Equipment

Ingredients

  • 4 bone-in, skin-on chicken thighs
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper
  • ¼ teaspoon smoked paprika
  • ¼ teaspoon turmeric
  • 1-2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 yellow onion diced
  • 1 red bell pepper diced
  • 1 zucchini diced
  • 2 baby bok choy chopped
  • 3 garlic cloves minced
  • ½ tablespoon ginger minced
  • 2-3 tablespoons red curry paste
  • ¼ cup coconut aminos or soy sauce
  • 2 teaspoons oyster sauce
  • 1 can full fat coconut milk
  • salt to taste
  • ½ lime juiced

Instructions

  • Season the chicken thighs with a ¼ teaspoon of salt, black pepper, paprika and turmeric.
  • Heat the olive oil in a dutch oven or large pot over medium-high heat. Once the oil is hot, add chicken thighs and brown for about 5 minutes, per side.
  • Remove the chicken from the pan and set it aside on a plate for later. Add the diced onion, bell pepper and zucchini to the pot and cook until the onion is translucent about 5 minutes.
  • Next, add the chopped baby bok choy, minced garlic, ginger and curry paste to the pot and stir. Cook for about 2 minutes until fragrant.
  • Pour in the coconut aminos or soy sauce, oyster sauce and a can of coconut milk. Stir in additional salt, to taste.
  • Then, add the chicken back to the pot, partially cover and simmer for about 15 minutes, until the chicken is cooked through. Turn off the heat, squeeze in lime juice and let cool for about 5 minutes before servings.
  • Serve with Jasmine rice or naan bread and enjoy!
