I’ve had a jar of Trader Joe’s Thai curry simmer sauce in the cupboard for a few months now.
Every time I’d think about using it I’d face a dilemma, cook the chicken first or not?
The instructions on the jar say to cook it until done and then add the sauce.
With other packaged foods, especially things like rice mixes that are added to boiling water, I just combine all the ingredients (without bringing the water to a boil) put it in the Sun Oven and call it a day. It always seems to work just fine. But this time I choose to cook the chicken first.
Once it was done, I cut it up in to chunks before mixing it with the sauce. And that worked just fine too.
