Yep, the blog mmm-yoso!!! is where you are. Today, it's Cathy's turn.
Hi. A few weeks ago, I was having lunch with Kirk and Carol and we were brainstorming about different things to blog about. I do cook and eat at home..and I have had this habit, for years, of only buying sale items and making a meal out of them(along with some staples I always have in the house). I was going to do a series of "$5 Fridays" but figured that would obligate me to always be doing something, plus not all of you who read this blog have access to the same stores and sales we do out here in Sunny Southern California...so, I decided to show you some of my easy meals that I am making coincidentally with sale items and post something once a week. Hopefully on Friday.
Oh, and I have been on this 'curry craving' kick lately. Maybe it is just turmeric, since a curry is just a blend of spices, one of them always being turmeric...
Then I mixed : mayonnaise, orange marmalade (assume these are basics in your house), curry powder (bought in the bulk bin at Henry's-one scoop cost 18¢), some fresh lime juice(they are on sale 5/$1 as opposed to 39¢ each for lemons) and some salt and white pepper(again, assume those are basics).
It looks this way because the marmalade has all the skins of the fruit in it, but you can taste and add or subtract the amount of ingredients.
Then I fold the above sauce with the chicken and some green onion tops (25¢ for one bunch this week) until just blended.
Sometimes I chill it, to get the flavors to meld...but depending on the heat of the curry, it doesn't matter...sometimes we just sit down and eat it at room temperature. With rice. Or greens. Or some naan from Trader Joe's.
Cathy's Curried Chicken Salad
3 C cooked diced chicken (or really any meat or fish that is cooked)(leftovers?)
2 green onions, chopped
Put with each other in bowl and set aside.
1/2 C Mayo , 1/2 C orange marmalade, 1 Tbs lemon or lime juice, 1 tsp curry powder, salt and white pepper.
Quick, simple and, at least this week, less than $5 for at least two servings.
