I don't want to do curry or a pie because I'm on a post-holiday calorie-counting thing. I am thinking chicken and sweetcorn soup, but DH will think that is not a proper dinner. Any ideas please?

Stir fry with vegetables and prawns ,Low fat chicken curry with yoghurt or warm with salad and low fat dressing or made into fajitas. Following as am in search of ideas myself !

Actually a tomato-based chicken curry would be fine too wouldn't it. It's just the korma and coconut stuff that's a bit calorific.

Add to peppers and onions with some spices and stick it in a fajita.

Mince it up and make it into meatballs or rissoles.

Eat it cold with salad.

I always shred it up and do a creamy pasta with mushrooms and chicken, delish!

Risotto

Fajitas

Curry (can do low cal with low fat coconut milk or tomato based)

With tomato sauce, (roasted veggies) and pasta

As a wrap or sandwich

Into soup

Chicken and mushrooms with a white wine and cream sauce over rice or pasta (tiny amount of cream so not bad on calories)

Chinese stir fry
Or thai stir fry in broth, with some chilli heat! Yum!! (Love that but cannot cook it myself)

roast some chopped carrots, butternut squash, peppers and onion for 20 minutes. Add in the cooked chopped chicken, some small chopped up tomatoes and half a tin of chickpeas and cover the lot in tagine paste. Roast for another 15 mins.

Serve with cous cous. Delicious and good for you.

I did a tomato based curry in the end, with tons of veg. It was delicious. Thanks for all those - will have plenty of ideas for next time.
