Recipe: Quick & Easy: Chicken & 2-Minute Noodle Curry

I'm beginning to think that 'Quick & Easy' might be the new motto for our family food. Because everything I seem to post lately has that element about it. Here's yet another example of a fantastic tasting and easy family meal served up regularly on our patch. Although it might look similar, it has a very different flavour to the Thai Green Curry recipe posted a few weeks back.

1 large chicken breast
1 Tbsp oil
1 onion, chopped
1 garlic clove, crushed
1 capsicum, seeded and sliced
Enough veges to bulk out the meal (our standard fare is broccoli and courgette)
1 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp turmeric
1 tsp garam masala
1/4 tsp chilli powder
1 tin of coconut milk or cream (either low or full-fat works fine)
2 packets of 2-minute noodles Chicken flavour
Fresh coriander or parsley to taste

  1. Cut chicken into small chunks, and cook in wok/saucepan until golden brown and cooked. Remove and set aside.
  2. Add onion and garlic and all the veges and cook until nearly 'stir-fried'. Add the spices and coconut milk/cream and bring to the boil, stirring.
  3. Break the noodles and add into the wok with flavour sachets. Cook, stirring for 1 minute.
  4. Add the chicken and cook for a further 2-3 minutes.
Serve and enjoy people! Serve and enjoy.

How did it go down? Do you prefer it to your other curry?

I have never made a coconut curry, so I'm excited to try this one. All those veges make it look soo good! Yummo!

Yum! I love coconut cream/milk curries, and this sounds so tasty with the noodles.

love this recipe, have made it a couple of times now. We omit the chilli powder (fussy kids!) but I love how you can use the basic recipe with either fresh/dried noodles or even rice for that matter. Perfect combination of the spices. Yum :-)
