Instructions

Stove-Top

  • 1. Toss the chicken with the turmeric, 1 tablespoon curry paste, and 1 tablespoon oil. Season with salt.
    2. Heat 2 tablespoons oil in a large Dutch oven or a large pot over medium-high heat. Add the chicken and sear on both sides until browned, about 2 minutes. Remove the chicken from the pot.
    3. To the pot, add the zucchini, shallots, garlic, ginger and a pinch of salt. Cook 5 minutes, until they just begin to soften. Toss in the broccoli, cook another 2-3 minutes. Stir in the curry paste and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add the coconut milk, 1/2 cup water, the chicken, remaining curry paste, fish sauce, and honey. Stir to combine. Partially cover and simmer for 10-15 minutes, or until the chicken is cooked through. Remove from the heat. Season to taste with salt.
    4. Meanwhile, cook the rice noodles according to package directions. 
    5. To serve, divide the noodles among bowls and spoon the curry, vegetables, and chicken over top. Top with fresh basil, mint, and limes.
