We had another quick and easy dish from Healthy One-Dish Meals in Minutes last night.
It is a book worth buying. The recipes will come in handy at times when you feel so brain-dead, you cannot think up ingredients in your head, let alone put them together and transform them into something consumable.
I improvised, as always. So, here's my version:
Cook 3 1/2 ounces of angel hair pasta (or rice-stick noodles) for 3 minutes in a pot of boiling slightly salted water, and drain.
Cook chicken (6 ounces boneless, skinless and cubed), onion (1 medium, chopped), carrot (1 large, chopped), scallions (3, chopped), chicken broth (3 tablespoons) and soy sauce (2 tablespoons) in a pan under medium heat for 5 minutes. In the regular, tastier version, shrimp is generally added.
Stir in curry powder (1 1/2 teaspoons), salt (as needed), pepper (1 teaspoon), water chestnuts (1 can - 8 ounces) and ground ginger (1 teaspoon). Cook for 5 minutes. Add to pasta.
