Weekends are when I like to try and get inventive and create recipes that may take longer than usual. Most weekday nights however, it’s a different story; it’s all about quick and easy food that not only tastes good, but isn’t junk.
Loyd Grossman is a household name and bridges the gap between food that not only has flavour, but adds an element of cooking, which helps to avoid the nasty ready meals that can easily be bought out of convenience.
Loyd Grossman were kind enough to send me their limited edition Mint Masala curry sauce and after a hectic day at work, I decided to have a lazy but tasty dinner.
I added a few extra ingredients to enhance the flavour of the sauce but stuck to chicken since it’s easy to cook and works well with any type of curry.
You can easily substitue chicken for other meat or even fish if you prefer.
- 1 Loyd Grossman Mint Masala Curry Sauce
- 2 Chicken Breasts
- 1 Red Onion, diced (can also be used as garnish)
- 1 Green Chilli, chopped finely
- 2 Tomatoes, chopped
- Handful of mint - half to add to the curry, and the rest for garnish
- Rice and/or Naan to serve, cook according to pack instructions
- Optional step but for more flavoursome chicken, marinate overnight with half of Loyd Grossman's mint masala sauce and some of the mint leaves.
- Once ready to cook, fry the red onion in some oil for a few minutes.
- Add the green chilli and tomatoes and fry for a further 2 minutes.
- Once the red onion has browned, add the chicken mixture to the pan and also add the rest of the sauce. Cook on a medium heat for 5 minutes then simmer gently for 15 minutes. For a wet sauce cover whilst simmering or for a dry(er) curry, leave uncovered.
- Whilst your waiting for the curry start on the rice and cook according to pack instructions. If using naan, pre-heat the oven and add 5 minutes towards the end.
- Optional - Once you're happy with the consistency of the curry, remove from the heat and scatter some leftover red onion and mint for presentation
- Serve with either naan and/or rice
Rice and Loyd Grossman products – Mint Masala and Naan – were kindly sent to me. All other ingredients were bought by myself. Recipe is my own
