Dinner Time.

In an effort to eat healthier, I have been cooking more and eating out less. I made this (if I don't say so myself) de-lish dinner tonight (and the other night too, eep!) and I wanted to share the recipe.

It's originally a Weight Watchers recipe so I can't take credit for it, but I did alter it quite a bit. I'm not really a 'follow the recipe' kind of girl, but here's an outline:


1. Veggies; such as red bell peppers, onions, shredded cabbage, mushrooms (whatever you like and have on hand)
2. Garlic (fresh or ground garlic)
3. Ginger (again, fresh or ground ginger)
4. Fresh basil
5. Coconut milk (light coconut milk, if you can find it)
6. Thai curry paste, red
7. Soy sauce
8. Chicken breasts

To start, saute the chicken with garlic and ginger. While that is cooking, mix half a can of coconut milk with a tablespoon of red curry paste and a tablespoon of soy sauce. Add more or less curry paste depending on how spicy you like your food. When the chicken is nearly done, add the veggies to the saute pan with the chicken. Add the fresh basil towards the end. Pour the coconut milk mixture over the chicken and veggies and let simmer for about ten minutes. Serve with rice, cous cous or whatever you fancy.

De-lish and extremely simple!
