I was originally planning on posting a new recipe every day, but that somehow didn’t work out :) however I have an amazing recipe for you guys today that I did on wednesday. It’s really super easy to make, so don’t feel intimidated and give it a try at home even if it’s your first time cooking.
5 cups of baby carrots, 1/2 cup of roughly chopped ginger, 2 white onions (yellow onions are ok as well), 1 orange, 1 can of coconut milk, 2 cups of chicken broth, extra virgin olive oil, cumin, cinnamon, nutmeg, salt, pepper and…
…chicken breasts (I used 5 pieces). Start by cutting the breasts into cubes and season them with salt and pepper.
Heat up about 2 tblsp of olive oil in a pot and add the chicken pieces. Saute until the chicken is golden and throughly cooked. Set aside, cover with a lid.
Chop roughly the 2 onions.
Peel the ginger and chop into small pieces. You should have 1/2 of a cup.
Add the onions and ginger into the pot and saute until the onions start to turn slightly brown.
Add about 1tsp of cinnamon and 1tsp of cumin and mix it well.
Now you will need 2 cups of chicken broth. There are all kinds of chicken broth that you can buy, I use the one that you have to mix with hot water.
Pour the chicken broth into the pot and stir for about a minute.
Take 5 cups of baby carrots…
…and chop them into small pieces.
Add the carrots into the pot and cook until they’re soft.
Once the carrots are cooked, add 1 can of coconut milk, mix it all well, turn off the heat and set aside.
Peel the orange and chop it into smaller pieces. Add it to the pot. Once the mixture in the pot cools down a little, you can use the food processor and make a puree.
Add the chicken into the pot, and seson with salt and pepper according to your own taste.
I added 2 tblsp of sour cream at the end just to give it really smooth flavour. I noticed that some of you guys were dissapointed to see that I use fatty sour cream and cheeses in my recipes, but I do that for 2 reasons:
1) I love it :)
2) If I didn’t eat any fat, I would have no fat to burn during my workouts.
The key is to never binge or over eat. That’s my rules anyways.
I garnished my meal with chopped green onions and a dash of nutmeg.
It looks so beautiful!
I ate my first portion just like this, but I made a basmati rice as a side dish for the dinner.
