Very quick and super tasty recipe.

I’ve roasted the meat in the marinade and added the other igredients. I scaled down the recipe for 2 serving and I reduced the orzo to 1/2 cup, but I kept the broth quantity to 1 1/2 cups. I finished the dish with sliced preserved lemon and WOW! That was so good!

Sunny’s Lemon Curry Chicken

sunnys-lemon-curry-chickenSuper delicious! I prepared the sauce as described. I used skinless chicken legs, and I coated them with egg and breadcrumbs (as we don’t corn flakes for breakfast) and I mixed the remaining egg with breadcrumbs and I pressed this over the legs. As a light crust was formed I turned the chicken and I brushed it with the sauce. It turned out crunchy and super tasty. Next time I will double the the sauce fir more liquid


1/2 cup sugar
4 tablespoons lemon juice
1 1/2 teaspoons curry powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1 egg, beaten
1 cup corn flake crumbs
1 chicken (cut up) or 1 assorted chicken piece, your choice

Herbed Chicken Paillards


This is the kind of food I really enjoy very much!
The winter is approaching and I was lucky that I could find all the herbs (except the thyme) in my garden. The marjoram is drying and I will see this only next spring again, but I found some more protected sprigs which I could use.
The long marinating enhanced the herbs flavor and gave the dish the last warm rays of the season. Thanks a lot for this great recipe


  • 1/3 cup olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons minced fresh parsley
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh thyme
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons minced fresh rosemary
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons minced fresh sage
  • 1 teaspoon grated lemon rind
  • 3/4 teaspoon minced fresh marjoram
  • 3/4 teaspoon minced fresh savory
  • Ground allspice, 1 pinch
  • Ground red pepper, 1 pinch
  • 4 (1 1/3 pound) boneless skinless chicken breast halves
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • Garnish
  • Lemon wedges

Tom Kha Kai – Light Version


Tom Kah Kai  is one of our favorite soups and we really have this several times per year.

The recipe I reviewed is a light version, posted by Linky, in which most of the ingredients are dry and for this reason it is almost a ready made version.

For my recipes with fresh herbs I keep the herbs in the freezer, but if they are not available, you will be more than happy with this recipe which makes the almost impossible to possible.

For this recipe I replaced the ground kaffir lime leaf by one lime peel in the soup and discarding it before serving. I used a small tin canned mushrooms, for the broth I used “normal” broth where added 3 very thin slices ginger.

Suggestion: place lemon grass in an empty tea bag while cooking for easy removing.


  • 1 quart thai ginger infused broth, I used normal broth but I added 3 thin slices ginger
  • 1/2 cup red pepper, cut in matchsticks
  • 1/2 cup mushroom, sliced thinly, I used canned ones
  • 1/2 cup green onion, cut diagonally
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground kaffir lime leaf, replaced by the lime peel which I removed before serving
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground galangal
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried lemon grass, can be placed in a paper tea bag for easy removing
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice, I used fresh
  • 2 tablespoons cilantro, chopped
  • 1 chicken breast, cut in strips
  • 1 (14 ounce) cans light coconut milk
