Chicken madras

Those who know me know that curries are my favourite meal. Either that or a really good steak. I’ve never quite been able to pick one above the other. Some choices are just too weighty for a mere human like myself.

Anyway, I digress. I really love this slimming world madras, it proves that you don’t need lashings of oil to make a great curry, and you can easily do without a huge chunk of naan bread too.

Dear God, thank you for curry. Amen.
