Thai Chicken Curry

Chicken is a good source of protein and choosing breast meat provides a lower fat option. Leg/thigh meat may be higher in fat but it can provide more iron, while the coconut milk in this recipe provides vitamins B, C and E and other minerals. A rich array of vegetables in this dish would provide a variety of colours and textures. This meal would be ideal for body repair after surgery. Serving this curry with plain boiled rice would provide additional energy or brown rice for a high fibre option.
