I am a newlywed on a budget, just trying to make healthy and inexpensive meals for my husband and I to enjoy. He eats a lot, so cost is a big factor. Though I work 3 jobs, I manage to find time 6 nights a week to cook a full dinner for us both. I am constantly looking for new recipes that are moderately healthy, taste great, and won't break the bank.

On the side, I also own a brownie business called Gersheybars. My passion and love for cooking started when I was just a small child, baking with my mom and grandmother. The brownie recipe has been passed down through 5 generations and I am thrilled to finally have an outlet to share them with everybody else. Friends and family have helped spread the word and made my business as successful as it is today.

Thai Curry Chicken

I can't remember where we found this recipe, but it was floating around the Internet somewhere and I copied it to my files. It is Dee-Licious! We love Thai food and this is probably one of the best Thai-inspired dishes I've made in a long time. It's sweet, slightly spicy and all around really flavorful. It would be great with rice noodles but all I had was rice, so it's what I used.

Ingredients
  • 1 pound skinless, boneless chicken breast halves - cut into 1 inch cubes
  • 1 tablespoon dark soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons cooking oil
  • 2 tablespoons red curry paste
  • 2 green onions with tops, chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, peeled and chopped
  • 1 teaspoon fresh ginger, peeled and finely chopped
  • 2 cups coconut milk
  • 1 tablespoon fish sauce
  • 1 tablespoon dark soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons white sugar
  • 1/2 cup cilantro leaves, for garnish
Directions

1. Toss chicken first in 1 tablespoon dark soy sauce, then in the flour, coating pieces evenly. Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. Place chicken in the skillet, cook and stir chicken until browned, about 5 minutes. Remove chicken.

2. Reduce heat to medium and stir in curry paste. Cook for 1 minute until fragrant, then stir in green onions, garlic, and ginger; cook an additional 2 minutes. Return chicken to the skillet, stirring to coat with the curry mixture. Stir the coconut milk, fish sauce, 1 tablespoon soy sauce, and sugar into the chicken-curry mixture. Allow to simmer over medium heat for 20 minutes until the chicken is tender. Serve garnished with cilantro leaves.
