Thai Green Curry (YUMMY!)


Thai Green Curry (YUMMY!)

I found this Recipe on the Weight Watchers website. (http://www.weightwatchers.co.uk/food/rcp/RecipePage.aspx?recipeid=7018552)

I love Thai Food so it is one of my personal favorite Weight Watchers Recipes.

It is healthy and quick and easy to make.

Time Required: 30 Minutes
Weight Watchers points: 8 Pro Points (WOW!)

Ingredients

Instructions

  • Heat a wok or large frying pan and mist with low fat cooking spray. Add the shallots, garlic and chicken and cook over a medium-high heat for 4 - 5 minutes, or until the chicken is sealed and browned.
  • Add the lemongrass, ginger, coconut milk, chicken stock and curry paste. Stir in the fish sauce or soy sauce and coriander. Simmer for 20 - 25 minutes, until the chicken is cooked and the sauce has reduced a little.
  • Season with salt and pepper, if needed. Serve with cooked rice or noodles (remembering to add the extra ProPoints values), garnished with coriander sprigs.




Personal Tips!

  • Instead of serving this with Rice, I usually serve it with noodles. After the dish is ready to go in the frying pan. I add noodles and stir into the dish for 2 minutes just to heat up. I use Tesco Fresh Noodles in the bag only 1 euro (BARGAIN) and are already cooked so you only need to stir through! Half a pack will add a pro points value of 3 points! (YAY)
  • I also add more vegetables to the dish, to bulk it up (keeps you fuller for longer.) I usually use Tesco stir fry pack as the vegetables are already cut and ready to add
  • The dish can also be served with Rice. Weight Watchers have a delicious recipe for Fried Rice (http://www.weightwatchers.com/food/rcp/RecipePage.aspx?recipeId=182921)

Happy Cooking! :)
