Chicken Curry From Scratch
(with available Shortcuts)
Chicken breast is an excellent food because it’s low in fat, and high in protein. But seared chicken can get a little repetitive. Chicken Curry to the rescue! This recipe contains no sweeteners other than coconut milk. The only added fat is a mere 2 TBL of butter per serving.
Coconut Chicken Curry is essentially Ghee, Garam Marsala, tomatoes, coconut milk, chicken stock, and aromatics. Healthy right? Not quite, your typical restaurant will pour in about a pound of butter for 6 chicken breasts. Considering most athletes might eat 1.5 pieces of chicken, that’s one stick of butter per serving! And you wonder why Indian and Thai food will make you gain weight. Truth be told, 1/4 stick of Ghee is enough, and that’s what we’ll base the following recipe on.
How bad is one stick of butter anyway? Very. It’s worth 840 calories and 58 grams of saturated fat which is about 300% over your daily recommended allowance.
