10 Minute Fat Burning Dinner: Coconut Curry Stir Fry

By |

Since being pregnant I have about a 10 minute span in which I go from kind-of-hungry to don’t-talk-to-me-until-I have-food-or-I-may-hurt-you.  If I’m not on top of having food prepped and ready to go, it gets ugly.  Fast.

I’ve been keeping my go-to Spicy & Savory Chicken stocked in the fridge, so I can add it to anything in a moment’s notice.  I’ve also been trying to have veggies prepped, so as to avoid a lot of prep time while having a melt down.  Yes, I have food melt downs.  And I can’t even blame them on pregnancy.  It’s been a problem my entire life.  I recall being 22 years old, home at my moms, laying on the floor crying because my sister chose a restaurant I didn’t want to go to for dinner.  I was too hungry to be rational.  Yes, it’s embarrassing.

But, back to my current dinners. . . . I try to prevent tears and tantrums.  I’m usually successful.

Last night I came home ravenous.  Turned on the stove, put a tablespoon of coconut oil in a big pan, tossed in some veggies, some of my pre-cooked chicken and some coconut curry sauce.  Less than 10 minutes of cook time and dinner was in my mouth and it was DELISH.  In fact, the hubs and I both went back for seconds.  (Seconds on veggies = totally allowed.)

10 Minute Coconut Curry Stir Fry

1 tablespoon organic coconut oil (Yes, it has saturated fat.  Yes, it’s good for you.  I promise.   But that’s another blog post!)
1/2 large organic sweet onion, sliced
1 large organic red pepper, sliced
1/2 bag organic broccoli slaw (I get this at Trader Joes, but have seen it at most stores)
1/2 – 1 whole bag organic spinach
2 Spicy & Savory Chicken Breasts
Coconut Curry Sauce to taste (you can make cleaner homemade curry, but I haven’t mastered that yet, nor did I have the energy to try on this night)
1/4 cup pistachios
Optional: Brown Rice (If I use this, I do Trader Joe’s organic 3 minute microwave rice)

Warm pan with coconut oil. Add in sliced onion and red pepper (the only chopping to be done in this recipe!) After about 3 minutes add broccoli slaw. Add 2-3 tablespoons of Coconut Curry Sauce. Stir in. Add chicken and spinach to warm through. Add more sauce if desired. Serve as is or over brown rice. The broccoli slaw creates a “noodle” feel, so the rice is really not necessary. Sprinkle with pistachios.
