February 4, 2013—Fearlessly Archived—Still a fun read, price & availability may have changed.
If there is a "comfort food" season, winter is definitely it. When we think "comfort food," stews with hearty sauces are the first things that come to mind. In fact, top of mind for us right now is Trader Joe's Chicken Breast Medallions with Coconut Red Curry Sauce, a Thai-inspired variation on a simple chicken stew.
The red curry flavors here are big and bold—coconut cream, chili, lemongrass, and Thai lime are among the seasonings that round out the rich profile—yet the concept is surprisingly simple—chunks of chicken in a hearty sauce. It's excellent served over rice, quinoa or grains like barley or farro (try our 10 Minute Farro or Barley, and be served quite deliciously without any further embellishment. Of course, you're welcome to embellish as you wish—add peas, sliced bell peppers, florets of Cauliflower, or whatever vegetable suits your mood.
What will really suit your mood is that you can have this entrée-for-two on the table in less than five minutes. We're selling each 16 ounce package for $4.99, every day. You'll find it in our refrigerated case.
