Panang Curry with Chicken

Tonight I had a craving for panang curry. I went to Trader Joe’s and got 2 bottles of panang curry sauce, a red pepper and some cooked chicken breast. I put the sauce, chicken, diced red pepper and a big handful of frozen peas into the pan. After simmering a few minutes I tasted my creation. It was a little too spicy and a little too salty. So, I added 2 tablespoons of sugar, 2 tablespoons creamy peanut butter and about 1/4 cup cream of coconut. Wow! It was perfect. Made a little rice and the wife, boy and I were very happy. Total cooking time: 15 minutes. BSR :]

  • This sounds great. Super easy, too. I bet my kids would eat this, too, especially if I did the red peppers on the side for me and Mom. Thanks.

  • Doctor…

    My mom and I both looked at Trader Joe’s for a Panang Curry sauce. and didn’t find any. They had three or four curry sauces, but none labeled as Panang. Can you provide more details on the sauce you used? Thanks.

  • I believe the exact name is Trader Joe’s Thai Yellow Curry Sauce. I’m looking forward to trying the other “colors.” mmm…
