Yield: 2 Servings Prep time: 10 minutes Total time: 20 minutes
IngredientsCoconut oil | 1/2 Tbsp x 2
Chicken Drumsticks | 4
Green Curry Paste (I like Aroy-D) | 1 Tbsp
Coconut Milk | 1 Can
Fish Sauce | 1 Tsp
Lemon Juice | 1 Tbsp
Sea Salt | 1/8 Tsp
Swerve (or other sweetener of your choice) | 1 Tsp
Liquid Stevia | A few drops (modify to taste)
Shirataki (Konjac preferable to Tofu) noodles (Optional) | 1 Whole Package Cashew nuts | 12 nuts
Fresh Cilantro | a bunch
Optional: If you are less strict with your carbs, fry up some onions, red or green cabbage, green peppers, and sliced cucumbers for extra thai curry flavor. I either make the chicken curry and noodles alone, or with veggies, depending on my carb intake that day.
Heat the coconut oil in a pan over the stove, and add the drumsticks when the pan is hot. These should cook for about 10-20 minutes depending on your stove, turning them over every 4-5 minutes to make sure they crisp up on all sides.
In a separate stove top pot, add coconut oil and the green curry paste, and heat until fragrant, careful not to burn it. Stir it a bit with a wooden spoon, and then add the coconut milk and bring to a simmer.
Keep cooking the chicken and also prepare shirataki noodles if you are using them (these are drained, boiled for one minute and then the moisture is removed with paper towel and or 1 minute in the microwave).
Add fish sauce, sea salt, lemon juice, swerve and liquid stevia to the green curry mixture and cook for a total of about 10 minutes until the chicken is ready. At this point, you can either serve the curry poured over drumsticks, or as I prefer to, by removing the drumsticks from heat and chopping off all of the skin and chicken meat. Proceed by adding it back to the pan and add the green curry sauce.
Heat cashews if desired on a stove top pan for a few minutes or serve them raw. Serve over shirataki noodles, or with cauliflower rice, the optional veggie mixture (see above), or on it’s own depending on your carb intake for this meal. Top with cashews and fresh cilantro!
