Last week I had reviewed Pacific Food’s tasty Curried Red Lentil Soup. Today for our lunch I made a sauce out of the soup and served it over Jasmine Rice.
Curried Red Lentil Chicken Sauce Over Jasmine Rice
1 cup uncooked Jasmine rice
2 cups Pacific Food’s Curried Red Lentil Soup
1 13-ounce can chicken, drained
1/2 dried berries/raisin blend
1/4 cup natural dried coconut
Pinch red pepper flakes
In a small heavy saucepan bring 2 cups water to a boil. Add in the rice, stir well, cover tightly and lower heat to low. Cook for 20 minutes. Fluff up when done.
Meanwhile cover the dried berries with 1/2 cup warm water. Let sit while you prepare the sauce. In a medium saucepan heat up the soup, add in the chicken, flaked and the coconut. Drain the berries and add in. Let heat over medium heat till just bubbling.
Plate the rice in bowls and top with the sauce. Sprinkle a bit more coconut on top.
Serves 2 to 3.
