Grilled Red Curry Chicken Over Cranberry And Sweet Golden Raisin Couscous

on March 13, 2014

To start this dish I use 4 boneless and skinless chicken breast which I butterflied and completely cut each breast into 2 thinner breasts giving me a total of 8 chicken breasts. I first 1 1/2 tablespoons of cumin seeds and 3 cloves of garlic that I placed into a mini food processor with just a little grape seed oil to make a chunky like paste. I have to tell you now that I’m still learning about this “blogging thing”,  I have it down on how to edit my text, and I, just learned how to type between the pics, stupid right?, but to insert a pic where I want it, is still a mystery to me. I’m working on this so if the pics are a little out of order I’m so sorry.Image

At this point I mixed in 2 cups of plain Greek yogurt, 3 tablespoons of red curry paste, 1 tablespoon of light brown sugar, and 1 teaspoon of kosher salt to the spice mixture above. I mixed all of the ingredients above until they were well combined and then put the 8 chicken breast into a large plastic resealable bag and poured the yogurt mixture on top. I placed this into the frig for around 6 hours. The yogurt works as a great tenderizer for the chicken.ImageImage

After the 6 hours, I then grill them on in indoor grill pan for 3-4 minutes on the first side and around 2-3 minutes on the other side. When I finished all 8 chicken breast I placed the on a baking sheet covered with foil and put them in a 250 degree oven to keep them warm. Then it’s just a quick dipping sauce which consists of 1 cup of Greek yogurt, 1 teaspoon each of chopped fresh mint and cilantro. One teaspoon of ground cumin, and a pinch of Kosher salt and pepper. Mix that together, then refrigerate, and that’s the dipping sauce. For the Couscous I just bring 1 1/2 cups of  low sodium chicken broth to a boil and add 1/4 cup each of dried cranberries and golden raisins. I let that steep for about 2 minutes before adding 3/4 cup of Couscous2014-03-06 14.01.072014-03-06 13.37.49. Take that off the heat and cover, let stand for around 10 minutes or until all the liquid is absorbed. Fluff with a fork and that’s it.2014-03-06 15.21.532014-03-06 14.56.092014-03-06 15.01.44
