Slimming World Chicken Curry

This Slimming World Chicken Curry is possibly my favourite dish in the world, inspired by my Slimming World Beef Curry I made a year ago. You know one of those go to recipes that you cook every week and still look forward to it. Friends also ask us to cook it again and again for dinner parties.

Can You Freeze This Dish?

Yes, I make batches of the sauce and freeze in size portions. You can also freeze the complete meal however make sure the chicken is thoroughly defrosted before reheating and ensure it is reheated thoroughly.

If You Like Your Curry Hotter or Milder?

Chris prefers his curry hotter, I prefer mine milder which leaves us with a dilemma. This recipe is just a little hotter than I would like, but too mild for him. For this reason we cook up the recipe, take my portion out and put in a separate pan and add a large spoonful of fat free Greek yoghurt. Whilst he is able to add a spoonful of chilli power or glue of chilli sauce.

Serving Suggestions

Serve with a selection of rices and home made onion bhajis

For a slimming world friendly option choose a brown toasted pita bread.

If you don’t care about the calories go for a garlic nan bread of tortilla wraps.

Living On A Healthy Eating Plan

Although I don’t follow Slimming World as a strict diet I do find following the principles helps me maintain a healthy diet. Additionally when you can cook food that tastes great but is healthy then for me that is a natural choice.

This slimming world curry sauce can be made in batches and frozen for quick and easy midweek meals.

For a little more of a kick add more chilli powder

If you don't have a blender you don't need to blend the curry sauce to a paste, however it does give it a better, more authentic consistency.
