Curry in a Hurry: East Meets West

Curry in a Hurry

When I was pregnant, I often found myself craving the rich, flavorful dishes from my travels to the East. But with gestational diabetes, I had to be careful. That's when I came up with this Curry in a Hurry. It was a quick and easy dish that satisfied my cravings without spiking my blood sugar. Plus, it was a hit with my family too!

A quick and easy curry dish that combines tender chicken, vibrant vegetables, and a flavorful curry sauce, all while being gestational diabetes-friendly.

  • 4 Chicken Breasts
  • 1 jar of Trader Joe’s Thai red curry sauce
  • 2 cups of mixed vegetables (like bell peppers, broccoli, and carrots)

  • Salt and Pepper to taste
  • Brown rice, white rice, or cauliflower rice for serving
  1. Heat the olive oil in a pan over medium heat. Add the chicken breasts, season with salt and pepper, and cook until no longer pink in the middle. Remove from the pan and let them rest for a few minutes, then slice into thin strips

  2. In the same pan, add the mixed vegetables and cook until they're tender

  3. Return the sliced chicken to the pan with the vegetables. Pour the curry sauce over the top and stir to combine
