Method

 
In a medium sized pot on medium-high heat, cook the red curry paste in the olive oil until fragrant, 2-3 minutes. Add in the coconut milk and allow it to come to a strong simmer.

Add in the chicken, turn the heat down to medium, place the lid on and leave to cook for 6 minutes, or until the chicken is cooked through. Add in the noodles, red pepper, snap peas, fish sauce and lime juice, stir through and remove the pot from the heat.

Serve immediately with a sprinkling of fresh basil or coriander.

Tip of the day

 
Carving meat
Always allow your roast to rest for 5 to 15 minutes before carving so that the juices can be reabsorbed and the meat presents an even surface when sliced. Use a short- or long-bladed knife, and a two-pronged carving fork with a guard. To prevent the meat from losing juice, steady it with the flat of the fork, rather than piercing.
