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

  • 4 servings (8 tablespoons) peanut sauce

Steps

Step 1

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.

Step 2

While it marinates, prep the salad. Mix together the ingredients in a large bowl and season to taste.

Step 3

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.

Step 4

Once finished, remove from heat and garnish with cilantro (and fresh mint if desired).

Step 5

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.
