Easy Curry Chicken




Mama is back in the kitchen!!!

I've made A little Indian and North African cuisines of Morocco.

Super easy tasty meal.

I made curry chicken with couscous and Jasmine rice, but we all liked it with the wheat garlic olive oil couscous.

I used a reduced fat coconut milk...  Cutting fat, sugars, cholesterol, and sodium whenever I can.

Curry Chicken with a Garlic Couscous

2 lbs. raw chicken breast, boneless, skinless, cubed
2 cups chicken broth or water
2½ cups canned reduced fat light coconut milk, divided
2 cups dry wheat whole-grain couscous
2 Tbsp. all-purpose flour
2 Tbsp. curry powder
1 Tbsp. coconut oil
3 medium carrots cut into matchstick-sized pieces
1 tbsp. Knorr pollo
1/4 onion sliced

Heat chicken broth, ½ cup coconut milk, in medium pot over medium high heat and bring to boil, gradually stir in couscous, remove from heat, let stand covered for 5 minutes remove cover and fluff with a fork.

Combine carrots flour, knorr pollo and curry powder in a big bowl add chicken mix well, toss gently to coat.

Heat oil in large pan over medium heat add chicken and cook for 4 minutes then add onion cook until chicken is no longer pink, add 2 cups coconut milk bring to a boil reduce heat to low and gently boil, stirring occasionally, for 10 minutes. To thicken up in a cup add 1 tbsp cornstarch and 2 tbsp. Water mix until all lumps are gone add to the cooked food and cook for 2 minutes.

Place ½ cup of couscous and top with ¾ cup curried chicken.

Enjoy

Thanksgiving Menu

Here are some ideas for Thanksgiving.

 I've included some of my links one is for making homemade pie crust you make ahead of time freeze it and enough to last you a year, the other link is for your turkey preparing it and baking it in the oven or roaster, homemade dinner rolls, and many more links to make your whole Thanksgiving Dinner a success.

I got you covered.

First things first. If your lucky then you make a list an asign people to bring whatever you asigned, now they can bring it the day before or give them an earlier time so you're not stuck waiting for them the item you asked for...

Now don't feel you have to do everything on Thanks you can start preparing certain things the days before or a week before Thanksgiving.

Ok let's talk turkey.

Make sure you thaw out the Turkey in the fridge days before you are actually going to make the Turkey.

Bring out a big pot a turkey can fit into or use your ice chest... 24 hours before baking turkey Fill either one pot or cooler with cold water add salt, fresh crack black pepper, sugar, lemons, and oranges mix well add ice to this mixture, now lay your beautiful turkey in this bath making sure the Turkey is submerged all the way, covering the pot with a lid or closing the coolers lid down. before going to bed add more ice... Turkey needs to stay cold at all times so it doesn't spoil. In the morning pull your bird out drain all the water rinse pat dry set aside. Get you some butter add your spices to the butter combine and rub this butter under the skin and all over the outer skin and bake until done.

The ham if you have a slow cooker perfic use it to cook your ham freeing up your oven.

If your making homemade pies either buy the pie shells or you can make the dough today roll it out... start rolling them out and stacking them placing wax paper in between and take them out when you're ready to use it, or you can roll them out... (this is what I do) place them on pie pans putting a wax paper in between each layer then wrapping them in plastic wrap and freezing them and taking them out when needed. Make pies the day before.

Making homemade rolls follow all the steps to making them once they are baked let them cool, then wrap each one with plastic wrap then place them in a Ziploc bag seal and freeze... then the day before using them take them out to thaw. You can either wet a paper towel just moist enough not soaking wet and wrap your roll and warm it up in the microwave and butter them up and they are ready to eat.

The mashed potatoes peel, rinse, boil until tender do this a week before and freeze, take out the day before you use it boil them for a bit, like 10 minutes.. While the potatoes are warning up in another pot warm up your milk, salt, peper, or whatever you are adding to them... Start smashing them up... Mix all up and they are ready to go.

Veggies can be from can, frozen, or fresh.. Veggies cook fast so you'll do the veggies on thanksgiving.

Stuffing; a week before Thanksgiving, cut up all the veggies and anything you use for your stuffing make it like you normally do mix it up place it in the baking pan you're going to bake it in and place wax paper on the top of it then a foil or plastic wrap it freeze it and bring it out the a day Or two before to defrost in the fridge then bake it on the day you are using it.

Don't forget the drinks and ice or the cranberry sauce.

Don't be shy to ask for any kind of help, especially if the party is in your home have certain guest you feel comfortable asking to help you tidy up.

Another thing I do is tell everyone bring your own Tupperware to take leftovers home.

I hope this helps you out a little. That way you don't feel so overwhelmed and you have time to get ready and spend time with the guest and you won't be so tired.

I think I covered everything.

Thanksgiving menu, so many decisions.

Here are the links;
