Coconut Thai Chili Noodle Bowl
- 6 tsp Red Chili Paste
- 5 tbsp Unsweetened Coconut Cream
- ⅛ cup Sriracha (20 grams)
- ½ tsp Black Pepper
- ½ tsp Garlic Powder
- 36 oz Boneless, Skinless, Chicken Breast slice into bite sized piece before cooking (about 3 large breasts)
- 1 Udon Noodles (about 280 grams), (Brand Hakubaku)
- ½ cup Red Cabbage sliced, (about ¼ head of cabbage or 50 grams)
- 1 Red Bell Pepper sliced, (1 large pepper, or 160 grams)
- 2 Serrano Pepper sliced, (2 pepper, or 30 grams)
- 1 Ancho Chili Pepper sliced, (1 pepper, or 30 grams)
- ½ Red Onion sliced, (½ onion, or 75 grams)
- ⅛ tsp Sesame Seeds
- ⅛ tsp Red Pepper Flake
- Heat a large stove top saute pan to medium heat.
- While the pan is heating combine the red chili paste, coconut cream, sriracha, black pepper, and garlic powder in a small bowl. Mix until well incorporated.
- In another larger bowl add your sliced chicken. Then pour ½ of the red chili paste and coconut cream over top of the chicken. (Reserving the other ½ of sauce for later.) Toss the chicken in the sauce.
- Once the chicken is coated in the cream. Pour the chicken with the cream into your hot pan. Spread the chicken out into an even layer and allow to cook for 3-4 minutes. Then stir and cook for another 3-4 minutes. At this point your chicken will be almost done.
- While the chicken is cooking, bring a pot with about 4 cups of water to a boil. Once the water is boiling add the noodles to the pot. Cook the noodles for 4 minutes stirring often to keep them from sticking together. Once done, strain and rinse with cold water. Leave the noodles in the strainer until later.
- Now add the sliced red cabbage, bell pepper, serrano pepper, ancho pepper, and red onion to the pan with the chicken. Toss everything together cooking for 2-3 minutes. Then cover with a lid, turn the heat down to medium low, and cook for another 3-4 minutes. This will help soften up the veggies. They will still be crisp but a little softer.
- After the veggies have cooked with the chicken covered for 3-4 minutes, add the remaining thai chili coconut cream to the pan. Then add the cooked udon noodles to the pan. Toss everything together for 1-2 minutes to get the cream warm and incorporated into all of the ingredients.
- Serve with a sprinkle of sesame seed and red pepper flake. Enjoy!
