1 ½ tablespoons olive oil or coconut oil
1 pound chicken breasts - sliced into 1/4” slices then 2” pieces
½ large onion, chopped
2 tablespoons red curry paste
1 orange bell pepper thinly sliced - then chopped into 2” pieces
1 red bell pepper thinly sliced - then chopped into 2" pieces
1 small zucchini, sliced
2 teaspoons freshly grated ginger
4 garlic cloves, minced
1 13.5 oz. can quality coconut milk
1 tablespoon cornstarch
1 tablespoon Asian/Thai Sweet Chili Sauce
2 tablespoons less sodium soy sauce
2 tablespoon fish sauce
2 tablespoons lime juice
1 tablespoon brown sugar
1 bay leaf
1 teaspoon dried basil
½ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon pepper
sriracha to taste

Heat oil over medium high heat in large nonstick skillet. Add chicken, onion and red curry paste and cook just until chicken is no longer pink. Add bell peppers, zucchini, ginger and garlic and sauté 1 minute.

Add half of the coconut milk. Mix remaining coconut milk with 1 tablespoon cornstarch and add to skillet along with all remaining ingredients (expect Garnishes).

Bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer for 5 minutes or until the sauce thickens and the vegetables reach desired crisp-tenderness. If you would like a thinner sauce, thin with water (I don't do this). Discard bay leaf.

Garnish with additional optional fresh basil, cilantro, lime zest, lime juice and Sriracha to taste. Serve with rice and Naan.
