Sealing chicken?

I er, don't cook often, but had planned to make this for dinner tonight. Just writing it out and it doesn't mention sealing chicken. Is this ok? I always thought you weren't supposed to just throw in raw meat with stuff like that.
It says "Stir in the ground almonds and the chicken and simmer for 10-12 minutes until the chicken is cooked with no pink showing." That's pretty much it for the cooking! 10-12 minutes just doesn't seem like long.
Historically, I massively overcook meat to be on the safe side, so maybe I'm just being weird.

Obviously it's easier to not bother with sealing, so I'll happily follow the recipe if Mumsnet approves.

Your link doesn't take me to the recipe but I assume the chicken is poaching rather then being fried. Which recipe is it?

Is it the chicken korma?

As the chicken is diced it shouldn't take long to cook. Test a piece after the allotted cooking time. If it isn't pink then it's cooked

Oops, not sure what happened with the link. Yes it is the korma.

I will test it! Thanks for the comments.
