Inside: A delicious campervan meal – a Hot Logic Thai recipe to satisfy your craving for take-out. Adaptable to gluten-free, vegetarian, and keto diets.
Some days I crave Thai food. But when I am out in the wilderness, boondocking in my Glampervan that can be a problem. But no longer. Because NOW I can whip up this Thai curry dish in minutes, and then leave it to cook while I go and play.
I really love this Hot Logic Thai recipe. My entire family tasted it and gave it a thumbs up.
If you have dietary restrictions – no problem- this recipe is extremely adaptable.
Low carb diet? Leave out the noodles.
Gluten-free diet? Keep the noodles, or serve it over rice instead.
Vegetarian? Use tofu or a soy protein product instead of chicken
Gather the ingredients together. Slice and chop away. I use skinless, boneless chicken thighs, but breast meat will do too if that’s how you roll.
Skippy creamy is my go-to peanut butter brand, but use whatever brand you prefer. If you’re eliminating sugar, use your favorite all-natural, sugar-free brand.
Place the broccoli and onions in your cooking dish.
Stir together the curry paste, peanut butter, and water. You can substitute coconut milk for the water if you like (more calories though), or pour in some green curry sauce. The curry sauce is harder to find, and optional, but it does add an extra oomph if you have it. It’s not in the printed recipe because it is hard to find.
Mix the sauce with the chicken and plop over the vegetables.
Mix everything together – I just use my hands, but a spoon will do.
Below is a photograph of the chicken and vegetables after one hour of cooking. Time to add the rice noodles.
This is two ounces of rice noodles. They are a perfect length for fitting in the container. Make sure to scoop the sauce, meat, and vegetables on top of the noodles or they won’t cook well. They need to be submerged in the moist ingredients.
And here is the final product after the 2nd hour of cooking. Test the noodles and keep cooking in 15-minute increments until they are done to your liking. You can also cook the noodles separately if you want, but then you have more clean up.
Rice is a good substitute for the noodles, but don’t try cooking rice in the Hot Logic. It just doesn’t cook well, or at least I haven’t perfected the magic there. When campervan cooking, I use pre-cooked rice and just heat it up in my second Hot Logic Mini (yes I have two).
I know, the dish below is messy, but this is real life. It tastes so good.Print
Chicken and broccoli dish with the flavors of Thai green curry and peanuts.
1/2 cup sliced onion (I prefer purple onions for this recipe)
3/4 cup broccoli pieces
1 chicken thigh, boneless, skinless, sliced thin), or use breast meat if you prefer
1 tsp Thai green curry paste (such as Taste of Thai or Blue Elephant)
2 T peanut butter (any kind you like)
1/2 cup water
2 oz rice noodles
1/2 T chopped peanuts (optional)
Slice or chop the onion, broccoli, and chicken as described and place in a 36 oz glass container.
Mix the curry paste, peanut butter and water in a separate bowl
Add sauce mixture to the chicken and toss until evenly coated
Place lid on the container and set inside the Hot Logic box.
Cook for 1 hour
Add the noodles. Make sure the noodles are submerged under the sauce, adding a small amount of water if needed (1 T at a time).
Re-cover and cook for one more hour.
Test the noodles for doneness and cook longer, in 15-minute intervals until they reach the firmness you prefer. You can also cook the noodles separately if you prefer.
Serve topped with chopped peanuts (optional)
Low carb diet – eliminate the noodles and use sugar-free peanut butter.
Whole 30 – eliminate the noodles, substitute Whole 30 compliant coconut milk, and add more chicken.
Gluten-free – no changes need, this recipe is already GF
