1lb. boneless skinless chicken breast or extra-firm tofucut into 1/2-inch pieces
3/4tsp. ground turmeric
1/4tsp. cayenne pepperoptional
6cupsreduced-sodium chicken or vegetable broth (or use any variety)
3/4cuplight unsweetened coconut milk
1 - 2limejuice only, 3 Tbsp.
3Tbsp. smooth natural peanut butter or other nut or seed butter
2cupsthin egg noodles (use wheat/gluten-free noodles if needed)
2Tbsp. fresh cilantrochopped (optional)
In a large stockpot, heat the oil over medium heat. Add the garlic and stir-fry it for 1 minute until it is a light golden color and fragrant.
Add the chicken or tofu, turmeric and cayenne (optional) and stir-fry it for 3 - 4 minutes until the chicken is partially cooked.
Add the broth, coconut milk, lime juice, peanut butter and noodles. Bring the soup to a low boil, partially cover the pot, and simmer the soup for 15 minutes. Stir in the sugar and cilantro (optional), and serve it hot.
Slow Cooker Directions
Omit the oil. Combine all the ingredients except the noodles in a slow cooker, and cook on low for 6 - 8 hours or on high for 3 - 4 hours. Add the noodles and cook on high for 30 - 45 minutes more or until the noodles are tender. If you prefer to use pre-cooked chicken, you can cook the soup without the chicken on low for up to 10 hours (don’t use the high setting), then add the chicken when you add the noodles.
(Slow cooker cooking times may vary—Get to know your slow cooker and, if necessary, adjust cooking times accordingly.)
Do Ahead or Delegate: Peel the garlic, cut the chicken or tofu and refrigerate the chicken, juice the limes, chop the cilantro if using.Scramble Flavor Booster: Double the cayenne pepper and use extra cilantro.Tip: Most of us lead pretty busy lives. If you find that you need to eat while on the go (like in the carpool line or at your desk at work), try to be prepared with healthy options like whole grain crackers and low fat cheese, nuts, and grab and go fruits like apples or bananas. This will keep you away from the vending machines or drive-thrus later!Nutritional Information Per Serving (% based upon daily values): Calories 300, Total Fat: 15g, 23%; Saturated Fat: 8g, 40%; Cholesterol: 55mg, 18%; Sodium: 470mg, 20%; Total Carbohydrate: 16g, 5%; Dietary Fiber: 3g, 12%; Sugar: 4g; Protein: 24gLike this recipe?
