WHFoods Menu: Easy Thai Chicken Curry

Enjoy this easy way to add a taste of Thailand to your World's Healthiest Foods 7-Day Menu. Special health-promoting, sulfur-containing compounds make allium vegetables such as garlic and onions and cruciferous vegetables, such a broccoli, a great addition to any dish. The chicken adds a very good source of protein and this dish is an overall rich source of all the B vitamins. Note: You will need to prepare 3/4 cup brown rice for this meal. This can be done ahead of time.

Prep and Cook Time: 20 minutes

Ingredients:

Directions:

  1. Chop onions and garlic and let sit 5 minutes. Slice chicken and mushrooms.
  2. Separate broccoli florets with small stems from the large, thick stem. Slice smaller stems into 1/4-inch pieces. Slice florets into 4-6 pieces. (You can also do this step in the food processor, using the s-blade, pulsing until it is evenly chopped, 4-6 times. Be careful not to over-process).
  3. Heat broth in a stainless steel skillet over medium heat, covered.
  4. Add onions and mushrooms and saute, covered, for 3 minutes.
  5. Add garlic, chicken and curry paste. Saute 2 minutes.
  6. Add coconut milk and broccoli. When mixture begins to bubble, reduce heat to medium low and simmer, covered for 8 minutes.
  7. Season to taste with salt and lime. Add fresh herbs and serve over rice.

    Note: If you wish to use the large broccoli stem, cut off the bottom 1 inch of the stem. Peel the tough skin off the stem. Chop stem into 1/4 inch pieces and cook with the rest of the broccoli.
