  • 1
    vegetable oil
  • 1
    sesame oil
  • 8
    chicken thighs, bone-in and skin on
  • 1
    generous tablespoon yellow Thai curry paste
  • 3
    stem ginger, finely grated

    tin coconut milk
  • 1

  • a spritz of fresh lemon juice

In a large pan, heat the vegetable and sesame oil. Season the chicken with salt and pepper and brown, skin side down first. Turn over and brown on the other side as well. Drain off most of the rendered down oil. Add the curry paste and grated ginger. Pour in the stock and coconut cream. Add the lemon grass, cover with a lid or foil and simmer for 35 – 40 minutes on a low heat. Squeeze in the lemon juice and check that the seasoning is well balanced.

Serve with steamed basmati rice, blanched sugar snaps and baby corn. If you like a bit heat, scatter over some extra chilli.

Serves 4-6.
