I LOVE stir fry – it’s our family favorite for Sunday dinners.  This Thai infused fry provides a tastier, healthier stir fry option.  It’s gluten free, full of colorful phytonutrient rich vegetables and so tasty!


1 cup organic basmati or jasmine rice, rinsed

1 can coconut milk (I prefer Native Forest brand)

1 pound pastured chicken, cubed

1 Tblsp toasted sesame oil

1 Tblsp finely grated ginger

2 cloves minced garlic (I love the jar option for ease)

1 C chopped organic onion, red

1 organic red pepper, sliced into thin slices

1 organic yellow pepper, sliced into thin slices

3 large carrots (or 3/4 cup shredded), sliced thin

1 C broccoli, chopped small

1.5 C organic kale, chopped

2 Tblsp Thai red curry paste (I prefer Thai Kitchen brand)

1 can coconut milk (I prefer Native Forest brand)

1/2 C filtered water

1 Tblsp Tamari (wheat free) OR coconut aminos (wheat & soy free)

2 tsp rice vinegar


  1. Prepare the rice first. Empty can of coconut milk into a saucepan and bring to a boil. Add rinsed basmati or jasmine rice and reduce heat to low, cover, and allow to simmer ~20 minutes.
  2. For the stir fry, best to use a large, deep sided skillet or cast iron wok. Heat over medium heat. Once it’s hot, add the sesame oil.
  3. Add the chicken chunks and cook until no longer translucent.
  4. Add the onion, stirring often, until it’s soft and translucent ~5 minutes.
  5. Add the ginger and garlic and cook until fragrant ~30 seconds, stirring often.
  6. Add the peppers, carrots, and broccoli. Cook until tender ~3-5 minutes, stirring on occasion.
  7. Add the Thai curry paste, stirring frequently ~2 minutes.
  8. Add the coconut milk (can), water, and kale. Stir to combine. Bring to a simmer. Cook until to your liking of softness ~5-10 minutes, stirring on occasion.
  9. Remove from heat & add tamari/coconut aminos & rice vinegar.
  10. Enjoy!
