Recipe: Quick Chicken Curry for One

This is a really quick dish that you can make for lunch, that doesnt require too much preparation or too many ingredients, but you end up with a nice big tasy bowl of sumthin! As explained in the serving size, it is a good meal for one, but you often end up with a fair bit of sauce leftover, so you can save some of the sauce to have later on a baked chicken breast or grilled lamb chop, or you can chuck it into any casserole or stew to add flavour.

Quick Chicken Curry for One (serves 1, with a little extra sauce)

1 tbsp rapeseed oil
½ red onion, diced
1 garlic clove, crushed
Handful fresh coriander, chopped (plus extra for garnish)
1 chicken breast, diced into large chunks
1 tsp tomato paste
1 generous tbsp Balti curry paste
½ tin chopped tomatoes
200ml chicken stock
1 tsp garam masala
1 tsp sugar
1 tbsp red wine vinegar
Salt and pepper to taste

1. Fry the red onion, garlic and coriander in the rapeseed oil for 5 minutes. Add the chicken, tomato paste and curry paste, and cook for a further few minutes, stirring often.
2. Add the rest of the ingredients, and cook on a high heat for 20 minutes, stirring often. Season to taste, and serve with some extra chopped coriander on top!
