Thai-Style Chicken, Shiitake and Tenderstem Brocolli with Noodles and Coconut Broth
- Preparation Time20 mins
- Cooking Time25 mins
For the garnish
Put the oil into a large saucepan and fry the shallots, garlic, mushrooms and butternut squash until they are golden – it will take about 3 minutes.
Add the turmeric and curry paste. Stir around and cook for a minute until the spices become fragrant.
Add the coconut milk and the stock and bring to a simmer. Cook for 10 minutes (the squash should feel quite soft) then add the chicken and Tenderstem broccoli and cook for another 5 minutes. The squash should be completely tender and the chicken cooked through. You can add more stock or water if you would like it to be ‘soupier’.
Season with the sugar, lime and fish sauce and adjust to your taste – you may want to add more lime or even a little more sugar. You want a balance of hot, sour, salty and sweet.
Cook the noodles according to the instructions on the packet. Once cooked, divide the noodles between four or six bowls, spoon the chicken over them, and top with the spring onion, chilli and coriander. Offer wedges of lime to serve.
