  • 2 onion chopped

  • 4 chicken breast

  • 2 tsp turmeric

  • 1 chilli diced

  • 1 tbsp almonds chopped

  • 2 cloves garlic

  • 2 tsp coriander


  1. Soften the onion in some oil for 5 minutes.
  2. Add the garlic, chilli, nuts, spices and continue to cook for 2 minutes.
  3. Add the coconut and bring to boil. Simmer for 10 minutes.
  4. Whizz with a hand blender. (You don't have to do this but I find that my children are happy with spiced foods but not keen on the bits).
  5. Put in a casserole with the chicken and cook at 190C/Gas Mark 5 for 40-50 minutes until the chicken is done.
  6. If you think the sauce needs to be thicker add some cornflour.

Handy Hint

You can make double the sauce and freeze it. Just reheat and pour over grilled chicken breasts.

    This is a regular favourite with my 12 and 14 year olds. I actually use more chilli but that's not to everyone's taste. you can cut up the chicken into cubes. 3 breasts would be enough if you have small children.
