An easy, all-in-one meal that uses the couscous-like pasta. The combination of green curry paste and curry powder creates a flavor that will have your taste buds excited. Have it tonight or next week – as this dish freezes and reheats well.


Ingredients

  • 1 lb. skinless chicken breast, cubed
  • 2 cups/16 oz Acini di Pepe
  • 2 cups shredded carrots
  • 2 zucchinis, sliced
  • 2 yellow squash, diced
  • 14 celery sticks, sliced
  • 4 cups/32 fl oz chicken bouillon
  • 2 tsp green curry paste
  • 2 tbsp curry powder
  • 2 tbsp garlic powder


Method

  1. Dice the chicken and vegetables
  2. Mix together all ingredients, except the Acini di Pepe, in the slow cooker
  3. Cook for 2 hours
  4. Add in the Acini di Pepe
  5. Cook for 30 minutes
  6. Serve



Serving Suggestions

I designed this dish to act as an all-in-one dish. However, you could serve this cold with a beautiful green salad. The curry taste is strong, so it should be paired with items with a subtle flavor.

Callie’s Review and Tips

I created this recipe by throwing things into my slow cooker and hoping for the best. I have created something utterly amazing, and it ears a Callie Review score of 5/5. I’ve taken this to work, and each time I am told that my meal looks and smells amazing.

When you are prepping the dish – go light on the green curry paste initially. It’s easier to add more than it is to cool down an overly-spiced dish. Green curry paste is potent for many pallets.
