Chicken Laksa
This recipe is an example of taking a basic recipe and applying it to what you have stocked in the house. It was a cold, gray, snowy day and I was fighting a cold. I was in the mood for something warm inside and this is how I made it work.

Notes:
  1. Pour the coconut milk and stock into a saucepan and stir in the laksa paste. Add the chicken strips and simmer for 10-15 minutes over gentle heat, or until the chicken is cooked through.
  2. Stir in the tomatoes, sugar snap peas, and noodles. Simmer for an additional 2-3 minutes. Stir in the cilantro and serve immediately.
Adaptation notes:
  1. I did not have chicken stock, laksa paste, chicken, tomatoes or snap peas. Nor did I have rice noodles and cilantro.
  2. This is what I had: Coconut milk, beef stock, tomato paste, beef roast, carrots, mushrooms, celery and fresh garlic. I poured the milk and stock in the sauce pan and added a bit of tomato paste. I cut the beef I had and put it in the liquid mixture and began to let it cook for 10-15 minutes or so.
  3. I cut 5 crimini mushrooms, 2 celery stocks, and shredded 1 carrot. Tossed it all in, along with dried instant asian noodles and let it cook for about 5 min. Crushed in some fresh garlic and served the dish. It was a hit! Enjoy.
