I have a client whose children don't care for sweet peppers, so I thought I'd give this a whirl. It turned out really great, and my first child found only one piece just a bit too spicy to finish.
2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into bite-sized pieces
3 c. finely sliced zucchini (I used my ceramic slicer from Epicure)
1 small yellow onion, sliced thinly
3 garlic cloves, sliced thinly
1.5 tbsp olive oil
1 tbsp yellow curry powder
1/2 tsp sea salt
1-2 sprigs fresh basil (or dried, about a tsp)
1 tbsp cornstarch
1/2 c. chicken broth
1-2 tbsp coffee cream (I use half and half)
Prepare everything before starting to cook.
Set your olive oil, onions, garlic, and chicken in a skillet and turn the heat to medium-high. Allow to cook until the chicken is slightly cooked, then add the spices and zucchini. Cook on low, stirring occasionally, until the zucchini starts to soften and separate from the other pieces.
Stir in the cornstarch and chicken broth, and increase heat. When boiling and thickened, allow to simmer on low until the chicken is completely cooked through, only another few minutes. Turn off the heat, and add the cream. Serve with rice. I served ours with brown basmati. Unfortunately, there are no leftovers for lunch tomorrow!
1-500g. package of extra lean ground turkey
3/4 c. quick oats
1 medium/large carrot
1 tbsp soy sauce
1 tsp sesame oil
1/2 tsp ground ginger
1/2 tbsp chia seeds
1 tbsp dried onions
2 minced garlic cloves
Finely grate carrot into bowl. Add the rest of the ingredients, and mix well. Shape into meatballs, or to use cookie cutter, place cookie cutter on desired baking sheet and stuff with meat mixture. Remove cookie cutter, and repeat. These bites left almost no grease behind on the baking sheet. I would suggest using parchment paper.
Bake at 350* for about 30-35 minutes, or until internal temperature is at least 165*F.
Served with brown rice, stir fried vegetables, fresh beet greens, naval oranges, and hoisin sauce.
