Thai Curry Ingredients

  • 1 lb chicken breast cut into cubes
  • 1 carrot sliced
  • 1 red bell pepper diced
  • ½ zucchini diced
  • 1 onion diced
  • 3 garlic cloves minced
  • 1 teaspoon ginger minced
  • ¼ cup peanuts chopped
  • 2 teaspoon avocado oil
  • salt and pepper to taste

Thai Peanut Curry Sauce Ingredients

  • 13.5 oz coconut milk
  • 3 tablespoon peanut butter
  • 2 tablespoon red curry paste
  • 2 teaspoon soy sauce alternatives: tamari or coconut aminos
  • 1 tablespoon honey


  • Add the avocado oil to a pot and preheat the pot over medium heat. Prepare the ingredients by washing and chopping them.
  • First, add the onion, garlic, ginger and chicken breast chunks to the pot and sauté them shortly until the chicken breast has some color. Don't cook the chicken breast through at this point as it will stay in the pot and might become dry if seared for too long.
  • Then, add the carrot to the pot and sauté until they have slightly softened. Next, add the red bell pepper and zucchini to the pot and stir everything.
  • Add all of the peanut curry sauce ingredients to the pot. Cover the pot with the lid, reduce the heat and let the peanut curry simmer for approx. 10 minutes or until the vegetables are soft enough. Add salt and pepper to taste. Enjoy!
