I have been missing curries again, and one of my favorites is Green Curry Chicken. Unfortunately, it’s usually made with coconut milk, so I can’t eat it. You can use regular milk or cream in this recipe if you prefer the dairy, but it isn’t necessary. As is, this low-amine Green Curry Chicken was delicious. The avocado lends a wonderful creaminess to it that makes up for the fats missing by removing the coconut milk.

2 lbs boneless skinless chicken thighs, cut into bite-sized pieces

1/2 tsp salt

2 Tbsp granulated garlic powder

3 Tbsp safflower oil

2 Tbsp ginger, peeled and roughly chopped

1 1/2 tsp ascorbic acid

1 avocado, barely ripened

2 medium bundles cilantro

1 Tbsp lemongrass (white parts)

1/2 tsp cayenne

1 Tbsp water

1 1/2 tsp salt

2 C rice milk

Steamed rice (I won’t insult your intelligence. I’m going to assume you know how to do this.)

  • Make rice.
  • In a bowl, add chicken pieces, garlic powder, 1/2 tsp salt, and garlic powder. Mix until evenly coated.
  • Heat large pan to medium high and add oil. When oil is hot, add chicken. Allow to brown, then flip pieces over to brown other side. Cook for about 5 minutes, stirring often (don’t burn your chicken!), or until just barely done.
  • Pour chicken into a clean bowl and set aside.

  • In a food processor, add all other ingredients except rice milk. Blend until very smooth.
  • Pour puree into a pan and add rice milk and any cooking liquid left in the bowl of cooked chicken.
  • Turn heat to medium until it starts to boil and reduce to a low simmer. Cook sauce for about 5 minutes, stirring frequently.
  • Add chicken back in until both sauce and chicken are fully heated through.
  • Serve over rice.
  • Garnish with cilantro or a sprinkle of cayenne pepper, if desired.
