Kaffir Lime Curried Fried Rice

Allergy Free, Organic Kaffir Lime Curried Fried Rice

This was a fun experiment that I thought I would share. I was scrolling through Good Eggs a while back, and came across Kaffir Limes, sometimes called Makrut Limes. Whenever there’s something new listed, I like to read the descriptions, and this one really caught my attention. It said that it would be the perfect addition to a good curry. I went about making our Sweet Curry Chicken Fried Rice, but also added the juice from the limes, as well as lime zest! The kids said it was too lime-y, and the wished I had left it out. What do they know? They’re just children with childish palates. But seriously, I may have overdone it with the limes a tad bit. When there’s a recipe in place, I’m sure we’ll write all about it. Until then, here are some fun pictures to look at. Hopefully this will give you ideas on how to bring new flavors into your kitchen 🙂

Allergy Status: Gluten Free, Wheat Free, Dairy Free, Egg Free, Soy Free, Nut Free, Peanut Free, Yeast Free, Refined/Cane Sugar Free, Diabetic Friendly

Ingredients:
2 Organic Chicken Breasts, cubed
10 ounces Organic Diced Onion
8 TBSP Dairy Free Butter
16 ounce bag Frozen Organic Peas & Carrots
Cooked Organic Brown Rice
Organic Maple Sugar (to taste)
Organic Curry Powder (to taste)
Sea Salt (to taste)
Organic Kaffir Limes (juice and zest)

The instructions are simple, the best kind, right? Start with a large non-stick pan on high heat and cook your chicken. When it’s half way done, add the onions. When the chicken is just about done, add the butter, vegetables, and seasonings. The frozen veg will drop the temperature, so you can mix as the pan heats again. After about 8 minutes, allow the mix to simmer together for another ten minutes before adding the rice. Stir (quite a bit) to make sure everything is well incorporated. I opted to top with a little lime zest in addition to the zest in the mix. When I do this again, I’m sure I’ll use about 1 teaspoon of lime juice, and little zest for garnish. Happy cooking (and experimenting)!
