12 oz packaged, whole-wheat angel hair or capellini pasta
non-stick Cooking spray
1 cup washed, fresh basilOR
2 tsp dried basil
1 lb lean, ground chicken breast
8 oz canned, no-salt-added water chestnuts (drained, rinsed)
16 oz frozen stir-fry vegetables or mixed vegetables (thawed)
1 cup light coconut milk
2 tsp mild curry powder
Cook pasta according to package directions (omitting the salt and fat). Drain pasta in colander.
Coat a large pan with cooking spray. Add basil leaves, and cook over high heat until wilted, about 1 minute. Add chicken, breaking meat up with spatula. (If using dried basil, skip first step and add with meat.) Stir and cook until done, about 5 minutes.
Add water chestnuts and vegetables, and stir. Cook until warm, 3 to 4 minutes.
Add coconut milk and curry powder. Stir to combine and cook until just warm, about 1 minute. Remove from heat, add noodles, stirring to coat with mixture. Serve.
Cooking Tip: Add a dash of cayenne powder or crushed red pepper flakes if you want a little spiciness in the curry.
Keep it Healthy: Light coconut milk has 60% less calories and fat than regular coconut milk.
Tip: When using coconut milk, always be sure to shake the can before using because the coconut milk will have separated.
