After having chicken simply pan fried, and then having it once its been marinated for several hours, I don’t know why I would ever go back. It is so easy to make chicken interesting with simple ingredients and practically no work. I always have tasty chicken in my fridge to throw on top of salads, in wraps, or alongside quinoa and vegetables. After marinating for several hours I throw in a tin foil lined baking dish (yay no clean up!) in 350 degree oven till chicken is cooked.
-2 cups cilantro
-3 green chilies
-1 cup thai basil (I didn’t have and was great without)
-1 heaping tbsp fresh ginger
-3 garlic cloves
-3 stalks lemon grass (look for an asian grocery store)
-1 tbsp ground coriander
-1 tsp tumeric
-juice from 1 lime
-1 tsp lime zest
-2-3 tbsp olive oil
Blend all in high speed blender, (I have vita-mix but you could do in magic bullet). Marinate for 6-24 hours.
*If you want to have as an entree, mix with 1 can coconut milk and desired vegetables such as mushrooms, peas, edamame…etc. Lentils, linguine or quinoa would go well as a side.
