- In a non-stick skillet, heat 5 mL (1 tsp) oil over high heat. Add chicken strips and cook for 5 to 6 minutes, or until golden on all sides. Remove from pan and reserve.
- Pour remaining oil into the same skillet and heat at medium-high. Add carrots and green peppers, and cook for 3 minutes. Add curry paste and cook, stirring, for 1 minute or until the ingredients are well blended.
- Return chicken to skillet. Add broth, garlic and black pepper, and bring mixture to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and allow to simmer for 5 to 6 minutes, or until chicken is cooked and vegetables are tender-crisp.
- Blend water and cornstarch in a small bowl. Stir into chicken mixture and cook for 1 to 2 minutes, or until sauce thickens.
Accompaniment: Serve with rice or rice noodles. For a more exotic flavour, cook the rice in low-fat coconut milk.
