Recipe: Chicken and Chickpea Curry




This chicken and chickpea curry as a definite winner in our house.  It came about due to the fact that I had very little in the house, so I had to use up the ingredients I did have.

Curry Ingredients:
1 Can Chickpeas
2 Chicken Breasts
1/2 Onion
1 Small Courgette
1 Clove Garlic
1tsp Medium Curry Powder
300ml Vegetable Stock
Fresh Chopped 
1tbsp Cream Cheese (I chosen lactofree cream cheese)

I followed this Jamie Oliver recipe for the bread

Curry Method:

  1. Cover the chicken in flour, seasoned with salt and pepper.
  2. Fry the chicken until brown and add the onions, garlic, courgette and curry powder.
  3. Pour in the vegetable stock and the chickpeas and simmer until the stock reduces and the chicken is tender.
  4. Take the curry off the heat and stir in the cream cheese.
  5. Add salt and pepper to taste.
  6. Place on the plate and sprinkle with fresh coriander.  Serve with rice and bread.
