Curried Coconut Chicken

coconut-chicken-curry

Curried chicken is a quick, crowd-pleasing one-pot dinner that’s great for a weeknight.

In this recipe, the exotic combination of curried chicken simmered in coconut and tomato stew makes for a mouthwatering and really amazing dish with wonderful depth of flavor.

Frankly, this curried coconut chicken goes right among the top dishes on my chicken favorites list, it really is so good.

Feel free to serve it over steaming hot rice or with vegetables. Yum!

And for an extra special experience, try throwing in a few cashews, I think that might work just great.

For more details, please see the full recipe below.

Enjoy!

Swedish Cream With Berries

swedish-creme-with-berries-recipe

Whether you are preparing for a special occasion or just a regular meal time at home, this Swedish Cream could be a great choice of a dessert for you. Served in a glass, looking all elegant and spectacular with bright juicy berries on top, you can totally keep it a secret that only very little effort has actually been needed to make it.

 
 

swedish-creme-with-berries

Swedish Cream is a rich, silky and creamy combination of sweetened heavy cream and sour cream, with a lovely touch of vanilla flavor.

There are quite a few variations of this recipe one can find, some using gelatine for extra stability. But as I found out, when properly chilled, the recipe I made gets all creamy and firm anyway. To lighten up the dessert a little, you can replace sour cream with plain white yogurt.

 
 

swedish-creme-with-berries-recipe

To top my Swedish Cream, I used a combination of raspberries and blueberries.

However, feel free to use any of your favorite fruits, and it’ll still be just as delicious, I am sure.

For an extra special experience, serve with a little bit of crushed ladyfingers as a base and sprinkled on top.
