    2. Heat oil and brown the chicken. Once browned, remove chicken and set aside.
    3. Add curry paste, brown sugar and lime leaves. Stir and let heat through for a minute before adding the coconut milk. Add the chicken and pepper, and stir well.

    Tips

    If you want to thicken the sauce, make a paste with 1 tablespoon cornflour and a little water, then stir into the curry. For more sauce, add water using the coconut milk tin.
