THAI RED CURRY CHICKEN

Ingredients:
  • 1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breast (organic, free-range preferred)
  • 2 1/2 Tbsp Thai Red Curry Paste
  • 1 Tbsp Coconut Oil
  • 1 Can (14 oz.) Light Coconut Milk for a thicker consistency use Regular Coconut Milk - note, using regular coconut milk will add about 100 calories per serving due to the higher fat content
  • 1 tsp Fish Sauce (vegans/vegetarians - use 2 tsp Coconut Aminos)
  • 2 tsp Truvia Brown Sugar Blend
  • Juice of 1/2 freshly squeezed Lime
  • 1/2 Cup Chopped White Onion
  • 1 Cup Organic Broccoli
  • 1 Sliced Red Bell Pepper
  • 1/2 Cup Snow Peas
  • 1/2 Cup Sliced Leeks
  • Half a Handful of Thai Basil with purple stems removed (our local store refers to this as "Taiwan Basil".  If you can't find Thai Basil, Italian Basil will be fine)

Directions:
  1. Cut chicken breasts into small, bite-size pieces
  2. Cut red bell pepper, onion, leeks, and broccoli
  3. In a deep pan (Wok style) under medium-high heat, stir coconut oil and red curry paste for 30 seconds or until all coconut oil is blended with curry paste
  4. Add 1/4 cup coconut milk, brown sugar, lime juice, fish sauce (or coconut aminos), and onion. Stir for 1 minute on medium-high heat until well-blended.
  5. Add chicken and all but 1/4 cup of the coconut milk, cook for 6 minutes on medium-high heat, stirring frequently.  Note - let mixture come to boil around the 6 minute mark
  6. Add broccoli, bell pepper, snow peas, leeks, and Thai basil, and remaining coconut milk.  Cook on medium-high heat for 3 minutes.
  7. Let boil for 60 seconds.
  8. Serve and enjoy!

Options - add extra fish sauce or coconut aminos for flavor, if necessary.  Also, consider garnishing with fresh green onions.

  3. 3 Studies SHOW Why Coconut Oil Kills Waist Fat.

    The meaning of this is that you literally burn fat by eating coconut fats (including coconut milk, coconut cream and coconut oil).

    These 3 studies from large medical magazines are sure to turn the conventional nutrition world upside down!
