Wine Pairings by @grapefriend

These spicy, rich Malaysian flavors are best paired with a low-alcohol, slightly sweet wine like an off-dry Riesling.

Beer Pairings

An American IPA’s maltiness combined with prominent hoppy aroma and flavor complements intensely flavorful, spiced dishes, such as curry.

What To Do:

Malaysian Red Curry Chicken Bowl - Step 1

1. Cook Rice: In a medium saucepan over high heat, bring 1¼ cups water and ¼ teaspoon salt to a boil. Stir in rice and return to a boil. Reduce heat to low, cover and simmer 15 minutes. Turn off heat and let stand, covered, for 5 minutes.

3. Cook Chicken: Rub chicken with curry paste and ½ teaspoon each salt and pepper. Heat 2 teaspoons olive oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Cook chicken 5 to 6 minutes on each side or until done. Remove from skillet and keep warm.

4. Cook Vegetables: Add 2 teaspoons olive oil to skillet. Add fajita mix and garlic. Sauté 2 minutes. Add ¼ teaspoon each salt and pepper and ¼ cup water. Cook 4 minutes longer or until vegetables are crisp-tender.

To Serve: Divide rice between two serving bowls. Top evenly with chicken, vegetables, cilantro, and scallions. Drizzle evenly with sauce. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

Pro Tip:

For added flavor, grill the chicken instead of searing in the skillet.

Sure, our TK food containers are recyclable, but we’d rather you upcycle them first. We’re partial to using them to sprout our garden seeds, but we’d love to see how creative you are! Tag us in your photos with @TerrasKitchen and #ARecipeForRealLife.
