Food: Low fat Chicken Curry

1It’s the end of the week and time to indulge a little with a delicious chicken curry. Here’s my low fat chicken curry recipe. Enjoy!! 

For this dish you will need: 

– 3 skinless chicken diced breast 

– 4 heaped tsp garam masala powder

– 4 grated garlic cloves

– 3cm of grated root ginger

– 2tsp of fresh lemon juice 

For the curry

– Calorie spray cooking oil

– 3 thinly sliced onions

– 1-2 finely chopped green chillies

– 2 diced green peppers

– 1 tbsp tomato purée

– 200ml of chicken stock

– 4 tomatoes, seeds removed, quartered, cut into strips

– ½ small bunch of roughly chopped coriander

To serve

– cooked brown rice 

Got it? Let’s start cooking… 

1. Combine the chicken with the marinade ingredients in a mixing bowl. Cover with cling film and transfer to the fridge for two hours, or overnight if possible.

2. Spray a pan with cal spray and add the sliced onions and peppers and fry for 5-6 minutes, stirring occasionally until softened. Add three-quarters of the chilli and cook for two minutes then add the marinated chicken and the marinade. Cook for 3-4 minutes

3. Add the tomato purée to the chicken, stir through to mix and cook for two minutes. Add the stock, bring to the boil then cook for 10 minutes to cook the chicken through.

4. Taste the chicken and adjust the seasoning as necessary. Stir through and cook for 5-10 minutes, or until the sauce is thickened and flavoursome. Remove from the heat and serve with rice.
