Course: Main Dish
Cuisine: Asian, Thai
Servings: 4-3 people
1-2tbspgreen curry pasteuse more or less if you want, depends on spiciness
2chicken breastscut into 1 inch / bite sized pieces
2cupschicken stock500 ml
1canlight coconut milk1-2 cans*
2cilantro stems (with leaves)finely chopped
2green onionschopped, white and green part divided
1largecarrotcut into matchsticks
2kaffir lime leavesoptional but highly recommended
9-10ozuncooked vermicelli rice noodles250-300 gr
salt and pepperto taste
Heat a large saucepan with a little canola oil to medium high heat. Add minced garlic and ginger and cook for 1 minute. Stir in the green curry paste and cook for 1 more minute. Add chicken, stirring for 3 minutes.
Add the carrot, white part of the green onion, kaffir lime leaves, chicken stock, lime juice, light coconut milk and cilantro.
Bring to a boil and then reduce to simmer for 10 minutes.
Meanwhile, prepare a pan for the noodles. Boil the noodles for around 7 minutes, until they are tender (check your packaging). You may also do this the one pot way and add the noodles directly into the soup after it has simmered for 10 minutes**
Add the cooked noodles into the soup and mix (or uncooked and cook for 7 more minutes). Taste and adjust seasonings (salt and pepper) accordingly, may also want more chicken stock or light coconut milk.
Top with cilantro, green part of the green onions, lime wedges and chili if desired.
* My green curry paste is really spicy, so I took more like 1.5 cans of light coconut milk. You could also add more chicken stock. Taste and adjust accordingly.** If you add the noodles directly to the soup to boil, it will be thicker. I think that is even more comforting, but a little less soupy. I've tried both ways, and I like both but the results are a little different. In the photos I boiled the noodles separately. Did you make it?
