A random entry from Our Family Recipes

() Even More Yummy Recipes: I made the best dinner ever tonight. I love this great curry we get at this Thai restaurant in town. Little did I know that when I got a recipe for coconut curry sauce on Food 911 the other day I would be making something just as yummy!

Here is the Susie-fied version, extended from a sauce into a delicious meal! I only used about half of the sauce to feed me and John. Remember to shake and stir your coconut milk before using... trust me on this one.

Coconut Curry Chicken
¼ c. coconut
1 T curry powder
1 c. chicken stock
1 c. coconut milk
1 c. cashews

Mix with nifty hand blender.

Everything Else
3 potatoes, peeled and cubed
1 onion, diced
chicken, cubed
1 c. peas

Boil potatoes until tender.  Cook onion in olive oil.  Add chicken.  When chicken is cooked, add sauce, peas and potatoes.  Cover and boil for a while.  Serve over rice.

I don't understand why recipes call for 1 cup or 2 cups of something that comes in a 14 oz can. What do you do with the extra? We have plenty of room in our fridge so I kept it. For now.
