Spicy Coconut Curry Noodles

Spicy Coconut Curry Noodles

Slurp. Sniffle. Repeat.

These 20-minute spicy coconut curry noodles are addictive, flavorful, and good-for-the-soul.  They’re like if your grandma’s chicken noodle soup had a sexy, dangerous twin.  It hurts so good and you just can’t stop going back for more.

I use rotisserie chicken to make this dinner super fast and easy.  Try not to eat half the chicken at the counter as you’re shredding it.  I also use pad thai rice noodles which don’t even require you to boil a separate pot of water.  Hello post-work, post-class, post-workout easy recipe.  I’m keeping you.

Recipe type: Curry
Cuisine: Thai
Serves: 2 servings
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon fresh ginger, minced or grated
  • 1 red chili, sliced
  • 3 tablespoons Thai Red Curry Paste
  • 4 cups chicken broth
  • 1 can coconut milk
  • 1 teaspoon soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon fish sauce
  • 1 scallion, sliced
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • Cooked rotisserie chicken, shredded
  • 8 oz package Pad Thai Rice Noodles
  • 1 lime, juiced
  • Fresh cilantro and/or basil
  • 1 scallion, sliced
  1. In a large pot over medium heat, add the oil, garlic, ginger, chilis and curry paste. Cook, stirring for 5 minutes.
  2. Add the chicken broth and coconut milk, stir, and bring to a boil. Taste, and add a dash of soy sauce if the soup needs salt.
  3. Splash in a tablespoon of fish sauce, (tastes better than it smells!). Stir in 1 scallion, sliced. Add the sugar.
  4. Add as much cooked and shredded rotisserie chicken to the soup as you like! I use about half the chicken. Add a half pack of rice noodles, and let cook a minute or two until the chicken is heated through.
  5. Remove the soup from heat, and squeeze the juice of one lime into the soup. Top with fresh cilantro, basil, and sliced scallions.
  6. Let the soup sit for 5 minutes, or until the noodles are cooked through.
