Thai Chicken Pasta with fresh Fettuccine

This is a different take on Thai food using pasta instead of rice.  Enjoy!

Ingredients:

  • 1 14-ounce can light unsweetened coconut milk
  • 2 tablespoons Thai red curry paste
  • 1 tablespoon minced peeled fresh ginger
  • 1 cup canned low-salt chicken broth
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1 1/2 pounds skinless boneless chicken breast halves, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
  • 2 tablespoons fish sauce (nam pla)
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
  • 1 small red bell pepper, chopped
  • 1 cup sliced green onions
  • 1 1/4 cups chopped fresh basil
  • 1 pound linguine
  • 2 cups small fresh broccoli florets (about 5 ounces)

Directions:

Stir coconut milk, curry paste and ginger in heavy large skillet over medium-high heat until paste dissolves, about 1 minute. Mix broth and cornstarch in small bowl until cornstarch dissolves; mix into skillet. Stir until slightly thickened, about 2 minutes. Reduce heat to medium and add chicken, fish sauce and lime juice. Simmer over medium heat until chicken is cooked through, about 2 minutes. Add bell pepper, green onions and basil and cook 2 minutes.

Meanwhile, cook linguine in large pot of boiling salted water until tender but still firm to bite, stirring occasionally. Add broccoli and boil 1 minute. Drain pasta and broccoli. Return to pot.

Pour sauce mixture over pasta and toss to coat. Season with salt and pepper.

  2. Yummy!! I saw my pesty groundhog twice yesterday. We stared at each other… he unafraid…. me annoyed!! He’s very smart – he waits until everything is almost ready to pick… then he begins his ‘buffet’… a bite here… a bite there… (He is kinda cute though!)

    • LOL … too funny! Too bad he is not intimidated by your stare! My bunnies are the same way … they keep on hanging out! Too many good things to eat in my yard, not to mention the garden that will be growing soon.
