Quick Chicken Coconut Curry Noodles

Quick Chicken Coconut Curry Noodles
 
First, I have to admit, this was supposed to be a soup. Since this was the first time I made the recipe, the recipe below is a noodle dish, however, if you want to make it a soup, just double all of your liquids, or halve the noodles. Honestly, I would be great either way! 
 
I absolutely loved how quick this recipe was, and was a hit at cooking club this month. Plus, it’s gluten free! 

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons (coconut) oil
  • 3 garlic cloves, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon fresh ginger, grated
  • 3 tablespoons Thai red curry paste
  • 8 oz. boneless chicken breast or thighs, sliced

  • 1 cup water
  • 2 tablespoons fish sauce
  • 1 can lite coconut milk
  • 6 oz. dried rice vermicelli noodles

     

  • 2 cups frozen peas

  • 1 bunch cilantro, chopped
Directions:

In a large pot over medium heat, add the (coconut) oil, garlic, ginger, and Thai red curry paste. Fry for 5 minutes, until fragrant. 


Add the chicken and cook for a couple minutes, just until the chicken turns opaque.

 
 
Add the chicken broth, water, fish sauce, and coconut milk. Bring to a boil. Salt as needed (mine did not need any.)
