This is quite possibly my new favorite dinner. I am a huge fan of Thai food, so I’m always looking for new ways to use the traditional Thai flavors of fresh coriander, kaffir lime, ginger and garlic in recipes. This dish is more of a “Thai-fusion”, as I’ve combined a richly flavored chicken poached in coconut cream on top of a bed of roasted butternut squash, onions and garlic mash instead of your traditional curry on rice dish. The fresh zesty flavors of the coconut chicken combined with the warm roasted veggies is absolutely brilliant. And although not completely necessary, I highly recommend giving my sugarless “candied” peanuts recipe a try — crush a handful of these sweet and salty nuts and sprinkle on top of this dish as a garnish. Insanely addictive. I’ve already planned to make this one again before the week is over! You may also try serving this on a bed of “Creamed Cauliflower Rice“, which is what I plan to do next time! Yummy.
All I’m gonna say is, this dinner is a winner. The great thing about this recipe, is you can change the spice, nuts, and stuffing to whatever you’d like – this however, was pretty darn good. Here’s the recipe:
I’m going to try and keep this as short and sweet as I can, because the sooner you get this recipe, the better!
This is what I made today for lunch!

This was incredibly delicious, surprisingly filling, and the combination of flavors… well, you just have to try this for yourself! Continue reading
