  1. Fill a large pot with lightly salted water and bring to a rolling boil over high heat. Once the water is boiling, stir in the fusilli, and return to a boil. Cook the pasta uncovered, stirring occasionally, for 5 minutes; then stir in the green beans. Cook until the pasta has cooked through but is still firm to the bite and the green beans are tender but bright green, about 7 more minutes. Drain the pasta and green beans well in a colander set in the sink.
  2. Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat, and cook the chicken just until it loses its pink color, about 2 minutes. Stir in ginger, garlic, salt, and red pepper flakes, and cook until the garlic is fragrant, about 1 minute; stir the coconut milk and lime juice into the skillet with the chicken. Bring the mixture to a boil; mix in the drained pasta, green beans, and cilantro. Reheat to a simmer.

  • Cook's Note
  • I usually make this without the cilantro and crushed red pepper, and find it just as good.

Pretty good! I didn't have fresh green beans, so I used a can of drained beans. I also added slivered almonds to it. The chicken could have more flavor. I think next time I will marinate the chicken pieces in the lime juice and ginger and see how that turns out.


Good and easy if you're in the mood for thai flavor and don't want to go to a lot of trouble. Unlike another reviewer I could tell that my family needed more chicken and less salt from the beginning so I made those adjustments. Will make it again.


Well, there was way too much pasta and not enough chicken. Extremely salty and I over salt everything. It was honestly not good and I don't think anyone actually made this before posting it.
