I just love Golden Curry :)… It’s so easy to make! Stir-fry some meat and veggies, add a little water and then add a couple blocks of curry. Suddenly you have a delicious meal that only took about 15-20 min to prepare. I always like to keep some cooked rice frozen in my fridge (in portion sizes) so when I’m in a hurry I can just microwave it.
Well here’s a picture of my lunch. Obviously I used Golden Curry with chicken, carrots, frozen peas, and onions. I also added a little bit of chopped garlic and ginger when i was cooking the chicken. Didn’t take much time to make and I only had to use one pot, so cleaning up was easy.

Kim Wah bbq, usually delicious food, but their lemon chicken is so delicious… The lemon sauce was awkwars tasting, like old… Kinda not exactly lemon. And the chicken was way over cooked. Cheese ragoon, barely any cheese but the egg roll wasnt bad! Over all id just stick to basic dinner menu, authentic chinese menu is definitely the way to go at Kim Wah.

Curry Chicken today! This one is super simple… First prepare the ingredients as shown below. I had some left over zucchini from my vegetable fried rice so I decided to throw that in as well. You can use almost any vegetable you have in your fridge, that’s what makes this so simple! (Pictured: chicken, 1/4 onion, zucchini, 2 cloves of garlic)
Next step is to sauté the vegetables starting with the vegetable that takes the longest to cook, in this case the zucchini.
Finally, I like to use half milk half water for this recipe to give the curry a little creamy texture. So to this I added 3/4c of water and 3/4c of milk and 2 squares of Golden Curry. I added the chicken last because it was already cooked and I didn’t want to break up the pieces too much. Salt to taste and then serve hot over a bowl of rice! I added some chili oil for an extra kick.

Time for lunch! Chicken salad. Now I know there are several ways to make this. I heard from a friend that they make theirs with toasted almonds and cranberries! However, this is how I make chicken salad.
Take the left over chicken that you already chopped into small pieces. Add to that the desired amount of mayo, relish, half of an onion diced, salt and pepper to taste. I generally start with about 1/4 cup of mayo or about 3-4 big tablespoons of mayo. I also add either a little Dijon mustard or Marzetti brand slaw dressing for a little extra flavor. I didn’t have any of that available today so I adjusted
Mix all ingredients together, place on your favorite bread with lettuce and tomatoes (optional) and enjoy!
(oh and sometimes toasting the bread is a nice touch =])

While the first day of this chicken week takes a lot of prep/cook time, the rest of the week will be a breeze! [Quick Tip: If you don’t want to spend hours preparing the chicken, buy a roast chicken at your local supermarket! They’re pretty inexpensive]
Season chicken with 2 parts onion powder, 2 parts garlic powder, 1 part thyme and enough soy sauce to cover the chicken.
Next (if you have the time) let sit in the fridge for a couple hours. Take out of the fridge about 15 minutes before you plan on placing the chicken in the oven. Preheat oven to 350 and roast for about 1hr 30 min depending on how many lbs of chicken you have. Mine took about 1 hr and 45 min (approx 5lbs) . Make sure you cook the chicken breast up so that you get a nice crispy skin
With this I made vegetable fried rice. Basically, rice with bell peppers, zucchini, onion and garlic. I used a little fish sauce, soy sauce and chili pepper for extra flavor. Add the veggies and other ingredients to a hot greased wok in this order; bell pepper and zucchini, onion, garlic, rice, 1 egg, then the sauces and chili.
In order to prep for the rest of the week, I set aside the breast to make pasta and the thighs and other scraps to make chicken salad. I chopped everything up tonight so that this week I won’t have as much work.

Simply prepare any frozen chicken patty. Chop up some onions, slice some tomatoes, wash a few lettuce leaves and throw it between two slices of your favorite bread for a delicious quick meal. To spice things up I added mayo and hot sauce to my bread (spicy mayo recipe here).
