Recipe: Green Curry Chicken Pot Pie
Active Time: 30 Minutes | Total Time: 50 Minutes | Yield: 4 Individual Pot Pies
1 cup densely packed baby spinach
1/4 cup fresh cilantro
1 chopped green onion with top
2 serrano chilies, rough chopped
2 Tbsp minced garlic, 5-6 cloves
1 Tbsp minced fresh ginger, 1 1/2-inches
zest of 2 lemons
1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
1 Tbsp cornstarch
1/2 Tbsp coriander
1 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper
1 13.5-oz can coconut milk
2 zucchini, cut in 1/2-inch dice, about 1 lb
1 1/2 lbs chicken breasts, cut in 3/4-inch dice
4 sheets phyllo dough
3 Tbsp melted butter
Special Equipment – food processor, 12” skillet, four 2-cup oven proof bowls, pastry brush
2 Place spinach, cilantro, green onion, serrano chilies, garlic, ginger, lemon zest and juice, cornstarch, coriander, cumin, salt and pepper in a food processor. Process into pulp. Add coconut milk and process.
4 Add zucchini and cook on medium heat for 5 minutes until it begins to soften. Add chicken and cook until chicken is cooked through, about 5-7 minutes more.
5 Divide green curry chicken mixture into four 2-cup oven proof bowls.
6 Brush 1 sheet of phyllo with melted butter. Crinkle into a round circle to fit one bowl leaving 1/4 inch space around the edge for venting. Repeat with the other three bowls. Bake at 400 degrees until phyllo crust is golden and crisp, about 20 minutes.
You can also toast whole spices by heating them on medium heat in a sauté pan until they become fragrant and slightly browned. Then grind them in a spice grinder. Use 1/2 tablespoon coriander seeds, 1 teaspoon cumin seeds and 1/2 teaspoon whole black peppercorns.
Don’t refreeze the leftover phyllo as it gets brittle. Store in the fridge for 1 month to use in another dish.
Serve the green curry chicken mixture on steamed rice.
- Exchange spinach for kale, swiss chard or other leafy greens.
- Exchange cilantro for parsley.
- Exchange chicken breast for chicken thigh meat or use a combination of both.
