Curried chicken and noodle stir-fry

This one is an absolute staple in the Bond house.

from Chatelaine, May 2003

3-4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1 large onion
3 celery stalks
1 large red pepper
1 T vegetable oil
1 1/2 - 2 tsp curry paste
400 ml can light coconut milk
10 oz can (284 mL) undiluted chicken broth
4 cups (1 L) fine dried egg noodles
2 cups frozen peas
1/2 cup coarsely chopped fresh coriander

1. Slice chicken into 1/2 inch thick strips. Slice onion in half, then thinly slice halves. Chop celery into 1/2 inch pieces. Core and seed pepper, then slice into thin strips.

2. Heat oil in a large wide saucepan or wok set over medium-high heat. Add 1 1/2 tsp curry paste or 2 tsp for fiery kick. Stir until fragrant, 30 sec. Add chicken and onion. Stir=fry until chicken is pale golden, 2-3 min. Add celery and pepper. Stir often until tender-crisp, 2-3 min. Stir in coconut milk and broth. Using a wooden spoon, scrape up bits from pan bottom to add flavour to dish.

3. Bring to a boil, then stir in noodles. Reduce heat to medium. Cover and stir often until noodles are tender, from 5-6 minutes. Stir in peas and coriander. Remove from heat. Taste, then add salt, if needed. Serve immediately.
