Leftover chicken? Have I got a recipe for you!!!

If you made my last recipe, the midweek meal, then you may well have some left over chicken and I’ve got a great recipe for you for these cold days and chilly evenings were having at the moment. It’s a Thai Green Chicken Noodle Broth, I made it today and it’s pretty yummy. I love a Thai Green Curry but this really hits the spot when you want something to warm you up on a cold afternoon, it’s made from left over chicken so it’s super easy and takes not time at all, with a small amount of chopping you’ll be tucking into this in no time

To make enough for 2 you will need

  • 1 spring onion sliced
  • Cooked chicken
  • 200ml of coconut milk
  • Thai Green Curry Paste
  • 1 noodle nest
  • 8 Green Beans
  • Handful of frozen peas

First a small amount of prep, slice the spring onion and the green beans and chop up the cooked chicken. Lightly fry the spring onion for 2 mins to soften slightly, add the Thai Green Curry Paste, I haven’t given you an amount for this, it depends how hot you want it, I used 1tbsp which gave it a nice heat but not too much but add more or less to however hot you want it. Fry the curry paste for 2 mins then add the coconut milk and 200ml of water. Add the green beans and simmer gently for 4mins, add the cooked chicken and the noodles (you’re going to want to crush the noodles so they’re in small strands so it’s easier to eat) simmer for 2 mins and add the peas and as soon as the peas are ready your good to go. It should be kinda “thin” it’s more of a broth than a soup. 

Put into a bowl and enjoy with a hunk of bread, this is sure to warm you up in no time
