*Gluten Free *Paleo *Whole 30
1 tablespoon coconut oil
2–3 tablespoons red curry paste (depending on how hot you like it)
1 teaspoon each: ground coriander and ground turmeric
3 chicken breasts, cut into 1 1/2 inch chunks
2 cups chicken stock
3 tablespoons fish sauce (Whole30 compliant, if needed)
1 tablespoon honey (omit for Whole30)
1/2 red onion, chopped
1 – 15-ounce can of coconut milk
3 large zucchinis, spiralized or cut into zoodles
Optional toppings: bean sprouts, cilantro, a squeeze of lime juice
1) Add the coconut oil and red Thai curry paste to a medium-sized pot over medium-high heat. Let the curry paste cook for 2 minutes then add the coriander and turmeric and cook for 1 minute more.
2) Add the chicken, chicken stock, fish sauce, honey, and red onion and bring the pot to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer for 15 minutes. Add the coconut milk and heat through.
3) Add the zucchini to the pot and let it cook for 2 minutes, or until it is soft enough to twirl around a fork.
4) Serve immediately and (if using) top with the optional toppings.
