Cocunut Curry Thai Chicken
Wow, I've been off the blog-wagon for a while now. There are a few reasons for my lapse, not the least of which is that my oven can't get above 350 degrees and my landlord doesn't understand why that's a problem. Anyway, I've had a few people indicate that they missed my blog lately, and dinner tonight was so delicious and pretty, that, well, here I am!
Like many of you, I have been watching "The Next Food Network Star." I have mixed feelings about the program. While I think it's interesting to see how they make a cooking show (it looks so hard!), I wish there was more about the actual cooking they're doing. Anyway, last night one of the contestants made this recipe: Coconut Curry Thai Chicken and I thought it sounded appealing, so I tried it tonight. Of course, I made a few changes, mostly so that I could avoid a trip to the grocery store. I used fresh red peppers because I had them, and I omitted the water chestnuts because I don't care for them. I also added a couple of tablespoons of yogurt to the sauce to thicken it, and served it over egg noodles instead of whole wheat linguine since that's what I had in the pantry. It was such a hit that my husband said, "You should really post this on your blog." So here it is!
