What do I do when I am feeling sick? I make noodles. I dig in the fridge until I can find ingredients that work together and throw them into a wok. Mix in the ingredients with the thin noodles that I find in my kitchen cupboard and I get a comforting meal. Easy-peasy and in my belly in 15 minutes.
Now onto the recipe.
Boil water and place vermicelli rice noodles in water. Separate noodles with tongs.
Slice chicken, onions, and peppers. Measure out chicken stock, green curry paste, and coconut milk. Gather herbs and lime (for juice).
First, cook chicken, then add in vegetables, and then the green curry paste, coconut milk, lime juice, and chicken broth. Finally, mix in the drained noodles and top with green herbs. Enjoy!
