CURRIED CHICKEN THIGHS

20130911-190638.jpg

Can you tell I’ve been watching a lot of Master Chef???? Hehe!

Well, I’m certainly not on that level, but it just goes to show you, that if you put a little effort and imagination into it, you can put your own artwork……on a plate! I think it makes the food taste better too! After all, we start eating with our eyes! That’s when all that gooey saliva builds up in your mouth and starts oozing down the side of your face! 🙂 Tell me that’s never happened to you……and if it hasn’t………I feel very sorry for you! 😦

This is a super easy and fast recipe. Oh and did I mention mouth wateringly tasty ???

About Angie's Food Adventures

I thought I could cook in my early twenties, then I found out that Mac and Cheese and Ham Steaks wasn't really cooking. Then I met some vegetarians and tried that for a while. Learned a lot. In my thirties I started craving my Italian roots so I started really paying attention to family recipes. By the time I was 40 I had gained about 20 lbs and had my first gallbladder attack. Note to self: simple carbs are not for me! That's when my journey into healthy eating began. Since then, I've read and researched and read....I've tried a lot of diets and lifestyles and I can honestly say, I've finally established my own way of cooking and preparing food that agrees with me, still keeping to my roots and beyond!
