Thai chicken and vegetables (evil jungle princess)

Yield: 2 servings

Measure Ingredient
2 tablespoons Yogurt cheese; (strained yogurt)
2 tablespoons Evaporated skim milk
¼ cup Low-sodium chicken broth
¼ teaspoon Coconut extract
½ teaspoon Cornstarch
½ teaspoon Chili powder
1 teaspoon Peanut oil
2 Cloves garlic; peeled and chopped
2 tablespoons Lemon grass; finely chopped
2 Kaffir lime leaves; soften in warm water finely chop
8 ounces Skinless boneless chicken breast; sliced 2 x 1/4 inch strips
1 teaspoon Sugar
7 Fresh mint leaves
1 tablespoon Fish sauce
½ teaspoon Cayenne; or to taste
1 tablespoon Lime juice; freshly squeezed or to taste
2 cups Chinese cabbage; thinly sliced
2 cups Red cabbage; thinly sliced
1⅔ cup Enoki mushrooms

Combine the yogurt, milk, chicken stock, coconut extract, cornstarch, and chili powder in a small bowl. Stir until smooth with a wire whisk and set aside.

Heat the oil in a large skillet and cook the garlic, about 1 minutes.

Remove and discard the garlic.Add the lemon grass,lime leaves, chicken, and stir-fry until the chicken turns white and loses its raw look. Ad the yogurt mixture and stir-fry until the chicken turns completely white and the sauce has cooked down into a coating, not floating cream.

Stir in the sugar, mint leaves, and fish sauce. Add the cayenne. Pour in the lime juice, to taste. Remove from heat and keep warm.

Cook the cabbage slices and mushrooms in a hot skillet with just enough stock or water to create a little stream. Toss until heated through, about 2 minutes.

To serve: Lay the cabbage on warm dinner plates and spoon the sauced chicken on top. Serve with a small bowl of steaming short-grain white rice on the side.
