Quick & Easy Red Curry Chicken

This is my own version of Red Curry Chicken. Most recipes call for Fish Sauce, of which I’m not a fan, and brown sugar. And it only took 10 minutes from start to finish. The brown rice was already cooked and waiting in my stainless steel pressure cooker.

This is very simple and truth is, you could take all the ingredients, dump them in a large, heavy saucepan and simmer 5-8 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through. But if you want more step-by-step, this is how I made it and approx. amounts.

2 large boneless chicken breasts, cut in chunks
Vegetables cut in large chunks. Today I used 2 small zucchini, 1/2 red bell pepper, and 1 small onion. Snow peas or fresh green beans would be good also.
1 T. red curry paste
2 tsp. olive oil
1 13-15 oz. can of coconut milk
1/2 cup chicken or veggie stock
Juice from 1/3 lime, pinch of red pepper flakes, pinch of Chinese 5 powder, pinch of pink salt and pepper.
1 T. pesto (I have it frozen in cubes from last year’s garden) You could also just use 2 T. basil leaves.

Heat the olive oil and red curry paste in a large, heavy skillet, until fragrant; 1 minute or so.
Add the coconut milk and stock, heat until simmering. Add the chicken chunks. Simmer 3 minutes. Add all the veggies and the seasonings. Simmer until veggies are crisp tender and the chicken is cooked through.

Serve with brown rice.

In my 21 Day Fix meal plan, this was 1 red, 1 yellow and 1 green for me.

Moms, I’m talking to you!

It’s Monday morning. And this stay-at-home-mom is exhausted! Last week we were gone several afternoons and evenings in Lincoln, Nebraska, about 25 minutes from our house, for extended hours at a time.

Don’t give up, Moms. I know there are days when you feel like your heart has been broken enough times. When you wonder, why did God let me be a Mom in the first place? There will be days when you just want to stay in bed. You will start to question all the sacrificesContinue Reading

How Much Sugar Are You Eating?

Americans currently consume an average of 3 pounds of sugar per week. That’s 194 grams of sugar per day. The World Health Organization recommends we dramatically cut back. They suggest that a maximum of 5% of your total daily calories come from added sugar (sugar that naturally occurs in produce and other foods is ok). That’s 25 gramsContinue Reading

March Madness Specials on Les Mills Pump and Combat

About 10 years ago, I was toying with the idea of buying P90X. You’ve probably heard of it. I had never done sports in school, aside from a semester of basketball in 8th grade. I made a 3-point basket, which was good enough for me. My main focus was music and academics, so although IContinue Reading
