We went to our friend’s house for dinner the other night and had this fabulous Chicken Lime Curry dish, so of course, I had to get the recipe and make it for dinner this week. Everyone ate all of it, but without much comment. I wasn’t sure if they liked it because I know curry can be a pretty strong spice. So after everyone was done, I asked the kids what they thought and Alice came back with “I loved it!!” and Tate said “Mmm. Uh hmm. Yeah, mom it was good.” So enthusiastic, right? But he really did like it because he ate every single bite! Anyway, I loved it and it went really well with my butternut squash soup for lunch the next day.
By the way, a grater should not be used in place of a a zester. Out of a whole lime, I only got about 1/10 of a tsp of lime zest! Time to invest in a real zester…
Okay. here’s what you need for the chicken dish:
- 1 1/2 lb chicken breast, cut into bite sized pieces
- 1 1/2 lime, juice
- 1/4 tsp lime zest
- 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
- 1/2 tsp celtic sea salt
- 1/4 tsp pepper
- 1 1/2 tsp curry powder
- 1/2 tsp coriander
- 2 tsp cilantro, fresh or dried
- 2 tbsp coconut palm sugar
Here’s what you need to do:
1. Preheat oven to 350.
2. Cut up chicken into bite sized pieces.
3. Place chicken in a square glass dish and set aside.
4. Combine above ingredients in a separate bowl, mix, and add to the chicken.
5. Bake for 30 min, stirring around every 10 minutes or so.
