Red Chicken Curry

Serves 4

  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • Red curry paste (30-100 grams)
  • 1 tablespoon fresh grated ginger
  • 3 chicken breasts, skinned and cubed
  • 1/2 brown onion, peeled and diced
  • 1 can light coconut milk (300ml)
  • 1 lime
  • Salt to taste
  1. Heat the oil over a high heat in a medium-sized heavy pot. Add the onion and saute for a few minutes then add the chicken and curry paste (30 grams for mild or 100 grams for hot).
  2. Add the ginger, give a few stirs and add the coconut milk. Salt very lightly.
  3. Add enough water to just cover the chicken pieces. Bring to the boil, turn down to a simmer and cook uncovered for 10 minutes. The sauce will have thickened slightly.
  4. Season to taste and serve.

Tip: If you want to make a 'meal in a pot', add some fresh green beans, zucchini, broccoli and asian leaf vegetables (bok choy, choi sum etc.) when the chicken is cooked and cook for a further 5 minutes or so unti the vegetables are just tender. You can also add a squeeze of lime for extra taste.

I agree with Frisbar, I added heaps of fresh veggies and fresh coriander. A dash of fish sauce and a squeeze of lime. It was delish!!! Didn't miss the rice I preferred it without it was like a laksa.

Sarahh89, Check out our Program Guide or List of Slimming-Friendly Foods here: The quantity you can have of vegies from our list of 'Friendly' vegies is generally unlimited, unless otherwise stated i.e. you'll see the words "in moderation" next to some of them.

Oh my goodness this was good- I added a few Tbsp of fish sauce and lots of veggies (broccoli, capsicum, green beans, and courgette). The sauce was so lovely that I thought of this as a curry soup, so I didn't even miss the rice! Very tasty.

Hi Lyzee, We recommend that you avoid consuming starchy carbohydrates as they will only slow down your weight loss progress. Our Celebrity Slim meal replacements and snacks already contain a balanced amount of carbs necessary to satisfy your daily requirements, so you're still getting enough without having too many to affect your progress. Here's an explanation as to why it's important to reduce your carbohydrate intake when it comes to weight loss:

The carbohydrates we eat (such as sugar, bread, pasta, rice, potatoes wheat and flour etc.) are used by your body to maintain vital levels of sugars stored in your muscles and liver. These stored carbohydrates are the primary energy source that your body uses for everyday activities.

When you start dieting to lose weight, your body continues to burn up carbohydrates for energy. Only when these carbohydrate stores become low do you start to burn a significant amount of fat, and burning fat leads to the type of weight loss you want.

Unfortunately, even if you are dieting, each time you eat a meal containing a reasonable amount of carbohydrates, your carbohydrate stores get topped up again and you stop burning a lot of fat and go back to burning mostly carbohydrates - which slows down the whole weight loss process.

However, if you start to cut back on the amount of carbohydrates you eat, your stores run low, which forces your body to start burning more fat for energy, so you lose weight faster.

The Celebrity Slim Program is not a 'no' or 'low' carbohydrate diet - it does allow a regular intake of healthy fibrous carbohydrates. But compared to a traditional Western diet, it contributes about 1/4 of the amount. (You can read more about how the Program works here:

Is a small amount of brown rice ok?

Hi Colleena, Glad you enjoyed experimenting with this recipe! Just remember that unless you're on the maintenance phase of the Program, rice should be avoided as it is too high in carbohydrates.
