Thai Yellow Chicken Curry Pizza

What do you do when you are in the mood for Thai and pizza? Make Thai pizza of course! I didn’t really know what I was doing when I started out, but it turned out so good that I will definitely be making it again! I”m thinking next time I might try shrimp instead of chicken and see how that tastes!

What I did was cooked up the sauce first. A can of coconut milk ( i use the light kind) and about 2-3 tbsp of yellow curry paste ( or whatever paste you have;red,yellow, green.. I happened to have some yellow on hand). Simmer that over medium heat.

Cut up 2 chicken breasts into bite size pieces, add to the sauce. Add 2 tbsp of fish sauce and 2 tbsp of brown sugar. I like to add some lime juice as well. I used half a lime. Cook until the chicken is done.

Using a slotted spoon separate the chicken into a bowl and toss in the fresh basil. This was the first time I’ve used my basil from the garden and it smelled so nice!! (tasted great too)

Cook the remaining sauce and reduce by half or so. This is when I really wasn’t sure what to do and if you can think of something better please let me know! I poured some of the sauce onto my pizza crust, I used a premade flatbread. YOu don’t want to pour on to much that it soaks through the crust, but enough to get some flavour and that the pizza won’t be to dry. Add the chicken and basil on top, then sprinkle with mozzarella cheese, or whatever cheese you want! Cook away!

We had a nice baby spinach salad for a side dish. To make that all I use is some baby spinach leaves, some bean sprouts and some mushrooms. I used an olive oil balsamic vinegar dressing. Yum!

Enjoy and let me know how yours turns out!

Thursday in the Kitchen

Again not a whole lot of time for cooking this week, but I did manage to whip together a Curry Chicken Masala Pizza. I totally winged it, and tossed some things together that I thought would be good. And yup.. it was!

First off I grilled some chicken breasts seasoned with salt and peper

Once that was done, I cut the chicken into bite size pieces and cooked it in some Sharwoods Tikka Masala sauce.

Now normally I like to make my own sauces but when you don’t have a lot of time.. jarred sauces can be a life saver!

The crust is a pre bought President’s Choice Stonebaked flatbread. Drizzled some olive oil over it, and sprinkled that with some curry spice. ( well a little more then sprinkled… to your taste)

Add the chicken ( if you like it saucy add the sauce as well.. I didn’t)

Then I tossed on some pineapple chunks, red onion, mushrooms, cheddar cheese and mozzerella.

Oven 450F for about 10 -15 mins.

Enjoy!
