Indochine Chicken and Shrimp: Grand Lux Copycat

I think that Grand Lux found a winner with this dish. The first time I had it I ate really, really slow, savoring the taste. The second time I had it, my coworker and I insisted we could figure out what was in it. Besides the obvious chicken, shrimp and curry sauce, we were a bit stumped to what it was. Until she found a recipe on the world wide web and opted to try. And here is the copycat to Grand Lux's Indochine Chicken and Shrimp.

This recipe is not as difficult as I felt it would be considering the taste of the dish. There is so much flavor. And that is really what takes the dish over the top.

I love that this dish incorporates my two favorite types of meat: shrimp and chicken. And that it does not require too much prep work. Thank you RecipeLink for finding the recipe from Robert Okura

I used one chicken breast, that I cut up into be size pieces, coated with flour and fried lightly

Then got my shrimp and added it to onions and cooked lightly

With the meat put to the side. I got my sauce ready. I used premade curry sauce that most supermarkets or specialty Asian stores carry. Or you can spend a little longer time getting this meal ready and make your own curry sauce. The good thing about making your own is that you can control the curry and the flavor. The colors may vary as we know that curry comes in all different colors.

When the sauce started to thicken up, I threw my meat back into the sauce to simmer in this amazingness that also had chopped apricots and cherries.

Using the simmer sauce is a huge assistance. It provides you with a base flavor that you can easily make your own adjustments of heat or flavoring.

This does not need anything but plain white rice.

Can I say I feel so proud of the rice towers? You don't want to know how many times they fell and I had to do it over.
