  3. Heat the remaining tablespoon of oil in a saucepan set over a medium-high heat. Add the onion, if using, garlic and ginger and cook for a few minutes, stirring to make sure the vegetables don’t burn. Add the red curry paste and cook for 3 minutes, then pour in the coconut milk and bring to a gentle simmer for 5 minutes. Add the diced chicken along with the sweet potatoes, carrots, bell pepper, lime juice and honey and continue to simmer for about 15 minutes, until the sweet potatoes are cooked through.
