Whole30 Thai Curry Veggie Noodles with Chicken

This veggie-heavy chicken dish boasts tons of flavor -- thanks to red curry paste, almond butter and cashews. Crunchy cucumber noodles also make it just right for the Whole30 program (a lifestyle that encourages you to choose whole food over processed, and eschews sugar, grains, dairy and legumes).

Ingredients

1 1/2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breasts (about 2 large)

1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil

Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

1/2 cup coconut milk

Juice of 2 limes, plus lime wedges for serving

2 tablespoons almond butter

2 teaspoons red curry paste (see Cook's Note)

1 large carrot, spiralized

1/2 small head red cabbage, sliced thin

1 large English cucumber, spiralized

2 scallions, thinly sliced 

Chopped roasted, salted cashews, for serving

Directions

Special equipment:
a spiralizer
  1. Preheat the broiler and line a baking sheet with foil. Drizzle the chicken with the olive oil and sprinkle with some salt and pepper. Transfer to the prepared baking sheet and broil, flipping halfway, until cooked through, about 10 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, whisk together the coconut milk, lime juice, almond butter and curry paste in a large bowl. Add the carrots, cabbage and 1 teaspoon salt and toss to coat completely. Let sit for 15 minutes. Add the cucumber to the bowl and toss to combine.  
  3. Thinly slice the chicken. Divide the veggies among 4 bowls and top with the chicken, scallions and some cashews. Serve with lime wedges.

Cook’s Note

Some red curry pastes are not approved on the Whole30 plan so check the label of yours before using.
