2-serving instructions (4-serving modifications in red)

Wash produce before use


Prep and cook the chicken

  • Pat the chicken dry with a paper towel; season with salt and pepper and rub with the red curry paste.

In a medium [large] frying pan over medium heat, warm 1 to 2 tablespoons oil until hot but not smoking. Add the chicken and cook, turning occasionally, until lightly browned and cooked through, 3 to 4 minutes per side for thighs, 4 to 6 minutes per side for breasts. Transfer to a cutting board to cool slightly. Cut the chicken into ½-inch-thick slices. Wipe out the pan. While the chicken is cooking and cooling, start preparing the remaining ingredients.


Prep the remaining ingredients

  • Cut away any core from the cabbage; thinly slice the cabbage.
  • Using a sharp knife or a peeler, remove the peel from the jicama; cut the white flesh into ½-inch-thick slices, then cut the slices lengthwise into ½-inch-thick sticks.
  • Using your hands or a sharp knife, peel the orange. Cut the fruit crosswise into ½-inch-thick slices or see Chef’s Tip on supreming. Discard any seeds. 
  • Strip the mint leaves from the stems.
  • In a small bowl, stir together the cashew-lime glaze and 2 tablespoons [¼ cup] water. Set aside for serving. 


Make the jicama-citrus salad

In the same pan used for the chicken, warm 1 to 2 tablespoons oil over medium-high heat until hot but not smoking. Add the cabbage, jicama, and carrots and season generously with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the vegetables are crisp-tender, 2 to 3 minutes. Remove from the heat. Add the orange, mint, and lime juice and toss to combine. Season to taste with salt and pepper. 


Transfer the jicama-citrus salad to individual bowls and top with the chicken. Spoon over as much cashew-lime sauce as you like and serve any remaining sauce on the side.
