Tamarind & Rosemary Chicken Strut

Tamarind & Rosemary Chicken Strut

Introduction

Don't dance with the same old spices in the kitchen--take a new one out for a whirl every once in a while. Then you can come back to the same old foxtrot, two step, or waltz, but at least you haven't died in the same old taste. I mean, place!

    Add 6 oz baby spinach at the end. Cover. Cook 1 min. Toss. Divide into two equal portions. Hearty meal. Whole Food for Whole People. Enjoy.

Tips

I made my own tamarind sauce because I was in an "adventuresome" mood. This can be bought, but I had fun for $.45--for 2 hours! Cheap entertainment!


Directions

As the potatoes cook in microwave, prep the carrots and onions. Tear the chicken into bite sized pieces and weigh out 6 oz of baby spinach. Chop the tomatoes into small pieces. Cook in stages by the size & tenderness of the food, so everything is al dente at the end of cooking.

Serving Size: Makes 2 full dish meals, cooked in one pot.
