After two cups of tea and perusing my cookbooks looking for a miracle meal I rolled up my sleeves, put on my apron and got busy chopping.
Eleventh Hour Chicken was created out of sheer necessity and a desire for some comfort food that could be made with what I had on hand.
Onions, garlic, red peppers, green peas, chicken meat cooked and cubed, coconut milk, red curry paste, sugar and fish sauce.
I love my rice cooker!
Perfect rice every time.
I sauteed 2 thinly sliced onions, a couple of cloves of garlic and thin strips of red pepper until soft.
Pour in 2 cans of coconut milk, whisk until it boils, then add 2 tablespoons of red curry paste, 1 tablespoon sugar and 1 tablespoon of fish sauce.
Reduce the temperature and stir well to blend.
Next the chicken to heat through, and lastly the frozen peas.
Simmer on low.
(I would have used green beans instead of the peas if I had some and I would have added a can of bamboo shoots to make it more like a Thai coconut curry)
The aroma of the coconut milk is scenting the Humble Bungalow kitchen
and wafting beyond...
red curry paste is a great thing to keep on hand in the fridge as it adds so much flavour
love these prep bowls and use them lots
Mr. HB gave them to me one Christmas
he's pretty creative with his gifts especially when he finds himself in a fabulous kitchen shop!
waste not want not
chicken day #3
Cost of free range organic chicken $30
chicken stock for the freezer
this makes good economic sense to me
Yum this smells so good!
I forgot to wipe the sides of the bowl!
dinner fast and easy
and this one is good enough to serve to guests.
