Ingredients

  • 1kg of boneless and skinless chicken thighs
  • 2 large onions - diced small
  • 2 tbsp sunflower oil
  • 4 cloves of garlic - minced
  • 1 inch piece of fresh ginger - peeled and finely grated
  • 1 tsp ground turmeric
  • 1 tsp mild chilli powder

Method

Prep time: 20 mins Cook time: 35 mins

Cut the chicken thighs into large chunks and place them in a bowl with the garlic, ginger, chilli powder, lime juice, 1 tbsp of oil and about half of the coriander. Mix and cover and allow to marinate in the fridge, overnight if possible.

In a large pan or wok, heat the remaining oil and add the onions and cook for around 5 minutes until soft. Add the turmeric and cook for another minute.

Tip the chicken and marinade into the pan and cook over a high heat until the chicken takes on some colour. Pour in the coconut milk, stock cube and chilli and cover with a lid. Simmer for 20 minutes until the chicken is cooked through and tender.

Add in the remaining coriander and serve with some pilau rice and a dollop of mango chutney.
