1. Place all of the curry paste ingredients into a food processor and mix until a smooth paste forms.
2. Use half the paste to marinate the chicken for at least 30 mins. Allowing more time gives an extra seasoned and aromatic flavour.
3. Add olive oil to a hot wok or casserole pan and fry chicken for 5 mins, then add the rest of the marinade.
4. Add the coconut milk, bring to the boil, then simmer uncovered for about 10 mins until the chicken is cooked.
5. If you do want to add more salt, you can add another ½ tablespoon of fish sauce to the dish.
6. Serve into 4 bowls and add a teaspoon of Broth of Life Dehydrated Chicken Broth on top of each.
7. Sprinkle each bowl with pistachio nuts, fresh coriander leaves, Kaffir lime leaf and red chilli to garnish.
8. Serve with organic brown rice, if desired.
