One Pot Thai Green Curry Chicken


(Disclaimer: Post contains affiliate links)


INGREDIENTS:


Unrefined coconut oil

½ lg red onion, sliced thin

8 cloves of roughly chopped garlic

1 lg eggplant, peeled and cut into 1” cubes

2 cans of unsweetened coconut milk (I love this brand for whipped coconut cream!)

4 c filtered water

Squeeze of lemongrass paste from the tube

Hand torn fresh basil or dried basil to taste

1 jar of Thai Green Curry Paste

1 pkg organic chicken tenders, cut into 1” cubes

1 c white quinoa

Cilantro, sliced chilis, lime wedges, etc. for garnish

Sea salt to taste


INSTRUCTIONS:


Heat a large dutch oven over medium-high heat until hot. Coat the bottom of the pot with coconut oil then add onion and next 8 ingredients and a big pinch of salt. Bring just to a boil then turn down to medium and cook uncovered, stirring occasionally, for 25 minutes.


Stir in quinoa and continue cooking for another 20 minutes until chicken is tender and quinoa is cooked through.


Taste and adjust seasoning by adding more of whatever flavors you’d like to taste more of then serve with your choice of garnishes.
