MIX AND MATCH FLAVORS FROM AWARD WINNING AUTHOR
Nautilus Book Award-winning author Corinne Trang brings flavor to the table with her new book SWITCH IT UP. Featuring bold tastes prominently featured in Asian cuisine, Chef Trang challenges the conception of how much food on the plate constitutes a meal – and the amount of power one dish can hold. Featuring a menu with nutrition exchanges approved by The American Diabetes Association, SWITCH IT UP’s recipes replace dinner time standards with small, shareable plates for the whole family, promoting togetherness, balance, and good health. Ignore the allure of safety meals and explore new tastes and harmony in Trang’s new book.
One of the recipes that caught my attention is Curry-Spiced Chicken Breasts. This recipe would be great adapted for the grill. Just picture it served with a crisp salad and some fresh fruit for dessert. Lucky for us, I have been permitted to share the recipe.
Curry-Spiced Chicken Breasts from Switch It Up
- 3 tablespoons olive oil 1
- tablespoon curry powder
- 1 tablespoon grated garlic
- 1 tablespoon grated ginger
- Salt and pepper to taste
- 2 pounds boneless and skinless chicken breast 4 halves
Preheat the broiler to “High” for 20 minutes, placing the rack midway in the center of the oven.
In a mixing bowl, stir together the olive oil, curry, garlic, and ginger. Season with salt and pepper. Add the chicken and toss until every piece is coated evenly throughout.
Place the chicken breasts on a baking sheet and broil until the juices run clear and the top is golden, about 10 minutes.
Let rest for 15 minutes before slicing.
Recipe NotesOne of the easiest things to cook is chicken. A versatile protein, it’s the “go-to” for many home cooks. For many, it spells “comfort” whether cooked plain, spiced, or marinated. And the leftovers can be chopped and used for stir-fries as is common in Asian cuisines, or sliced and added to wraps. This recipe is a great way to make use of curry powder, here further enhanced with garlic and ginger. ©2017 by Corinne Trang. Reprinted with permission from The American Diabetes Association.
