  1. Heat oil in a large skillet on high heat. Add chicken cubes; cook until browned, about 2 minutes per side. Reduce heat to medium-high and add coconut cream and curry sauce. Cook until chicken is no longer pink in the center and the juices run clear, about 5 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).
  2. Fill a large pot with lightly salted water and bring to a rolling boil; stir in vermicelli pasta and return to a boil. Cook pasta uncovered, stirring occasionally, until the pasta is tender yet firm to the bite, 4 to 5 minutes. Drain.
  3. Reduce skillet heat to simmer. Add the noodles and let simmer until flavors are absorbed, about 5 minutes. Divide chicken and noodles among individual serving bowls.

I made it with Thai coconut cream rather than Coco Lopez cream of coconut. It was excellent. I think it would have been fine either way.

Very simple recipe! I added onions and peppers to the recipe. I have made similar recipes that are more advanced. Very good base recipe.

This was delicious and very quick to make. My grocery store didn’t have any red curry paste so I substituted green curry. I also added some red and green pepper for some veggies. Yum!
