Chicken and Quinoa Balti Curry

Who said all curries were bad for you? Try this healthy take on an Indian classic – you won’t be disappointed!

SERVES 4
Ingredients:

4 skinless Chicken Breasts (1 per person)
2 Large Onions, sliced
200g Quinoa
400g tin of Chopped Tomatoes
4 tbsp balti curry paste
1tbsp Olive Oil
Bunch of Fresh Coriander (roughly chopped)

To make:
1. Heat the oil in a large pan, add the onions and fry until soft and golden – about 5 minutes. Remove from the pan.

2. Add the chicken breasts, brown for a few minutes on each side, then add the Balti paste, quinoa and pop the onions back in.

3. After a few minutes of sizzling, pour in the tomatoes, stock and give it all a good mix. Leave to cook for 25 minutes.

4. Just before serving, add most of the coriander to the mix and stir.

5. Pile onto a plate or wide bowl, and sprinkle the remaining coriander on top and around – for that decorative touch!

Serve as is, or with some Garlic and Coriander Naan to mop up the juices!

Love and energy,
