Tonight’s meal is an experiment. I want to cook the chicken thigh with a meat thermometer in a covered frypan with some frozen vegetables.


  • Chicken thigh
  • Peas
  • Carrot
  • Capsicum
  • Black beans
  • Coconut cream
  • Curry paste
  • Ginger

  • In a frypan and laid down some frozen vegetables.
  • In a cup of hot water I mixed a couple of tablespoons of red curry paste.
  • I poured the curry water into the frypan.
  • I inserted the thermometer into the chicken thigh.
  • I put the chicken thigh on top of the vegetable layer in the frypan.
  • I put the lid on the frypan and turned on the heat.
  • I followed the cooking process by monitoring the internal temperature of the chicken.
  • My aim was to achieve 76 to 78 °C. When the target temperature was achieved, I removed the chicken to rest and then added coconut cream to the cooked curry vegetables.
  • I continued cooking the vegetables until the coconut cream had thickened and the curry past was incorporated into the coconut cream.
  • I poured the vegetables into a bowl and laid the chicken thigh on top.
  • I ate the meal using a knife and fork. Chopsticks were an option if I dissected the muscles from the femur prior to serving. I didn’t do that.

    No, Yummy Lummy still exists. The Random Yummy is my effort to thwart the Facebook ban on Yummy Lummy. I’ll use Random Yummy to share to Facebook.

    Yummy Lummy will remain a weekly recipe blog.
    Random Yummy will be a more frequent short form blog.

    If you don’t want to get spam from me, I’d stick with Yummy Lummy. 😃
