Favourite Recipe: Singapore Chicken

Here’s a recipe that I’ve been making since 1997 (originally found in a Canadian Living magazine). I’ve changed it up over time and this is what it looks like now:

      Singapore Chicken

      4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
      1 each sweet green, yellow, red pepper (thinly sliced)
      4 tsp vegetable oil
      1 tblsp minced ginger root
      1-1/3 cup chicken stock
      4 tblsp each of soy sauce & apple cider vinegar
      8 tblsp each of “Patak’s Original” curry paste (I will sometimes substitute 4 tblsp with hot to kick it up)
      4-6 tblsp cornstarch
      2 cans of mango
      3 green onions (chopped into small pieces)
      1/4 cup unsalted cashews

1. Cut chicken into 3/4″ pieces. Add oil to pan and stirfry chicken until done. Remove from pan & set aside.

2. In a small bowl, whisk together chicken stock, soy sauce, cider vinegar, curry paste, & cornstarch.

4. Sprinkle with cashews which have been roasted in 350F oven for 3 minutes.

Finishing touch with cashews....trust me.  It's not the same without them!

I was wondering why it didn’t look as colourful as usual…..then I looked back at the photos and realized I’d used what peppers were in the fridge. Orange- not the usual red. Same taste but not as visually interesting. It all ends up in the belly though 😉
Note: Secret ingredient “Patak’s Original” curry paste can be purchased at most grocery stores in the same aisle as soy sauce.
