Thai Red Curry Chicken


Scale

Ingredients

  • 1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breast (organic, free-range preferred)
  • 2 1/2 Tbsp Thai Red Curry Paste
  • 1 Tbsp Coconut Oil
  • 1 Can (14 oz.) Light Coconut Milk for a thicker consistency use Regular Coconut Milk – note, using regular coconut milk will add about 100 calories per serving due to the higher fat content
  • 1 tsp Fish Sauce (vegans/vegetarians – use 2 tsp Coconut Aminos)
  • 2 tsp Truvia Brown Sugar Blend
  • Juice of 1/2 freshly squeezed Lime
  • 1/2 Cup Chopped White Onion
  • 1 Cup Organic Broccoli
  • 1 Sliced Red Bell Pepper
  • 1/2 Cup Snow Peas
  • 1/2 Cup Sliced Leeks
  • Half a Handful of Thai Basil with purple stems removed (our local store refers to this as “Taiwan Basil”.  If you can’t find Thai Basil, Italian Basil will be fine)
  • Options – add extra fish sauce or coconut aminos for flavor, if necessary. Also, consider garnishing with fresh green onions.

Instructions

  1. Cut chicken breasts into small, bite-size pieces
  2. Cut red bell pepper, onion, leeks, and broccoli
