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!)
|5 spray(s) Cooking Spray, Calorie Controlled|
|6 medium Shallots, peeled and sliced|
|2 clove(s) Garlic, crushed|
|500 g Chicken, Breast, Skinless, Raw, cut into chunks|
|5 stem Lemon Grass Stems, very finely chopped, or 2 tsp prepared lemongrass|
|2 teaspoons (grated) Ginger, Root, or 2 tsp prepared ‘fresh’ ginger|
|400 ml Amoy Reduced Fat Coconut Milk|
|1 cube(s) Stock Cube, Vegetable, dissolved in 150ml hot water|
|4 teaspoons Curry paste, Thai green curry paste, mild|
|2 tablespoons Thai Fish Sauce|
|2 tablespoons Coriander, Fresh|
|1 teaspoons Salt|
|1 teaspoons Black pepper|
|1 sprig(s) Coriander, Fresh, to garnish|
|1 teaspoons Oil, Olive|
- 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.
- 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! :)
