Green Curry Chicken

So, I know these pictures aren’t all that appetizing. I mean, if you have a somewhat good imagination then I’m sure you could picture this meal tasting delicious, and you’d be right. This meal was delicious! It was so authentic tasting. I was pretty proud of myself. My stomach is growling just looking at these pictures. Good thing I’ve got the leftovers for lunch tomorrow.

I just happened to come across this recipe in Cooking Light, and I’m so happy I found it. It was one of those small side recipes that they didn’t show a picture of. I hate when recipes don’t have pictures, but by reading the ingredients, I knew this recipe would be something I’d love.

It’s pretty dang healthy, too, so that’s always a bonus. I really would have loved to devour this over jasmine rice, but that dang David, he’s always trying to make me cook healthy these days. So, instead I served it over quinoa. I would have served it over brown rice, but now he’s trying to limit his carbs, so quinoa it is. A little protein with some more protein. I also added a very large serving of green beans, and I ended up mixing them into the dish, which actually worked out pretty splendidly.

David’s already asked me to make this again next week, and I wouldn’t be surprised if I actually do. We both ended up loving it, and almost licking the pan dry…Geez, you sure know it’s a keeper when that happens.

Yum! My hubby is a curry fanatic; he’s been experimenting with his own recipes lately. I should show him this one to mix it up!
