Easy Thai Chicken Curry

Ingredients:

  • 1 teaspoon olive oil

  • 1 cup (240g) diced yellow onion

  • 3 cups (405g) thinly sliced bell peppers (about 2 large)

  • 1 tablespoon ground ginger

  • 1 ½ lb (680g) raw chicken breast (diced into ½-inch cubes)

  • 1 4-oz jar “Thai Kitchen” green curry paste

  • 1 14-oz can (397g) light coconut milk

  • ¼ teaspoon salt

  • 2 cups (60g) baby spinach

Instructions:

  1. Heat olive oil over medium heat. Add the onions, peppers, and ground ginger to the pan and saute until the onions are translucent, about 5-7 minutes.

  2. Turn the heat up to medium-high and add the chicken to the pan. Cook, stirring often, for about 5 minutes or until the chicken is no longer pink.

  3. Add the curry paste to the pan and stir well. Cook for 1-2 minutes.

  4. Add the coconut milk and salt and stir well. Bring to a boil, turn down the heat to low, and cover the pot. Simmer for about 5 minutes or until the chicken is just cooked through.

  5. Stir in the spinach and remove the pot from the heat. Cover for 2-3 minutes to allow the spinach to wilt.

  6. Serve over brown rice, white rice, cauliflower rice, or quinoa. Garnish with chopped cilantro if desired!

Notes:

  1. To make this curry spicier use “Thai Kitchen” spicy red curry paste instead (starting with 2-3 tablespoons and increasing from there.) Or, add cayenne pepper to taste.
