Quick Thai Chicken & Vegetable Curry

Curry quick enough for a weeknight supper - especially if you use precut cauliflower and baby spinach.

Serves 4

Prep Time 35 min

Total Time 45 min.

Ingredients

  • 2 teaspoons canola oil
  • 1 medium red bell pepper, cut into 1- to 2-inch-long julienne strips
  • 1 medium onion, halved and sliced
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh ginger
  • 1-2 teaspoons red curry paste, to taste (see Ingredient note)
  • 1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 1 cup reduced-sodium chicken broth
  • 1 cup “lite” coconut milk
  • 1 tablespoon fish sauce, or reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon light brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups cauliflower florets
  • 2 cups baby spinach
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice
  • Lime wedges

Cooking Directions

Step 1

Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add bell pepper and onion; cook, stirring often, until beginning to soften, about 4 minutes. Add garlic, ginger and curry paste; stir to mix. Add chicken and cook, stirring, until fragrant, about 2 minutes. Stir in broth, coconut milk, fish sauce (or soy sauce) and brown sugar; bring to a simmer. Add cauliflower, reduce heat to medium-low and simmer, stirring occasionally, until the chicken is cooked through and the cauliflower is tender, about 10 minutes. Stir in spinach and lime juice; cook just until spinach has wilted. Serve immediately, with lime wedges. Vegetarian variation: Substitute 1 pound extra-firm tofu (drained) for the chicken and vegetable broth for chicken broth.
