cashew coconut chicken

Yes, we're defintely getting to the end of this pregnancy, because i'm having major Indian Food cravings! Fortunately for my tastebuds, Carl took me to the Bombay House for my birthday dinner, and then the following week we celebrated my sister Maresa's BYU Graduation there as well. I still miss that Indian Buffet on Tropicana Blvd in Vegas...
So with all of that in mind here is my latest eastern concoction...not meant to be authentic by any means...but definitely delicious!

1 cup coconut milk
3/4 tsp red curry paste
1 tsp lime juice
1 tbs fish sauce
2 tbs soy sauce
1 tsp cumin
1 tsp thai seasoning
1 1/2 tsp ginger
1 1/2 tbs ground yellow curry
1/2 cup cashews
1 cup artichoke pieces, quartered
1 1/2 lbs chicken, sliced 1/2"

Combine all but chicken in large sauce pan. Let spices and sauce warm on med heat. Slice chicken while flavors are mixing & doing their delectable thing... Add chicken and cover. Cook for 10 minutes or until chicken is tender. Great for leftovers, gives spices time to really sink in. Add salt to taste when served to bring out flavors.
Serve over your favorite rice (we prefer long grain brown, basmati, etc.)/potatoes/pasta...
