Let's get cookin'
I was starting to think that this whole being healthy thing was going to be too much work
There was lots of browning and oven baking and such
Real cooking stuff
But Kayln showed me the light.
She introduced me to Patak's Curry Paste
Which is simultaneously South Beach friendly
And fabulously delicious
The below recipe is based on one from Kayln's Kitchen
And modified by little 'ol me.
*Slow Cooker Lite* Chicken and Vegetable Curry
2 green bell peppers
8 oz mushrooms
4 chicken breasts
1 can diced tomatoes
6 tblspns Patak's Biryani Curry Paste - Cilantro and Cumin, Medium
(to taste, I like mine spicy)
Pour a enough curry paste in the bottom of the pot to barely cover it (about 1 tblspn)
Throw your chicken breasts in the pot.
Dice up your onions, bell peppers, mushrooms and carrots (and any other leftover veggies you feel like throwing in) and add them to the pot.
Add the diced tomatoes and juice and enough curry sauce to give it a good coating (about 5 tblspns ended up being about half the jar for me)
Switch the magic slow cooker to low and walk away. Take the pup or the kiddos for a walk. Do some jumping jacks. Dance around your apartment until you break a sweat.
Come back in 6-8 hours
And try not to gasp at how delicious your home smells.
Shred up the chicken if you're in the mood for that.
Serve it in a bowl for you
And over rice for your Hubby or the little ones
And, once again, enjoy the fact that you made something that's not only delicious
But also good for you.
