Thai-style Jersey Royals with Chicken

La méthode

Put the Jersey Royals into a large, deep frying pan or wok with the spring onions, vegetable stock, coconut milk, chilli, lemongrass and curry paste. Bring to the boil, then cover and reduce the heat. Simmer for 15 minutes.
 
Add the chicken and green beans to the pan and cook gently for another 15-minutes, until tender.
 
Stir in the coriander and season to taste with a little salt and black pepper. Serve in warmed bowls.
 
Tip:  You could make this recipe with fish instead of chicken - salmon would be delicious. Just add 4 skinless, boneless salmon fillets to the pan when the potatoes are tender and cook, covered, for 10-12 minutes.
