A Busy Day's Dinner Dilemma

I had grand plans for dinner the other night - only to realize at 4:30 that the day had gotten away from me. My son is hungry for dinner by about 5 pm so crunch-time was on! I looked in the fridge with a blank stare - tons of food but all of it required prep time. So I grabbed some plain yogurt, chicken breasts, Korma Curry Rub, carrots, maple syrup, butter gso and rice. In a matter of 30 minutes I managed to pull together a yummy meal and here's how I did it...

1. Cooked 1 cup of jasmine rice, 2 cups of water and a splash of butter gso in a sauce pan.

2. Combined almost a cup of plain yogurt with 2 Tbsp Korma Curry Rub and slathered it on the chicken breasts. I heated some natural gso in a saute pan and cooked the chicken on medium heat.

3. Lastly, I peeled and cut carrots up and placed them in a small pan with boiling water for a couple minutes. I drained the pan and drizzled the carrots with maple syrup and butter.

Dinner Was Ready...Mission Accomplished!

  1. I bought some of the Korma Curry Rub but was disappointed to find that there weren't specific recipes on the package. I can cook by taste but needed an idea for a jumping off point the first time out. Just opening the jar, this stuff smells heavenly. Thanks! I can't wait to try it.
