Directions

Heat a wok over high heat. When the wok begins to smoke, add 1 tablespoon of the peanut oil. Add the carrots and green beans and stir-fry for 1 minute. Splash in 2 tablespoons stock to facilitate cooking and stir-fry for another minute. Transfer to a plate and set aside.

Wipe the wok dry and return to the heat. When the wok is hot, add the remaining 2 tablespoons peanut oil. Add the garlic, ginger and half the chiles and stir-fry for less than 1 minute. Add the curry paste and stir-fry for 1 to 2 minutes. Add the kaffir lime leaves and chicken and stir-fry until the chicken has browned, 2 to 3 minutes. Add the coconut milk and stir-fry for 1 minute. Stir in the remaining 1/4 cup stock, the shiitake mushrooms, scallion light parts, bean sprouts and fish sauce and cook until the chicken has cooked through, 1 to 2 minutes more. Add the green beans and carrots back in and season with salt and white pepper. Transfer to a serving plate and garnish with the remaining chilies, some bean sprouts, the scallion greens and cilantro.

    Great recipe. Shrimp work well instead of chicken. No mushrooms at that point.

    LOVED it! So easy and flavor was outstanding. I substituted 1/2 tsp finely grated lime rind for the Kaffir lime leaves as I couldn't find them and used sugar snap peas in place of the green beans. Will be making this on a regular basis!
