This week I was thinking that a butter chicken or a curry would feel good to our bellies. When having a cheat day, I LOVE buttered chicken from the Taste of India restaurant in Seattle!
So, we searched far and wide, and what we found was this great looking Thai Coconut Curry Chicken on the Just Jessie B site.
Just Jessie B is just the best!
This meal didn’t take too much time to prepare, and although our plated picture might not look the best… this meal smells GREAT!!
I also have a podcast coming out soon on how to meal prep for weight loss. If it’s up and live it will be linked to here.
