ever since posting this made from scratch curry on my Instagram stories, it has received great notoriety, and I’ve been receiving messages every day telling me how well its been going down with families across the nation.
Another bonus with curry is its versatility, if you fancy slow-cooking it you can add your chicken fillets, make up your paste in a little mixing bowl. Add it to the slow cooker with the chicken breasts. Then pour in one can of coconut milk (400g) and 200MLS chicken stock. Cook it on low for 6 hours and high for 3 to 4 hours.if you want to replace the coconut milk you can replace it with 300 MLS of cream, adding the cream before serving so it doesn’t curdle during cooking. You can also replace the chutney with a tablespoon of honey or teaspoon of sugar, the possibility,s are endless.
