It’s been weeks of over indulgence and ALL THE CAKE here. I’ve loved every moment but now I am well and truly back on the wagon to eat healthily again.
One of my favourite ways of sticking to healthier options is to create versions of my favourite foods that are just a little lighter. This Easy Chicken Curry recipe is one of those.
Tips for making the Easy Chicken Curry recipe:
- Don’t worry if you don’t have time to marinade the chicken, but if you do? It makes a big difference and really improves the flavour.
- You can mix and match and try different curry pastes if you prefer. This basic method works well for lots of different flavours like Jalfrezi, or Rogan Josh.
- This Easy Chicken Curry recipe is easily adapted to make is a Slimming World Chicken Tikka Masala. Just replace the curry paste with curry powder, whichever you fancy. Use ‘syn free’ yoghurt and count the ‘syns’ for the oil and sugar (these will be very low shared between the portions though!)
Can you freeze Chicken Curry?
Yes! This freezes so well. I often make a double batch, pack it up into containers like this (Takeaway Containers on Amazon, about £8 for 50.)
What vegetables can you add to this curry recipe?
I often add spinach, chickpeas, mushrooms or cauliflower. All of these work really well and make this a more complete meal.
I love to serve this with my super simple 3 ingredient flatbreads.
