Lean Curry Chicken

Recipes

Ingredients:

– 1 tablespoon Real California butter – 8 green onions, thinly sliced, white separated from dark green tops – 2 garlic cloves, minced – 1 1/2 tablespoons minced fresh ginger – 1 tablespoon curry powder – 1 boneless, skinless uncooked chicken, cut into small chunks* – 4 cups sliced seasonal vegetables, any combination of 3 or 4 vegetables such as green and red bell pepper, carrots, snow peas, zucchini, yellow squash, broccoli, cauliflower or asparagus – 1 3/4 cups chicken stock or 1 can (14-1/2 ounces) chicken broth – 1/4 cup cornstarch – 1 3/4 - 2 cups low-fat 2% Real California milk – Salt and pepper

Directions:

Prepare rice. Meanwhile, melt butter over medium-high heat in a large, shallow pot, or large sauté pan with 2-inch sides. Add the white part of the onions, garlic, ginger and curry powder; cook and stir 1 minute. (Reserve the dark green tops of the onions and serve as a condiment.) Add chicken; cook and stir 2 minutes. Add longer cooking vegetables such as carrots or broccoli and chicken broth. Bring to a boil; reduce heat, and simmer until vegetables are almost tender. Add quicker cooking vegetables such as bell peppers and zucchini; cook several minutes, until almost tender. Mix cornstarch and 1 3/4 cup milk until smooth; add to pot. Bring to a boil; stirring constantly about 1 minute, until mixture thickens. Add more milk if sauce is too thick. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Serve curry with rice and condiments.

chutney

toasted shredded coconut

dry-roasted peanuts or toasted almonds
