Chicken Curry With Quaker® Oats

Prep time 20 minutes
Cook time 15 minutes

1 pound boneless skinless chicken thighs 
4 cups low-sodium chicken stock (no-sodium stock is good, too)
1 ounce canned massaman red curry 
2 cups unsweetened Quaker
® Oat Beverage
1 cup Original Quaker® Oat Beverage 
1 cup Quaker® Old Fashioned Oats
1/2 cup peeled and chopped carrots 
1/2 cup peeled pearl onion (frozen is fine)
1/2 cup cauliflower florets or tiny potatoes 
1/2 cup peas (frozen is fine)
1/2 red bell pepper cut in diamond shapes
2 tablespoon chopped cilantro 
1 tablespoon chopped basil 
1 lime and its zest 

Simmer the Quaker® Old Fashioned Oats per manufacturer’s instructions in chicken stock and reserve. Simmer the vegetables until tender in the remaining chicken stock, adding the peas in the last minute or so. Season chicken with salt and pepper, and sear. Blend the curry paste and Quaker® Oat Beverage together. Simmer chicken and sauce together in a saucepot until the chicken is finished cooking, around eight to 10 minutes. Plate the oats on the side of a bowl. On the other side, spoon out the chicken and oat curry sauce. Top with the vegetables, the chopped herbs, and a good squirt of lime and zest. Optional: Garnish with chili oil or chopped jalapeño for a spicier curry!
