Quick and easy chicken curry

This is a really quick and yummy chicken curry recipe.  You can add almost anything to it to give it variety – try different veg you may have in the fride or a different curry sauce for an extra kick.  This recipe made curry for 2 with leftovers for my lunch the next day, which I had with a jacket potato 🙂

1 onion chopped

1 green chilli chopped

1 garlic clove, chopped

1 green pepper, sliced into medium chunks

2 tbsp curry paste – I used tikka pasta but you can use anything

Carton of chopped tomatoes

2 chicken breasts

4 tbsp yogurt

Garam Masala (optional)

Basmati rice

Naan bread – I used coriander and garlic flavoured bread to give even more flavour

  1. Heat a little oil in a deep non-stick frying pan (with a lid) and add the onion.
  2. Fry for about 3 minutes until tender then stir in the chilli, garlic and pepper, after a few minutes add the curry paste.
  3. Fry for another minute and then add in chicken, tomatoes and a splash of water – I filled up the carton to a quarter so I could get all the remaining juices.
  4. Cover and cook for 15-20 minutes until cooked through. Stir in the yoghurt. Season with pepper and garam masala.
  5. Serve with rice, naan bread or a salad or all three!
