I purchased the MiniCarb Thai Coconut Cream Low Carb Soup Mix at Big Lots for 39 cents. I had no intention of using it as a soup when I bought it. I wanted to use it for a sauce to make Thai curried chicken. Now, I know that using fresh ingredients is best, but sometimes I want something fast, and this fit the bill.
First, I pounded the 3 lbs. of chicken, then I dragged it through beaten eggs in one bowl and then a nut meal in a second bowl. (More "about nut meals or flour" used for baking or breading here. Note: the more coarse nut meal that is just fine for "breading" is available at Trader Joe's. You must discard the nut meal that has touched the chicken and egg.) I then fried the chicken in butter until there was a nice crust and the chicken was white on the outside.
I took the chicken out of the frying pan and used the same pan to make the soup according to the package directions. I took a quick taste of the soup and thought it was kind of sweet for my taste, but as a base, it was just fine. I then added some sour cream (about 8 oz.) to thicken it and make more sauce. I also added about 2 teaspoons of mild curry paste to make it spicy.
I put the chicken in a baking dish and poured the sauce over it and put it into a preheated 350 degree oven for about 1/2 hour or until it was cooked through.
My husband and daughter both liked it, and my husband ate it for three meals and didn't complain! (This is just unprecedented.)
