This spicy recipe tastes so good, it's hard to believe it's healthy. It's convenient as a one-pot meal, but a cooling side dish such as fresh sliced mango or a cucumber salad would be good too. I use red pepper flakes because I don't like the acidity of fresh; instructions are included for fresh red pepper if you prefer. You can also replace the chicken broth with vegetable broth for a vegetarian meal.
