Red Chicken Curry Tacos, Salad & Peanut Sauce
RED CURRY CHICKEN THIGHS
Ingredients for 4 servings
- 1 1/2 lb chicken thighs (with fat trimmed)
- SUBSTITUTE: chicken breasts
- 4 tablespoons red curry paste
- spray olive oil
- Cucumber Tomato Salad
- 2 Roma tomatoes, diced
- 1 medium cucumber, diced
- juice from 1 lime
- 1/3 cup fresh cilantro, finely chopped
- sea salt to taste
- 8 low-carb wheat tortillas
- 4 servings (8 tablespoons) peanut sauce
- fresh chopped cilantro
- fresh chopped mint
Trim visible large pieces of fat from the chicken thighs. Place in a large bowl along with the red curry paste. Mix together, ensuring each piece is covered. Cover with plastic wrap and marinate in the fridge for at least 1 hour.
While it marinates, prep the salad. Mix together the ingredients in a large bowl and season to taste.
Place a nonstick skillet on medium high heat. Once hot, spray with olive oil (or avocado oil), add the chicken. Cook on each side for 5 to 7 minutes, cooking all the way through.
Once finished, remove from heat and garnish with cilantro (and fresh mint if desired).
Make the tacos. Dice up the chicken and evenly divide 1 serving among 2 small tortillas. Top each a tablespoon or 2 of the tomato-cucumber salad.
