How to Make Low Fat Chicken curry


  1. combine the chicken with all the marinade ingredients in a mixing bowl . Cover with cling film and transfer to the fridge to leave to infuse the flavours in the marinade for 2 hours or more the longer the better taste .
  2. next step cut and prepare your vegetables, heat the grapeseed oil up in your pan , a well known chef on this site had told me that grapeseed oil has a higher burn point than most oils and will not flavour the food , well Andy thanken you for that advice because it's so true and helpful ..
  3. Right!! where was I oh yes! heat your large pan with oil over medium heat ,until hot add to that the marinade chicken cook for 5-6 minutes ,add to that the sliced onions ,peppers and chillies stirring occasionally until all has softened about 3-4 minutes . Then add the tomato puree to the chicken , stir through to mix and cook for a minute . Add the stock I used chicken stock ,bring to the boil then cook for 15 minutes to make sure the chicken is cooked .
    Then add in the pineapple
  4. Taste the chicken and adjust the seasoning as necessary . Add the tomatoes ,stir through and cook for 5-1o minutes ,until sauce thickened and the tomatoes softened . Remove from heat and serve with the healthy option brown rice and a sprinkle of chopped coriander . so from my table to yours I hope you all like and enjoy .... :)
