Hey Sailors, Chefs, Gourmands, and the otherwise beneficiaries of good cooking...in the interest of fun, what are some of your favorite foods, dishes, meals while cruising?
One of my most memorable and favorite dishes was a Curry Chicken I was cooking as we were entering Swan Creek in Rock Hall. The curry was simmering gently in the galley.
This is an easy dish to assemble and only uses ONE pot. Gotta love that eh.
1 # Chicken Thighs, skin removed
2 ea. Sweet Onions, sliced thin
6-8 ea Garlic cloves, sliced thin
1 ea. Carrot, small dice
2 cups Peas
1 cup Long Grain Rice (Basmati is my favorite)
2 cups Chicken Broth/Stock/Bouillon
Rub curry on chicken and let marinate. Heat pot, add olive oil and brown chicken. Add onions & carrots and lightly brown. Add garlic, rice, and lightly toast. Add broth, cover pot, and cook for 15 minutes. Add peas and continue to cook for 3-5 minutes or until rice and peas are cooked to your desire.
Hope you try it and enjoy it. Substitute chicken with or add; shrimp, lobster, clams, mussels, or most anything else, just a couple of my favorites. Of course lots of other ingredients could be added, as they say, there are as many curries as their are stars in the sky.
