As you can tell, this is going to be a cooking post because I’m always looking for ways to keep my blog from getting too stagnant.
This is the first time I have tried this recipe and I got it from Pinterest. If you have read any of my other cooking posts, you already know that I use Pinterest for most of my recipes. I also never follow a recipe completely, but I do use the original recipe as a guideline.
I will tell you right now that I substituted some things, I left out a few things things, and I didn’t even measure some things. So this is my take on the recipe, but if you want to look at the original, I did provide a link.
So let’s just get into the cooking!
Recipe: Simple Curry
Please excuse the quality of my picture, I am not a professional photographer in any way.
Cooking Time: Maybe around 10 or 15 minutes?
- Olive oil – To make sure nothing sticks to your pan.
- 1 Shredded rotisserie chicken – The original recipe calls for ground turkey, but I’m lazy so I just substituted that for a rotisserie chicken from Albertsons.
- 1 1/2 Tbsp Curry powder – Its curry so of course this goes in.
- 1/4 tsp Cayenne powder – The original recipe called for 1/8 tsp, but I don’t have that small of a measuring spoon so I used the 1/4 one.
- Salt – Just put in a regular amount so that it tastes good.
- Pepper – Again just add a normal amount.
- 1 Onion – For some reason I couldn’t find an onion so I used onion powder and didn’t measure it because I just throw in some and then taste it to make sure it isn’t going to be too bland. If I think it needs more, I’ll add more. I think it was about 1 tsp or so?
- Garlic – A while ago I went to Sam’s Club and got a giant jar of chopped garlic and I just threw in some and it tasted pretty good so I didn’t add any more. I also think it was around 1 tsp.
- 1 Can coconut milk – The original recipe calls for 1 cup but I don’t like to have leftovers so I just put the whole can in.
- Shred the rotisserie chicken. If you don’t know how, just grab two forks and go to town on that guy until it looks shredded.
- Combine all your spices into a small bowl. If you don’t want to you can always just add them as you are cooking.
- Warm up your pan on lowish-medium heat. Also throw in some olive oil so nothing will stick to the bottom.
- Add your chicken to warm it up.
- Dump in all your spices.
- Add the coconut milk.
- Mix that around until its well mixed, warm and smells good.
- Make some rice or quinoa. I have a rice cooker that works really well and since I was in the mood for some rice, that is what I made.
- Eat dinner and feel very proud of your cooking skills!
