Something about Thai food. I love it. It incorporates a depth of such delicious flavors, but a lot of recipes call for ingredients that are unhealthy and unnecessary. Cooking this Chicken Curry on low for 6 hours allows the chicken to become so tender that it falls apart and gives the flavors enough time to develop beautifully.
Funny story: Mark and I love going to this Thai restaurant in Memphis called Bahn Thai and while I was doing my first Whole30, we really struggled with him wanting to go out to dinner and me being like what the heck am I going to eat? Thai food sounded healthy enough so I called the hostess ahead of time to ask about the menu (didn’t want to embarrass Mark at the table). Homegirl had an attitude when I asked about what they put in the curries. She rudely informed me that I wouldn’t be able to find anything and each curry has at least 3 cups of white refined sugar.
Alright then, I’ll make my own. So i did.
The first couple of Chicken Curry recipes I made were absolutely to die for, but pretty tedious. Now that I am back and bunking with my sister and brother-in-law I earn my keep by having a hot meal on the table when they get home from work, but with my running and blogging it’s not always easy. This recipe takes hardly any prep other than chopping and I like to do all that ahead of time anyway.
The sauce is so dang good I ended up eating the rest of it as soup. Don’t judge… You’ll probably do it, too.
Peppers are so pretty! No wonder I cook with them as often as I do.
Paired with my Cauliflower “Fried Rice” and you got yourself a high quality meal.
