Thai Curry Chicken



Do you have a recipe that you crave frequently?  Our go-to, craved-often meal is one we’ve made for about 20 years now.  Thai Curry Chicken is one of our favorites.  The truth is: it has become a recipe that Toby has perfected, so if I’m not in the mood to make dinner, I suggest Thai Curry Chicken because I know that he’ll make it for me.  In addition to being really tasty, it is fairly healthy.   Red bell peppers not only taste better than green ones, but they are also a good source of Vitamin C and B6, thiamine and lycopene (which helps protect against cancer and heart disease).  Best of all, this is a one-dish meal!

    I loved this recipe. My husband and I love curries, but don’t make them very often because they end up either too spicy, too heavy with the coconut milk, or take so long for the flavor to soak into the veggies. This recipe was quick and some of the best curry I’ve had! Based on what we had in the house, we substituted the chicken with tofu, green beans with broccoli, and soy sauce with Bragg’s Amino Acids. It had the right amount of spice–really flavorful without being too hot. Our 3 and 6 year-olds even ate it!
