Ingredients and Instructions

6 13.5-ounce cans unsweetened coconut milk

Work in batches as necessary. In a large stockpot over medium-high heat, bring coconut milk to a rapid boil.

9 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breasts, sliced thin into bite-sized pieces
½ cup yellow curry paste
¼ cup sugar
3 tablespoons fish sauce (or salt to taste)

Add chicken, curry paste, and sugar. Stir thoroughly. Return to boil. Reduce heat to a low boil and cook, stirring frequently, until chicken is cooked through. Season to taste with fish sauce (or salt). Remove from heat. Cool.

1 pound carrots, cut into 1-inch pieces
2 pounds potatoes, peeled and chunked

Bring stockpot of salted water to a boil. Add carrots and simmer 10 minutes. Add potatoes and simmer 15 more minutes (potatoes should be slightly undercooked). Drain. Add to chicken curry. Divide evenly among tins. Cover with a sheet of plastic wrap, pressing down to cling to food. Apply board lid. Freeze.
