This is a quick, easy and delicious curry chicken and vegetables dinner. A one pan dinner, made with great flavors from Thai Coconut Curry sauce cooked into chicken, eggplant, peppers and onions with addition of fresh ginger and garlic.
Let’s just say that this IS the perfect dish for a crazy busy week…and I’ve been having some crazy-busy days (eeer, weeks). As much as I love to spend time in my kitchen, with working on the cookbook and keeping all my readers here, on the blog, satisfied, I feel like I’ve been living in my kitchen. Some days I wake up, look towards the kitchen and grunt. “I love you, but I don’t really want to spend time with you today.” Yet, we still have to eat, right? …And every day too!
This Easy Thai Coconut Curry Chicken and Vegetables will make sure that you don’t have to spend much time in the kitchen, won’t have to do much dishes and it’s wholesome and delicious. This easy dinner is made with Thai Coconut Curry Imagine® Organic Culinary Simmer Sauce, which is a life saver on a busy day. This smooth, organic sauce is made with coconut cream, veggies, cilantro, ginger and sesame. I just added it to my chicken tenders, which were sauteed with fresh ginger and garlic, and veggies.
These simmer sauces also come in three other flavors and I can’t wait to try them all. It comes in Portobello Red Wine, Latin Veracruz and Louisiana Creole. (That Louisiana Creole would be awesome with some seafood.) They are Certified Organic, have no genetically engineered ingredients, no preservatives or artificial ingredients, and no added MSG. These sauces are also gluten free and vegetarian.
As I mentioned above, I added some fresh ginger and garlic to this dish. I have a little *tip* that I’d like to pass on to my all lovely readers.
**Confession, I have (HAD) a problem with ginger. Not a problem with ginger just a problem holding on to it. I don’t use it all that often, but I like to have it on hand. I found a great solution to ALWAYS have fresh ginger when I need it. Ignore me if this is a “no-brainer” for you but I just thought of freezing ginger a few months ago. After throwing away so much, I just started freezing it. This way I can have fresh ginger anytime.
Big PLUS: it’s much, much easier to peel, slice and grate ginger when it’s frozen!**
