  • Place the cubed chicken in a mixing bowl and add ½ tsp fine grind sea salt, ½ tsp of black pepper, 1 tsp of the red curry paste, and 1 Tbsp of the yellow curry powder. Mix to combine.
  • Turn the Ninja Foodi on high sear/sauté and add 2 Tbsp of olive oil. Allow the oil to heat up and add the chicken and onions. Sauté on high for 3-5 minutes. Deglaze with the chicken stock.
  • Add in the peppers, the fire roasted tomatoes, remaining 1 tsp salt, lemongrass paste, garlic chili sauce, remaining curry powder, and the remaining red curry paste, rinsed black beans, coconut milk, and the peanut butter. Do not stir.
  • If you want to cook your rice at the same time, rinse the rice under cold water until the water runs clear and put it in a 6" Fat Daddio pan with 1½ cups of water. Put the rack in the high position and set the pan on top, cover with foil or a silicone cover.
  • Put the pressure lid on and turn the valve to seal. Pressure cook on high for 5 minutes. When the time is up allow the pot to natural release for 2 minutes and then manually release the remaining pressure.
