I recently started grocery shopping smart using www.dealstomeals.com It’s awesome! They’re not nationwide yet, but I think they’re spreading in 2013. The website price matches using several local stores and lets you know what the best price is for everything. They also provide meal plans and recipes that go along with the best price steals of the week. I tried this recipe out, with a lot of hesitation, because it actually seemed to easy to be a good curry. It was great! No, it wasn’t gourmet or the best curry recipe I have, but its EASY and worthy of scooping up seconds. It is Brett approved too (my hubby is really picky) which says a lot. Good luck and happy cooking!
Simple Coconut Chicken with rice and carrots
2 T. olive oil
2 boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into bite sized pieces
2 T. onion, minced
1 T. minced garlic
15oz. Can light coconut milk
1 1/2 c. brown rice (or white rice)
2 c. carrots, cut into bite sized pieces
2 T. curry powder
2 T. brown sugar (optional if you like sweet & savory flavor)
Salt & pepper to taste
Dash of cayenne pepper
In a Dutch oven or heavy duty sauce pan, heat the olive oil, then
sauté the chicken pieces with the minced onion and minced garlic
until they are brown on all sides.
Pour in the coconut milk with 2 cups HOT water. Bring to bubbling
and then add the rice, carrots, curry powder and brown sugar.
Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat to medium, cover and cook for
45 minutes, or until the brown rice is fork tender. (Cook for 18 to 20
minutes if using white rice.)
Remove from the heat to prevent overcooking the rice. Let cool
slightly before serving. Serves 4.
**Note: I’ve posted the recipe exactly as it appeared on deals to meals. When I made it I added cashews just before serving and I think it made all the difference. Cashews just make everything better:)
