Coconut Chicken Thai Curry

I am on a thai curry kick lately!


Ingredients


8 ounces chicken breast, chopped into 1″ pieces

(I get my chicken from The Happy Butches located in Milford, NH which I highly recommend, as he sells 10 pounds of all natural, organic chicken breasts for only $35!)


salt + pepper -- to taste - I always believe these two are personal preference


1 tablespoon coconut oil


2 zucchinis, cut into 1/2″ x 2″ spears


1 red bell pepper, ribs and seeds removed, sliced


1 yellow bell pepper, ribs and seeds removed, sliced


1 bunch green onions, chopped


1 yellow onion, sliced thin


1 teaspoon fresh ginger, grated or finely chopped - you may add more if you are a ginger lover!


4 cloves of garlic, grated or finely minced


2 tablespoons red thai curry paste (or more to taste) Again personal preference


1 16 ounce can full fat coconut milk -- this is NOT coconut creamer that you would use for your coffee.


Garnish Options: red pepper flakes, fresh cilantro, wedge of lime.


Serve With Options: cauliflower rice, on top of a baked sweet potato, quinoa, farro, or Jasmine rice.


Directions


Heat a large skillet over medium high heat.


Pat the chopped chicken dry and season with salt & pepper.


When the pan is warm, add 1 tablespoon coconut oil and cook the chicken breast until golden brown and cooked thru, about 8 - 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove the cooked chicken from the pan and set it onto a plate.


With the heat still over medium heat, add in all the vegetables and season with salt & pepper.


Cook the vegetables until starting to brown slightly on the edges, but still crisp tender, Don't make them mushy (blah) about 6 minutes, stirring occasionally.


Add the garlic and ginger, cook for 30 seconds until fragrant.


Return the cooked chicken to the pan.


Add in the Thai curry paste and can of coconut milk, stir to combine. Cook for 1-2 minutes until heated thoroughly.


Spoon the coconut chicken Thai curry over cauliflower rice (or the other options I listed above) and serve warm. Top with desired garnishes; also listed above.


Leftovers will keep in an airtight container for up to 5 days. Another great meal prep idea! AND healthy!
