Moving-In Chik'n Curry Lentil Soup

Hey All!
I will now be blogging from West NC!

Most of the time I wouldn't dream of including a can of soup in a soup "recipe". It's too boxed-style for me. But we've been going out to eat every day and that's expensive and I just wanted something easy and quick.

You will need:
1 Can Progresso Lentil Soup
1/2 onion, sliced thin
1 clove garlic, minced
Yellow Curry Powder(standard curry powder, not special Indian or Thai style curries)
Splash (prob. 1/3 c) coconut milk
Seasoned Salt
1/2 c or so "Chik'n" strips, chopped

Heat skillet/pot and fry onion in a little vegetable oil until softened.
Add garlic and chik'n strips and cook until strips are heated through and a bit firm. DO NOT let garlic burn.
A couple min into cooking chik'n strips, put a good amount of curry powder and let it fry with the chicken.
Add coconut milk and cook until it's basically coating the onion mixture, not too liquidy.
Add can of coup and heat through.

Even if it's "semi-homemade", you soup sounds great! TJ's chickenless strips and pre-cooked lentils and rice were an absolutely life saver for me that last time I moved.
