Green chicken curry recipe

Green chicken curry recipe with courgette noodles.

This week on Mod Fam Food we are using the amazing Spiralizer for producing vegetable noodles that can be incorporated into so many recipes. Crunchy, tasty and Carb free, a perfect addition to your kitchen. First up we are bringing you a grand old Brit weekend dish with a twist – a green chicken curry recipe with courgette noodles.

This dish has just the right amount of heat and balance of flavours, perfect for a lunch or dinner. The noodles add texture to the curry and remove the need to serve with rice. Works equally well served on its own or with a crisp green salad with thinly sliced red onions.

Tips…

Prepare the noodles, blanch the vegetables and prepare the sauce up to the point of adding the coconut milk.

I usually cook the chicken breasts in boiling water for about 10 minutes and drain and cool before shredding.

Try adding blanched mini corn cobs as an alternative vegetable.
