Dinner Ideas, Easy Dinners, One Pot Meals, Asian Dinner, Healthy Dinner

I’ll admit, my friend Caleb got me hooked on this dinner about 7 years ago… and he coined the title “Winner Winner Asian Dinner!” Jesse and I used to make it all the time but haven’t in a while. Tonight I made it again, and remembered why we loved it sooooo much – it’s DELISH! I don’t measure a lot of things when I cook & bake, so a lot of these measurements are guesstimates… I just “add a tad of this, and a tad of that…” and see how it goes :)

Winner Winner Asian Dinner  

Servings: I’d say it would serve about 4 adults

Ingredients:

  • 4 large chicken breast, sliced and/or diced
  • 3-4 large peppers, diced (any colours, I used 2 red and 1 orange for this one)
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 1 tbsp garlic, minced
  • 1/4 cup or 1/2 cup (approx) sweet chilli sauce
  • 1-2 tbsp. (approx) peanut sauté sauce
  • 1 can (227 mL) sliced water chestnuts, drained
  • 1 cup Jasmin rice
  • 1 can (400mL) Light Coconut Milk
  • 3 green onions, chopped
  • Sesame Seeds
  • 1 bag raw bean sprouts, washed and drained

–> cook rice in coconut milk (I use the rice cooker, but use whatever you like!). I start this first, so it’s done just in time for the chicken mixture.

–> cook diced chicken in large saucepan with a touch of extra virgin olive oil. When fully cooked, drain any extra fat or moisture. 

–> slice peppers and onion, and once chicken is cooked through, add peppers to mixture. Add garlic. Stir and cook together. 

–> add sweet chilli sauce and peanut sauce sauce to mixture, stir, and put lid on to cook (over Medium heat or so).

–> add water chestnuts to mixture just to warm (about 2 minutes or so) and stir. The rice should be just about done at this time too.

–> to serve: spoon rice onto plate or bowl and cover in the chicken mixture. Top with raw bean sprouts, sesame seeds, and some chopped green onions. For a little extra crunch, add some French friend onions salad toppers and voila! Done :)

ENJOY!!

This lovely family has grown just a little since I last saw them! I went to high school with Amy, her and her hubby are part of Bergen Farms, and she’s also a fellow photographer here in Abbotsford – Amy Joy Photography – check out her beautiful work! Amy had her eye on this amazing spot, and when the blooms came out and we had a sunny evening – we went for it! These guys are all so much fun – their boys are energetic full of life (I think Spencer spent most of the time jumping!) and little Laurel was full of smiles the whole time :) Glad we got this when we did – these blooms didn’t stay around for long – what a beautiful backdrop for a few updated photos of them all!
