Quicker Baked Potato

Try this method for speeding up the potato baking process (for a better texture than those that you microwave). Pre-heat the oven to 400. Place the potato in boiling water for 10 minutes. Bake for 30 minutes. This will cut the cooking time in half.


Tom Kha Gai

chicken, thai

2 cup coconut milk
6 thin slices young galangal
2 stalks lemon grass,
1 ; lower third portion only,
1 ; cut into 1 piece, crushed
5 fresh kaffir lime leaves
8 oz boned chicken breast, sliced
5 tablespoon fish sauce (nam pla)
2 tablespoon sugar
1/2 cup lime juice
1 teaspoon black chili paste
1/4 cup cilantro/coriander leaves
1 ; torn
5 green thai chili peppers,
1 ; crushed

A rich, aromatic dinner soup, which is enjoyed throughout the meal. Whenever possible, fresh kaffir lime leaves should be used, and their flavor and aroma is increased when they are torn instead of cut with a knife. Young galangal is pale yellow, with firm unwrinkled pink shoots. Fresh young ginger can be substituted if necessary, but the flavor will not be quite the same. Combine half the coconut milk with the galangal, lemon grass and lime leaves in a large saucepan and heat to boiling. Add the chicken, fish sauce and sugar. Simmer for about 4 minutes, or until the chicken is cooked. Add the remaining coconut milk to the saucepan and heat just to boiling. Place the lime juice and chili past in a serving bowl, then pour the soup into the serving bowl. Garnish with the torn cilantro leaves and crushed chili peppers, and serve.
