Weekend cooking - chicken lentil curry
Be warned - this is a low-fat, healthy version.
200g onions, diced
400g chicken, cubed
400g cooked lentils (you can use sugar beans/ kidney beans/ in fact, any legumes will do)
1 can tomato, chilli & onion mix
Curry powder, tumeric & breyani masala (I buy this, readymade, at the Indian shops)
1 tablespoon olive oil
Garlic & ginger
Salt & pepper
Brown onion in oil.
Add chicken pieces, curry powders and cook until the chicken is done.
(I would normally add a potato, cubed, if I wasn’t on weigh-less but that is now a thing of the past)
Add can of tomato mix and let cook through
Add lentils last otherwise they get mushier (is this a word?).
Since we're only having this for supper tomorrow, my apologies that it is not nicely presented on a plate!
On weigh-less, 1 serve equals
1 medium fat protein
1 low fat protein
2 vegetable portions
