Thai Red Coconut Chicken Curry

I love Thai food! I used to make Thai Red Coconut Chicken Curry all the time but with no clue what the calories were like. I’d just slap it together and eat it with a mountain of rice. It was delicious but I’m sure it was really high in calories. This Thai Red Coconut Chicken Curry is only 296 calories per serving! Serve it with half a cup of rice and its 417 calories. Not bad for something that tastes like take out Thai!

If you want to mix things up you could certainly bulk up the serving size with more veggies if you wanted to. This would also be tasty if you subbed half or all the chicken for prawns or white fish, and would lower the calorie count even more!

Thai Red Coconut Chicken Curry Substitutions:

For the curry paste, there are many different kinds. I went with Cock Brand Thai Red Curry Paste. It is quite spicy so if you’re sensitive to heat maybe start with half the recommended amount of paste and see how it tastes, you can always add more near the end of cooking. To do this scoop some sauce into a measuring cup, add more paste to the measuring cup and whisk until smooth and then pour it back into the pot and just stir to combine.

 

 

I hope you enjoy, let me know what you think in the comments!
