  • 1 tbsp Olive oil
  • 400 g Chicken breasts, cut in to chunks
  • 1 Onion, diced
  • 1 Thumb sized piece of ginger, grated
  • 4 Garlic cloves, crushed
  • 1 tbsp Ground cumin
  • 1 tsp Turmeric
  • 0.5 tsp Red chilli flakes
  • 1 tsp Ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp Ground coriander
  • 2 tbsp Tomato puree
  • 400 g Chopped tomatoes
  • 4 tbsp Greek yoghurt
  • 1 Handful of fresh coriander, finely chopped


  • Add the olive oil to a large pan and add the onion, garlic and ginger and cook for 3 minutes until softened.
  • Add the chicken and cook for a further 3 minutes until browned.
  • Once the chicken is browned, add the red chilli flakes, cumin, turmeric, cinnamon and coriander to the pan and mix well and cook for 1 minute.
  • Add the chopped tomatoes and tomato puree and gently simmer for 20 minutes until the chicken it cooked through.
  • Stir through the Greek yoghurt and coriander before serving and serve with rice.



  • If you like your curries spicier, add an extra sprinkle of chilli flakes before serving.
  • Don't have all the different spices? Just use 2 tbsp of curry powder or curry paste instead. Or if you have Garam Masala, you can use that.
  • Make the curry a little more indulgent by stirring some cream through just before serving.
  • Add a portion of vegetables to this easy chicken curry by throwing in some chopped spinach a few minutes before the curry is finished.
  • Don't like chicken? You could use any vegetables instead, or use tofu or king prawns.
  • Try leftovers in a wrap with some grilled halloumi or on top of a baked potato.
  • Why not halve the amount of chicken and add some chickpeas instead.
  • Try stirring in some spinach a few minutes before serving for an iron boost.
