Quadly Cooking: Coconut Curry Lime Chicken with Rice Noodles

Let’s start off by defining Quadly Cooking. I’m a quadriplegic due to a C6-7 spinal cord injury. “Gimpy” or “quadly” aptly defines the function – or lack thereof – that I have in my hands.  Thanks to several surgeries called tendon transfers, I have a decent grip with my left hand that improved my ability to cook.

For a variety of reasons I try to make meals from almost-scratch if possible. Not only is it healthier, but I avoid food intolerances by cooking meals myself. I use a lot of short cuts that make cooking do-able and I’ll share these in the videos and posts.

My tips for this recipe:

  1. Dice and freeze bell peppers in a freezer bag (I have someone help me with this every few months).
  2. Use an automatic can opener for the coconut milk.
  3. Freeze rotisserie chicken (about 1 1/2 cups) in a freezer bag, then defrost just before using.
  4. To measure liquid ingredients, use a mini measuring cup.

The recipe is at the end of the video.

  1. D-lish-us! Made this dish tonight and doubled the recipe. Sprinkled Virginia peanuts on top for an extra salty crunch. Thanks for sharing your fun video and easy recipe!
