Chicken Curry

  • Serves 2

Chicken curry does not require much from you: some slightly sweet curry sauce thickened with Greek yoghurt dotted with thinly sliced chicken breasts sautéed with curry powder. The preparation time is even less than the time it will take you to prepare some basmati rice, that is less than 30 minutes! Ever wondered why all the chicken curry meals you have tasted have always been filled with tender chicken? Three words will answer that: curried roasted carrots!. The taste and spice level of this dish will vary a bit depending on the type of curry powder you use.

This Chicken curry recipe tastes great with rice or roti, and the combination makes a great meal for lunch! Make sure you pack the meal in a thermos or in an insulated lunch bag so you can enjoy it warm later.

Health Benefits

Chicken is an excellent source of protein and contains less fat than most meats. The chicken breast, in particular, contains half the fat of a steak. Chicken is a good source of niacin (which possesses cancer-fighting properties) as well as the trace mineral selenium.
