  • 1  10  ounce package 
    frozen pureed winter squash
  • 1/2  cup 
    lite coconut milk, (see Tips for Two)
  • 1/2  cup 
  • 8   ounces 
    boneless, skinless chicken breast , thinly sliced
  • 1  6  ounce bag 
    baby spinach
  • 2   teaspoons 
    lime juice
  • 2   teaspoons 
    brown sugar
  • 1/2 - 1   teaspoon 
    Thai red curry paste, (see Note)
  • 1/4  teaspoon 
Heat squash, coconut milk and water in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the squash defrosts, about 10 minutes. Add chicken, reduce heat to medium and simmer, stirring occasionally, for 3 minutes. Stir in spinach, lime juice, sugar, curry paste to taste and salt and continue cooking until the chicken is cooked through, about 3 minutes longer.

Tips for Two: Refrigerate coconut milk for up to 4 days or freeze for up to 2 months. Drizzle on sliced fresh fruit; use as some of the liquid for cooking rice.
Note: Red curry paste is a blend of chile peppers, garlic, lemongrass and galangal (a root with a flavor similar to ginger). Look for it in jars or cans in the Asian section of the supermarket or specialty stores.
