Psycho Gym Member Paula makes this recipe from Drop Dead Gorgeous Daily
1 tablespoon coconut oil or ghee
1 large onion, thinly sliced
3 cloves garlic, crushed (or to taste)
1 small fresh red chili, finely chopped
2 tablespoons curry powder (or to taste)
2tbsps coconut oil or ghee
1 boneless, skinless chicken (I used chicken thighs, but you could also use breasts) cut into thin strips
1 cup mango chutney
1 1/2 cups coconut milk or single cream (half and half)
1 bag of baby spinach or some fresh sorrel if you’re lucky
Salt and pepper to taste
Coriander (cilantro) to garnish
Heat the oil or ghee in a large steep-sided frying pan or skillet. Coconut oil or ghee are recommended for Paleo cooking and are absolutely delicious in this dish, but you could also use vegetable oil.
Saute the onions and garlic until soft and then add the chili and curry powder. Fry for a minute or two until the spice become fragrant. Add the chicken strips and saute until brown all over.
Add the mango chutney and coconut milk (or cream) and then cook at a medium heat for about five minutes until the chicken is cooked through. Add a huge heap of spinach or sorrel and continue cooking until the spinach has wilted into the curry. If you’re lucky enough to have some sorrel, the lemony sharpness is perfect for this.
Season to taste and garnish with a little lime and cilantro (coriander). To keep with the Paleo theme, I like to serve this with tiny roasted cauliflower florets, but some Basmati or jasmine rice would obviously work too.
Foam rolling is a crucial part of Psycho Gym's training program. Foam rolling is a form of self myofascial release. Fascia is the surrounding part of muscles that helps everything stay in place. Decreased movement or injury can cause the fascia to become stiff. Foam rolling will help prevent this!
