Friends, meet my new favorite lunch.

I’m obsesssssed. I’d say that it is turning into a real problem, but how could Thai curry noodles ever be a problem?

Want to know a secret about this recipe?

I’ve been making this as a regular “curry” for years, but the other day it occurred to me that noodles needed to be involved. Oh, and peanut butter, because curry + peanut butter is everything you need in life.

Here’s what I like to do when I make this recipe:

I make the recipe as-is through step 3 below. Then, I portion out half of it and stick it in a plastic storage container. That’s just basic curry, and I eat it with rice later in the week. Then I continue the recipe as written, using just ¾ cup pineapple, 2 tablespoons peanut butter, and about 4 ounces of rice noodles.

That way I’m making two different meals out of the same recipe! If I can cook once, then get to eat curry noodles AND chicken curry over rice, I’m a happy camper.

Instructions

  • Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Turn off the heat and submerge the rice noodles for 2-3 minutes, until al dente. Drain and set aside.
  • Meanwhile, heat the peanut oil in a wok or large non-stick skillet over medium-high heat. Add the bell pepper and scallions; saute for 60-90 seconds, until slightly browned. Add the ginger and curry paste to the pan. Use a wooden spoon to press the curry paste into the pan and let it fry for 60 seconds.
  • Add the coconut milk to the pan and stir. Allow it to come to a boil, then add the chicken. Once the mixture returns to a boil, turn the heat down to low and simmer until the chicken is cooked through (2-3 minutes). Stir in the fish sauce and brown sugar.
  • Use a ladle to transfer about a cup of the curry sauce to a small bowl. Whisk in the peanut butter until smooth. Transfer the mixture back to the pan and stir well.
  • Add the pineapple and prepared rice noodles to the pan. Let simmer for 2-3 minutes, until noodles are fully softened and pineapple is warmed through.
  • Serve topped with fresh cilantro and lime wedges for squeezing.
