintain a gentle boil and cook for 6-8 minutes, stirring occasionally. The coconut cream should become fragrant as it cooks. When tiny pools of oil glisten on the surface, add the curry paste and stir to dissolve. Continue cooking for 1-2 minutes.
  • Add the chicken pieces; stir to coat evenly. Continue cooking for about 2 more minutes. Increase heat and add the coconut milk, yams, fish sauce, sugar, and salt; stir well.
  • Stir in the cilantro and chiles. Adjust heat to maintain an active gentle boil; cook for 8-10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Taste and adjust the seasoning with more fish sauce, sugar, or curry paste. When the chicken is done and the yams are tender, remove from the heat - - if it's too hot, you can use yogurt to cut the heat a bit.
  • at this point, transfer to a serving bowl. Serve with white rice
  • Garnish with additional basil and cilantro leaves.

    This was just excellent. It was easy to make and delicious. We live in a place with no Thai food available anywhere ever. This was perfect.

    I love the combination of chicken, yams, and coconut milk. I do a lot of cooking with coconut milk, including a very tasty banana fritter batter with rice flour, coconut milk, shredded coconut, and sesame seeds. Where in the process does the eggplant figure in?

    I also love coconut milk curries. I've been experimenting with coconut milk in other dishes, with great results (like coconut milk succotash).
    I'm a vegetarian, but I think this recipe will be great with chicken substitute.
