On my quest to learn to cook… and my craving for curry….  I created a recipe to cater to my taste.  Here’s what you’ll need:

Makes 4 servings:

  • Trader Joe’s Red Thai Curry
  • Pre-cut asian stir fry veggies (mushrooms, snowpeas, red bell pepper, white onion, etc)
  • Whole wheat spaghetti noodles
  • 2 chicken breasts
  • Salt, pepper
  • Red pepper flakes
  • Soy sauce
  • Sesame oil
  • Olive oil
  • 1 stalk green onion
  • 1/2 bunch cilantro

Directions:

  1. Cut chicken breasts into cubes, roughly equal in size for even  cooking.  Season with salt and pepper (or use Montreal steak seasoning — what I used as I had it easily on hand) to taste.  Heat skillet on medium heat.  Drizzle olive oil into pan when it’s hot.  Place chicken cubes into pan.  While that’s heating up, we’ll boil the noodles and cut the green onions and cilantro.
  2. Place pot onto stove…half filled with water for boiling the noodles.  place half bag of spaghetti noodles into pan once water is boiling.  Leave half covered for about 10 minutes…stirring occasionally.
  3. Dice green onions and cilantro.
  4. Once chicken has started to brown, add splash of soy sauce and splash of sesame oil and red pepper flakes.  Add stir fry asian vegetables.  Stir occasionally.  Once chicken is browned and no longer pink on the inside, add red thai curry sauce and simmer for about 5 minutes.
  5. Strain spaghetti noodles into a strainer.  Place noodles on a dish and top with meat, vegetables, and curry sauce.  Top with fresh cilantro for presentation.
