I have a new obsession and that obsession is Simply Balanced sparkling water from Target. No, this is not a sponsored post. I just seriously need to talk about this water because it’s blowing my damn mind. My two favorite flavors are the ginger peach and watermelon and I need you to go buy them right now. Seriously, you will not regret this purchase. Plus, who doesn’t love sparkly cold water in the hot hot summer? It’s only a slight exaggeration but I might have consumed somewhere around 400 cans this weekend.

But for real it’s hella delicious and highly recommended. I’m also going to highly recommend this chicken snow pea green curry but it’s also hella delicious! Plus, curry tastes amazing and is the perfect flavor to go with all your summer vegetables. 

And if you’re really into fast weeknight meals this 100% fits the bill. This chicken snow pea green curry cooks up in just 20 minutes and if you throw in prep time you’re talking 25 minutes. Of course, you can customize what veggies go into this recipe based on what you have on hand but I personally think this yellow onion/red bell pepper/snow pea is a great combo. The best part is you can pick up the green curry paste from the store or Amazon. So easy!

Every single time I make something with snow peas I think to myself “why don’t I cook snow peas more often?” so they are on the top of my list lately.

Plus they are super crunchy and that is always a plus in my book!

Yield: 4 servings

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Cook Time: 20 minutes

Total Time: 25 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil, divided
  • 1 pound boneless skinless chicken breast, cut into bite size chunks
  • 1/4 cup green curry paste
  • 2 teaspoons grated garlic
  • 2 teaspoons grated ginger
  • 2 teaspoons grated lemongrass
  • 1 teaspoon grated lime zest
  • 1 small yellow onion, peeled and thinly sliced
  • 1 red bell pepper, cored and thinly sliced
  • 1 cup chicken stock
  • 1 (14 ounce) can coconut milk
  • 3 cups snow peas
  • 1/4 cup fresh sliced basil
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
  • Cooked rice, for serving

 

Directions:

In a deep 12-inch skillet add 1 tablespoon olive oil and set over medium high heat. Add the chicken and cook for about 5 minutes until the outside is no longer pink. Remove from the skillet, put on a plate and set aside.

In the same skillet add remaining 1 tablespoon olive oil, green curry paste, grated garlic, grated ginger and grated lemongrass. Mix together to combine.

Add the onion and red bell pepper and cook for 5 minutes or just until they start to soften. Pour in the chicken stock, bring to a boil, lower the heat and simmer for about 3 minutes.

Add in the coconut milk, snow peas and the chicken. Simmer until all the ingredients are warmed through and the snow peas just start to soften - about 5 minutes. You don't want to the coconut milk to boil so just keep it at a gentle simmer.

Once the curry is done remove from the heat and stir in the basil and lime juice.

Serve hot over rice.
