      Ingredients

      • 2 chicken breasts (small)

      Tip!

      This is a really simple recipe for a quick but tasty lunch. Marinating the chicken in the spices for longer leaves the chicken really flavoursome and juicy. Try out different marinades and different types of curry paste, depending how spicy you like it! Just remember that too much spicy food can cause heartburn or indigestion so be guided by how you’re feeling.
