Preparation Time: 25 mins
Cooking Time: 35 mins
Serves: 4


1 Onion, chopped
2 garlic cloves, roughly chopped
Thumb-sized piece ginger, roughly chopped
4 tbsp korma paste
4 skinless, boneless chicken breasts, cut into bite-sized pieces
50g ground almonds, plus extra to serve (optional)
4 tbsp sultanas
400ml chicken stock
¼ tsp golden caster sugar
150g pot 0% fat Greek yogurt
Small bunch coriander, chopped


Put 1 chopped onion, 2 roughly chopped garlic cloves and a roughly chopped thumb-sized piece of ginger in a food processor and whizz to a paste.

Tip the paste into a large high-sided frying pan with 3 tbsp water and cook for 5 mins. Add 4 tbsp korma paste and cook for a further 2 mins until aromatic.

Stir 4 skinless, boneless chicken breasts, cut into bite-sized pieces, into the sauce. Add 50g ground almonds, 4 tbsp sultanas, 400ml chicken stock and ¼ tsp golden caster sugar.

Give everything a good mix, then cover and simmer for 10 mins or until the chicken is cooked through.

Remove the pan from the heat, stir in a 150g pot Greek yogurt and some seasoning, then scatter over a small bunch of chopped coriander and more ground almonds, if using. Serve with brown or white basmati rice.
