  • 1 Tbsp. coconut oil
  • 1 lb. chicken breast
  • 1/2 Tsp. sea salt
  • 1/2 Tsp. black pepper cracked
  • 2 shallots 
  • 5 garlic cloves minced
  • 1 piece ginger minced
  • 3 Tbsp. red curry paste
  • 1 Tbsp. turmeric
  • 1 Tsp. garlic powder
  • 4 Cups chicken broth
  • 1 Can coconut milk
  • 1 Tbsp. tamari soy sauce
  • 2 sweet potatoes
  • 1 Package rice noodles 8oz
  • 2 chili peppers
  • 1 yellow bell pepper
  • 1 green bell pepper
  • 1 bunch Cilantro small bunch
  • 2 Tbsp. Basil fresh chopped
  • 4 limes 


  • Season chicken with salt and pepper and cut into 1” cubes. Heat a dutch oven over medium high heat. Add 1 tbsp of coconut oil and diced chicken and saute for 5 minutes.  
  • Mince garlic, ginger, and 1 shallot and add to the dutch oven. Lower heat to medium low, then add red curry, turmeric, and garlic powder. Cook for 1 minute.  
  • Cut sweet potato into ½” cubes. *We prefer to keep the skin on sweet potatoes for the taste, peeling is optional*  Pour chicken broth, coconut milk,soy sauce, juice from 1 lime, and sweet potato into the dutch oven. Stir, and cook for 15 minutes. 
  • Thinly slice green and yellow bell peppers. Add to the dutch oven with rice noodles. Cook for an additional 5 minutes to soften the noodles. This assures the peppers will still have a slight crunch! 
  • Top with thinly sliced basil and shallot. Garnish with cilantro, lime slices, and red chili peppers.
