Curry Chicken w/ Roasted Garlic Toast

Today's meal is Chicken Curry with potatoes with Roasted Garlic Toast.

Anyone who has eaten at my place would know that my garlic toast is first class. And even myself who is TECHNICALLY not eating bread bc of the carb levels will be having some slices today bc its just TOO GOOD! And I'll share how to make garlic bread Pam's way here.

Whats in todays Chicken Curry?

1 chicken *chopped*
1 pack of curry paste
5 potatoes *diced big*
2 onions * cut into quarters*
1 small pack of coconut milk.
1 cup of boiled water.
Sprinkle Paprika, white pepper and black pepper on top of curry upon serving.

Optional: Dark soya sauce upon serving *my hubby, CJ always takes his curry sprinkled w dark soya sauce* and boiled vegetables by the side for some daily greens.

Heat oil. Pour in curry paste and stir fry it till fragrant. Add in onions & pototoes and stir fry for around 5 minutes. Add chicken pieces, stir for another 5 minutes then add in water and coconut milk. Blend well, cover pot and leave to boil on high for 8-10 minutes & turn it to low heat and leave to simmer for 20-30 minutes stirring occassionally.

Pam's Roasted Garlic Toast
*recipe enough for 1 standard size baguette*

4 large whole bulbs of fresh garlic
White Pepper
Black Pepper
Italian Seasoning
Olive Oil
1 tsp of granulated Sugar

Slice off the top 1/4 of the garlic bulbs and season open top with all the dry ingredients liberally and drizzle olive oil on top of cloves.

Place them into toaster for 10 minutes till the garlic turns fragrant & some sides turn brown.

Pull out of toaster & leave to cool and use a fork to mash out soft roasted garlic from its papery skin. Throw away the papery skin. Mash soft garlic and add 5 large tablespoons of butter *SCS* or margarine *I use meadow lea* and blend together.

Season to taste with more of the above dry ingredients and slap them onto to sliced french bread aka baguettes and toast for 2 minutes till bread becomes hot & crispy.

This can be made in advance and put in the fridge and toasted when required.

What you get is a heady deep flavourful roasted garlic sweetness with fluffy crispy toasted bread that can go with curry/pasta/chicken and whatever you eat garlic bread with.

Low carb option: Don't drink the curry, eat up the chicken pieces. And no touching the potatoes. Eat all the vegetables.

Enjoy! :)
