1/3 cup panang curry paste
2 cans coconut milk

1 cup green beans, trimmed
1 red bell pepper, cored, seeded and julienned
6 kaffir lime leaves

In a medium bowl, whisk together curry paste and 1 can coconut milk. Transfer into a large saucepan. Add remaining coconut milk, chicken, shallot, sugar, and fish sauce. Bring to a low boil and cook until chicken juices run clear, approximately 15 to 20 minutes. Stir in green beans, bell pepper, kaffir lime leaves, and bird's eye chile. Continue cooking until green beans and bell pepper are tender, approximately 5 minutes. Remove from heat and garnish with Thai basil. Serve over steamed jasmine rice.
