Pad Prik King

One of my favorite Thai dishes is a recipe called Pad Prik King. You can use any kind of meat or do it vegetarian with tofu or a blend of additional vegetables. Here I used chicken from Windy Meadows Family Farm.

The recipe below I found doing a Google search as I was looking for something to do with a bag of green beans I bought at the Coppell Farmer’s Market yesterday. A couple recipes called for a Pad Prik King pre-made sauce. I eventually found a recipe where I made some minor changes making it work with ingredients I already had. Best of all it turned out perfect.

Pad Prik King
Serves 4

1 lb boneless, skinless chicken cut into bit-sized pieces
2 cups green beans
2 tablespoons sesame oil
2 tablespoons curry paste (yellow or red)
1 cup water
2 teaspoons sugar
1/2 teaspoon fish sauce
2 teaspoons julienned kaffir lime leaves

Heat the oil in a wok and add curry paste. Let the paste cook for about 2 minutes to bring out the flavor and add the chicken cooking for 5 minutes on medium-high heat stirring often. Add green beans and cook for 2 minutes. Add water, sugar and fish sauce and let it all cook for another 3 minutes and add kaffir lime leaves at the end cooking for another minute.

Serve with rice.
