Chicken chilli kicker masala

Chicken chilli kicker masala

This is such a quick curry to make and has a surprising depth of flavour for something made in minutes.  You can make this as spicy or as tame as you like, it just depends on how much chilli and it’s seeds you use.  For a lean dish is has a lovely creamy rich texture and it has to be one of my favourite curry recipes so far!

Ingredients for 1 serving

267g chicken breast, chopped into chunks
46g onions, chopped
95g chopped tomatoes, blended until smooth
3 tsp garam masala
2 tsp ground cumin
2 tsp ground ginger
2 garlic cloves, chopped or crushed
1-2 chilli, sliced, seeds or no seeds up to you!
1 chicken stock cube
6g coconut oil
24g cashews, lightly toasted
46g reduced fat sour cream
75ml water
149g broccoli made into broccoli rice

(Example ingredient amounts given, adjust accordingly to your requirements)

Method

  • Put a frying pan onto a medium heat with half of the coconut oil and fry the onion to soften.
  • After a few minutes add 2 tsp garam masala, 1 tsp ground cumin and 1 tsp ground ginger and fry off the spices for a minute or so.
  • Next add the chicken pieces.
  • Thoroughly coat the chicken in the onion and spice mix and cook for a couple of minutes.
  • Add the rest of the spices to the pan with the garlic and chilli, give everything a really good mix.
  • Pop a lid on to cook for around 5 minutes to infuse the chicken.
  • After 5 minutes, add the tomatoes, sprinkle the stock cube into the pan and add the water.
  • Give everything a really good mix, cover and leave to cook for around 15 minutes at a simmer.
  • After 15 minutes, check the pan to see it hasn’t lost all it’s liquid and if needed add a little water as you want there to be a bit of a sauce.
  • Take a hand food processor and make the broccoli rice.
  • Take another frying pan, put it on a high heat, add the remaining coconut oil and dry fry it for a minute or so.
  • After the broccoli rice has warmed through it’s time to plate up.
  • Take the chicken off the heat and stir through the reduced fat sour cream.
  • Add the broccoli rice to the plate along side the chicken masala.
  • Sprinkle the toasted cashews over your masala.
  • Remember, the more chillies you add, the more of a kicker you’re gonna have!

Notes

  • Check out the video showing exactly how to make broccoli rice.
  • I like to use low salt stock cubes.
  • Cauliflower rice is also a lovely accompaniment , but for anyone following older BC plans, you may occasionally have cauliflower in place of your green vegetables (gram for gram).
