Feels like it's been WAY longer than two weeks since we've had a little chat, doesn't it?? I SO appreciate you all being patient and understanding during our move, but now, WE ARE IN! (and we're mostly unpacked... crazy?)
I'll have to upload a few photos of the new stove so you can see how much joy I get every morning in looking at it, let alone actually turning it ON! And you know what's funny? We've been in this house just one week now and the thing that we've made THREE times already is Indian food. I think it was inspired by my beautiful friend, Nicole, who brought me home BOAT LOADS of fresh spices and herbs from some magical international grocery she found in Atlanta... and they really are inspiring. I've never smelled nutmeg so POWERFUL before... ANYWAYS- we're on an Indian kick at the moment and I know that's new to Recitherapy so I thought, "why not?". Let's get on the Indian train, shall we?
This is a really simple curry chickpea and chicken... be mindful that I didn't have a roasted chicken on hand, otherwise I would have used that. But baking chicken breasts will work just fine, as well.
2 chicken breasts or 4 tenderloins, seasoned with LOTS of salt, pepper, curry powder and Indian masala garam
(or just use roughly 2 cups of shredded and seasoned roast chicken)
drizzle of olive oil
1/2 yellow onion, diced thinly
3-5 cloves garlic, minced
a little fresh ginger, finely chopped or minced
1 & 1/2 cup chickpeas
1 cup frozen chopped spinach
3 whole carrots, diced in discs or small bits
3 chicken bouillon cubes, dissolved in 3 cups boiling water
1 big dollop greek yogurt
3 teaspoons curry powder
1 & 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1 & 1/2 teaspoon cumin
more salt and pepper to taste
1 cup cooked basmati, white or even jasmine rice
Okay! This whole process from start to finish is a "toss in and keep goin' " method, so don't feel like you've got to be on any one step for too long.
**if you're baking chicken, preheat your oven to 375, line a baking dish with foil and put your chicken on, drizzle olive oil and all those seasonings all over the top and bake uncovered for just under an hour. then dice it so it's ready to be added to the mixture.**
More delicious recipes and maybe some photos of the stove shortly. ;)
