This recipe effortlessly comes together with help from my oven so that I can focus on other things.

Ingredients for 1 serving

267 g chicken breast
116 g mushrooms
68 g leeks
1/2 tsp smoked paprika
6 g olive oil
24 g sesame seeds
51 g Thai red curry paste
149 g pok choi
salt and pepper


  • Pre-heat your oven to 190°C fan/400°F and line a baking sheet with non stick foil.
  • Coat both sides of the chicken in the Thai curry paste and sesame seeds then place onto the lined baking sheet.
  • Place the chicken in the oven to bake for approximately 20-30 minutes or until cooked through – it will be firm to the touch when ready.
  • When the chicken has been cooking for approximately 15 minutes, take another baking sheet and line it with non stick foil.
  • Cut the pok choi in half and arrange the halves onto the baking sheet along with the mushrooms and leeks.
  • Drizzle the vegetables with the olive oil, season to taste and sprinkle the smoked paprika over the pok choi.
  • Place the baking sheet into the oven for approximately 10-15 minutes by which time the chicken should be cooked through and the vegetables will have softened.
  • Pop everything onto a plate and get ready to dig in!

Recipe Notes

  • If you don’t have Thai red curry paste, you can use green if that’s what you have.
  • Why not batch cook this recipe and have a portion ready for tomorrow too!
  • A splash of fish sauce at the end would really compliment the recipe without sending your macros into overdrive.
  • For this recipe I used baby leeks.
  • If you have it, Korean red pepper powder would be a great substitute for the smoked paprika.
