So you know what I noticed? Well no I don’t expect you to guess… but if you were to look at my blog you would think the only things I eat are desserts! This isn’t the case I promise. Although I do think having something sweet everyday is important for your quality of life (anyone else with me on that one?)
So I am going to try to start posting more meal recipes. Because let’s face it, in order to get to dessert you have to have a meal first. Right? Maybe? Sometimes?
You know what’s sad? The weekend is almost over. Tomorrow it’s back to work. I always feel like I need another weekend to catch up from the weekend! Does anyone else have this problem??
Well if you are looking for something to make that will last for a few lunches this chicken recipe will do the trick! I have always loved curries and this one is allergy friendly so enjoy friends!
Mango Chicken Curry
(SCD, Paleo, GAPS, Poultry)
- 4 tbsp coconut oil or grass-fed butter or ghee
- 4 boneless chicken breasts
- 1 tsp cumin seed
- 1 medium onion
- 1 medium head brocolli
- 1 red or orange bell pepper
- 1 cup pureed mango or mango juice to make pureed mango simply place chopped fresh or frozen mango in food processor and grind to desired consistency
- 1 can coconut milk or equivalent amount of homemade coconut milk
- 1/2 tsp curry powder
- 1/2 tsp turmeric
- 1/2 cup frozen or fresh peas
- 3 tbsp peanut or almond butter Optional
Turn burner onto medium and place large frying pan or skillet on for a few minutes to warm
Add oil to pan and then add chicken breasts and heat until cooked on outside
Remove chicken breasts and cut into cubes
Return chicken cubes to pan to cook fully
While chicken is cooking chop onion
When chicken is fully cooked add onion and cumin seeds to pan and cook until onion is clear/ tender
While onion is cooking chop both the broccoli and pepper
Add broccoli and pepper to skillet and allow to cook for a few minutes
Add coconut milk, mango puree, curry powder and turmeric to pan and allow to simmer for 20-25 minutes or until broccoli is cooked and most of liquid is absorbed. Stir occasionally to prevent ingredients from sticking to bottom of pan
When there is 5 minutes left to cook add the peas to the pan and finish simmering
Let cool for a few minutes and enjoy!
** If adding peanut butter add it here (I know not everyone can tolerate nut butters but this dish is so much more delicious with this addition)
If anyone makes this let me know! Trust me it is good. Like really good!
