|Curry Thai Chicken|
This Curry Thai Chicken dish popped into my head as I spied a container of leftover rice in the fridge. Since my daughter was at school, I was only making lunch for myself. I thought this was the perfect opportunity to get a little exotic. A few weeks ago I told you about the spice blends I got from Spicely Organic Spices. Well today I thought I’d put the Curry Thai spice to good use with that leftover rice and a few ingredients I found hunting in the fridge and pantry. It’s amazing what you can quickly create with the right spices and a few fresh ingredients. Spicely’s blends are all certified gluten free, organic, vegan, MSG free and so much more.

4oz chicken breast, cut into 1 inch pieces
2 tsp curry thai spice
2 tsp oil
1 cup leftover rice
1 small onion, cut into thin wedges
1 carrot, cut into medium pieces
1 clove of garlic, sliced
1 chili, cut into slivers
10 almonds, chopped
1 tbsp dried cranberries
1 tbsp of sour cream
1 tsp of chicken bouillon
1. In a medium non stick skillet, over a medium high heat, add the onion, carrots, garlic and chili peppers with a tablespoon of oil and sauté for about 1-2 minutes.
2. Push all of the veggies to one side of the pan and add the marinated chicken to the pan and sauté for about 2-3 minutes or until the chicken is browned on one side then them over and let them go for another 2-3 minutes. I added some red pepper flakes here since I wanted my dish to be a little spicier.
3. Add about 2/3 of a cup of water and the bouillon powder to the pan and reduce the heat and let everything gently simmer for about 3 minutes while you heat up the rice.
4. Place the rice into a small saucepan with 2 tablespoons of water then add the cranberries and the almonds with a dash of turmeric (optional) before stirring it all together and letting it simmer for no more than 1 minute.
5. At this point the liquid in your curry pan should be nicely reduced. Simply sir in the sour cream and this dish is about ready to serve.
6. Garnish with a few chopped scallions and more red pepper flakes.
