Thai Green Curry Chicken

Oxmoor House
Prep time 5 mins
Cook time 10 mins
Yield 4 servings (serving size: 1 cup chicken mixture)
Thanks to a deli rotisserie chicken, this dish lets you enjoy Thai cuisine with minimal effort. We packed this classic curry dish with colorful peppers and used light coconut milk to cut some of the fat. Serve it over fragrant jasmine rice to soak up the sauce.

Ingredients

  • Cooking spray
  • 1 medium onion, halved and vertically sliced
  • 1 small zucchini, halved lengthwise and sliced
  • 1 small red bell pepper, cut into thin strips
  • 2 teaspoons green curry paste
  • 2 cups thinly sliced roasted chicken breast
  • 1 cup fat-free, less-sodium chicken broth
  • 2/3 cup light coconut milk
  • 3 tablespoons fresh cilantro leaves
  • Lime wedges (optional)
  • Cilantro sprigs (optional)
