Secret Ingredient # 1!!! Why I call this dish: The Simple Indian

20130711-163707.jpg
Sauté Organic Chicken Thighs in Organic Coconut Oil (or substitute Tofu, etc) Add a Dash of Salt & Pepper. Throw in a garlic clove for good measure! Repeat until all thighs are browned. If cooking more than 3, do in separate batches so chicken will brown evenly. Don’t crowd the pan! Remove from pan and place aside.

In the pan the Chicken Thighs were cooked in, (so we have all the YUMMY bits in the bottom of the pan!!!!!!!) place the rough chopped onions, red pepper, carrots and lime (cut side down). Sauté a few minutes.

Secret # 2
The Tagine
Simmer. Simple. Stovetop or Oven. Slow and Low. Will create moist, delicious, tender meat. Seriously. Go buy one, or another type of clay pot. They will change your recipes completely in Indian, African, Middle Eastern, etc cuisine.

I made Organic Whole Wheat Cous Cous to serve with dinner and mixed in about 1/3 cup of the Trader Joes Red Curry Sauce at the end of cooking…right before letting the CousCous sit for a few minutes before serving.

Top with Fresh Chopped Organic Cilantro before serving. Mix. Serve Immediately. We ❤ cilantro. Use as much or as little as you want.
