Woolworths' new range of Asian-inspired pastes has all the classics: Thai green, yellow and red paste and a punchy hot-and-sour paste that makes the best tom yum soup. The best thing about these pastes is you just need to add your favourite protein and veg and top it with coconut milk and stock. Serve with noodles or rice and dinner is ready in under 30 minutes! If you're a busy home cook, these pastes are a lifesaver.


  • 1 T vegetable oil
  • 90 g Woolworths Asian Thai yellow paste
  • 400 g Free-range skinless chicken breast fillets
  • 400 ml coconut milk

  • 2 carrots, peeled and diced
  • sea salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • Jasmine or black rice, steamed, to serve
  • Whole star anise, for garnish
  • Fresh chilli, chopped (optional)
