Thai Coconut Chicken & Mushrooms Freezer Recipe – Cookin’ with Oils!!

I love Thai flavors and I really wanted to experiment with a new recipe. I also wanted to try out the vitality oils in an Asian inspired recipe.

Basil is my favorite herb! Besides having a wonderful flavor, it also has amazing health benefits and uses.

This is like soy sauce only sweeter and less salty. Very nice umami flavor

5 chicken breast

2 c sliced mushroom

11 oz container of coconut milk

juice of a small lime

4 garlic cloves

1/4 c of peanut butter

small handful fresh basil

2 t sesame oil

tbl of ginger juice or one t powder ginger or 2 tablespoon fresh grated ginger

1/4 c coconut aminos

2 drops  lemon vitality essential oil

1 drop basil vitality essential oil

salt and pepper

3 tbl maple syrup or honey

 

defrost the chicken breast – cut up in small pieces – place in a 1 gallon freezer bag

slice mushrooms* – place in the bag with the raw chicken

add the entire container of coconut milk to the freezer bag

place all other ingredients the into a blender ( I used my hand emulsifier and the cup it came with) – blend well – add mixture to the freezer bag

squish around to make sure the chicken is good and coated – freeze for at least 24 hours

AFTER COMPLETE DEFROST

I cooked mine in a very hot pan, almost like stirfry until the chicken is thoroughly cooked. My daughter hates the texture of crock pot chicken, so i cook it this way.

This recipe will also work in the crock pot – 6 hours on high (depends on your crock pot, this is what works in mine).

I served mine with spaghetti squash. We’re following the Trim Healthy Mama plan and this recipe would be an S meal. It’s low carb and high fat and protein.

This would be good served with steamed rice or noodles if your not watching carbs.

I may try it with riced cauliflower next time.

Enjoy!
