For dinner on days like this, where it's kind of miserable out and there's a good game on TV, here's a quick dish that you can work on during intermissions. It's quick, simple and great for tomorrow's lunch.
* 8 skinless thighs (thawed)
--I leave the bone in for flavour, you can use drumsticks too
--I buy a big pack of thighs from Costco and separate them into smaller portions before I freeze them.
* 1 large turnip or 2 small ones
-- you can sub w/ potatoes
* 3 carrots
--peeled and cubed the same size as turnip pieces
* 1 can MaeJin Thai Green Curry w/ Vegetables
--available at T&T
* 1 can AROY-D Green Curry
--Superstore or other Asian markets
** If you can only find one brand just use 2 cans of it
Hurry up, the game's about to start!!!
--in a stew pot put your chicken in with enough cold water to cover it and then some
---medium/high heat, covered
Watch the 1st period.
--once water comes to a boil, turn it down to a simmer
--1st intermission, check your water level and top up if needed
Watch Team Canada or the Canucks kick some ass in the 2nd.
--2nd intermission, drain most of the water, leaving approx 1.5 cups
---add veggies and both cans of curry
----medium heat, covered
---make some rice
Watch us shut it down !!! LUUUUUUUU!!!
--by the end of the game your stew and rice should be done
-just check the texture of the veggies to your liking
Thai Curry Chicken on a bed of rice.
*note: no seasoning. The sauce has a bit of spice and I've always found it not requiring additional salt or pepper.
Enjoy your meal while watching highlights or when the GF changes it to American Idol.
