Basic recipes are good, sometimes. The kind of thing you can throw together when you get home from work, chucking in whatever spare veg you’ve got languishing in your cupboard to jazz it up, and have a satisfying meal ready quickly.
This is a basic recipe. Feel free to add whatever else you want to it — but this will give you a decent base recipe to start from.
- 4 chicken breasts
- 1 red onion
- 1 garlic clove
- 1 can of chopped tomatoes
- 250ml chicken stock
- Curry powder
- Coriander, to serve
- Rice, to serve
- Cut the chicken breasts into strips and brown them in a hot pan. Then remove from the pan
- Finely dice the onion and the garlic clove, before frying over a medium heat until soft
- Return the chicken to the pan along with the tomatoes and stock. Add curry powder to taste (around a tablespoon of medium curry powder, as a guide) and stir well
- Bring this mix to a simmer, and let it bubble away for 10-20 minutes, until the sauce is as thick as you like
- Serve with the rice and some chopped coriander on top
