Chicken and vegetables in coconut milk

100g carrots
55g courgette
100g green beans
5-6 broccoli florets
1 chicken breast
1 tbsp sunflower oil
1 garlic clove, finely chopped
½ teaspoon ground ginger
200ml coconut milk
1 tbsp lemon juice
Pinch of salt and soft brown sugar
100ml water
3-4 fresh coriander leaves, chopped

Wash the vegetables and peel the carrots. Cut the courgette and crrots into rounds. Trim the green beans and cut them into pieces. Roughly chop the broccoli florets and cut the chicken breast into pieces.

Heat the sunflower oil over a medium heat in a large, heavy-based saucepan and cook the chicken pieces until golden brown.

Add the garlic and ginger and continue cooking for 1 minute, without browning too much.

Add the vegetables, coconut milk, lemon juice, salt, brown sugar and water and bring to the boil. Cover and simmer over a low heat for 15 minutes.

Remove from the heat, add the coriander and blend until you have a course puree.

Level of Difficulty

Is Bébé not wild about coconut milk? Replace it with crème fraiche and leave out the lemon juice. The crème fraiche already has the slightly acidic note this dish calls for.
