I was more concerned with the OP having an hour to both prepare and eat a chicken breast that was first defrosting. How's that work out?

Wow! These look amazing!! Unfortunately I ran out of time to cook at all because I got sidetracked and ended up eating some cranberry orange bread my roommate had out. :S But thanks so much!! I was in desperate need of some new ideas and now I have all kinds of things to try next week. :)

Smile My SE Asian style chicken breast

This is really easy, but tastes great (or so my wife agrees! ) and only takes 20 minutes from start to table.

Ingredients
1 medium onion
1 knob ginger, according to taste
1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
2 tbsp curry powder (heat according to taste)
2 tbsp soy sauce
1 can coconut milk
2 heaped tbsp peanut butter
2 chicken breasts, cut in thin strips
  1. Slice the onion and ginger into paper thin slices. Saute in the olive oil until soft and golden.
  2. Add curry powder plus soy sauce and fry for about a minute, not letting let it burn.
  3. Add the coconut milk and peanut butter and warm on medium heat until it forms a thickish sauce.
  4. Lastly, add the chicken strips and cook on medium heat for 10 minutes.
Serve with jasmine or brown rice, topped with fresh chopped coriander leaves.

For an extra bit of tang, add some slices of lemongrass stalk when cooking, and then discard.

Enjoy

Mike

I like it! :)

As an alternative to the lemongrass treatment, you can use a rubber mallet and pound the bottom ends of the stalks between two sheets of plastic wrap, then mince some of the pulp and add that to the recipe, no need to remove it then.

We normally make something called Alice Springs Chicken like The Outback Restaurant does. Normally we take a chicken breast and cut it in half depending on how thick the breast is. Then we sprinkle the top and bottom with Season All Salt. We then plac ein a frying pan or grill (if your using a frying pan then add a little oil to the pan just enough to brown the chicken) then we cook some bacon, until crispiness is done to your perfection. Then put the bacon on the top of the chicken breast and Colby & Monterrey jack cheese and then i place it in the microwave to melt the cheese a little. Then serve with honey mustard!

Also I forgot the mention that we cook some chicken breast on a griddle. Then we make a chicken sandwich with Texas Toast, slice of cheese & onion.

I know my post came kinda late, but I figured I would post anyway!

Late is 5 years later. In DC terms one month is barely off "timely."
