Thai Coconut chicken and pineapple curry
I just love Thai food. We spent our honeymoon in Thailand. 40 days of heaven. I just fell in love with their cuisine, to the point that I took myself a meal to go a minute before hopping in a taxi to the airport on our flight back, so I don't have to eat plane food and enjoy one last fabulous Thai meal. I love the dishes that have coconut milk in them and if it's spicy it's even better. I always keep red and green Thai curry paste and fish sauce in my fridge and ginger and lemongrass paste in my freezer, so I can make a fast fix of Thai dishes when ever I want.
300 gr chicken breast cut into small pieces
I cup cubed fresh pineapple
2-3 tablespoons Thai red curry
2-3 tablespoons oil
2-3 tablespoons fish sauce - add more if you want it saltier
About 8 asparagus stalks cut in the middle - remove the bottom
3-4 fresh Thai Chile cut into chunks ( couldn't find any in my grocery store so I used the dry ones which are way less spicy - so I doubled the amount)

1 tablespoon minced lemongrass
4-5 thinly chopped garlic cloves
½ butch fresh cilantro - washed and chopped
