Creamy Chicken Salad

One of the simplest recipes I've probably ever made. It's was a great hit anyway!

Creamy Chicken Salad

2 cups cooked chicken, cubed
1 pint cherry tomatoes, halved
1/4 cup plain yogurt
1/2 cup cubed mangos
1 tbsp White Pineapple Balsamic
2 tbsp Blood Orange Olive Oil
2-3 tbsp pickled jalapenos

Whisk the yogurt, olive oil and balsamic together in a large bowl. Fold in the rest of the ingredients and serve.

Coconut Curry and a Coupon

I had some small potatoes leftover from the Mint and Lemon Potatoes I made a bit ago. They are potatoes, so they stay good for a long time, but I felt the urge to use them up.

Coconut Curry

1 can coconut milk
1 tbsp Chipotle Olive Oil
1 onion, diced
1 cup peas
1/2 pint grape tomatoes, quartered
2 cups diced potato
1/4 cup thick coconut flake, chopped
1 tbsp curry powder
a pinch of allspice
1 tsp black pepper
Spicy Curry Sea Salt to taste
thin toasted coconut for garnish

Add the olive oil to a large shallow pan and heat to medium. Cook the diced onion until it starts to caramelize, 2-4 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add the potato and the coconut milk and stir. Be sure to scrape up anything that has stuck to the pan. Stir in the coconut flake and let simmer for 6-10 minutes. If your potato pieces are small, it shouldn't take very long.

Add the spices, the peas and the tomato, stirring until it is all mixed. Simmer until the peas are tender, 2-5 minutes.

Serve with a sprinkle of toasted coconut.
