Expert Tips

Instead of takeout, make this dish with global flavors in your own kitchen. If you like your Thai food hot, just add another chile or two.

Directions

  • 1 In nonstick wok or 12-inch skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add chicken; cook and stir 2 to 3 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink in center. Add lime peel, gingerroot, garlic, chiles and cilantro; cook and stir 1 minute.
  • 2 Pour coconut milk over chicken. Stir in brown sugar, salt, soy sauce, peas and bell pepper. Reduce heat to medium. Simmer uncovered 3 to 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, until vegetables are crisp-tender. Stir in tomato.
  • 3 Spoon into shallow serving bowls; top with basil. Serve with rice.
