Rach Eats Lunch: Spicy Curry Chicken

Spicy curry chicken recipe

Well today, I am rather emotionally hungover. Thankfully my big side hustle problem has been figured out, with a bit of luck, and so there's that bit of normality sorted. Unfortunately I'm still a very angry being, and I'm just really snappy and irritable and just a right pain in the butt, quite frankly. I've got a burp trapped in my throat and it is very, very annoying. I've even taken to Google, and I'm breathing through my nose with my gob shut to try and see if that helps. Wish me luck, because the burps I am having are the sicky kind and nobody likes those burps. Why am I talking about burps on a food blog, anyway?

Today's recipe is inspired by one I tried making during the Great Blog Drought Of February 2019 and it was so laughably bad I decided against posting it. So I'm trying again, but this time I'm doing a better job of it. Thank goodness for that.


(Ooh, spicy)

Serves 1

You'll need:
1 chicken breast
1 teaspoon each garlic, paprika, cumin, turmeric
2 tablespoons each tomato puree and chopped tinned tomatoes
1 tablespoon plain soya yoghurt
1 large handful frozen butternut squash cubes
1 small bag microwave cauliflower rice, to serve
1 small handful plum cherry tomatoes, halved

1. Start off by lining a baking tray and preheating the oven to 180℃, then slap the chicken and butternut squash on a tray. In a little bowl, add the spices, tomato puree and chopped tomatoes. Mix it all together until it makes a fairly loose paste. Add the plain soya yoghurt and stir, then coat the chicken with the mixture and pop it straight in the oven for 25-30 minutes until piping hot.

2. Make up the microwave cauliflower rice as per packet instructions and then pour it into a bowl.

3. Take the chicken out of the oven and arrange it on top of the rice with the butternut squash. Serve immediately with the halved cherry tomatoes.

And with that, lunch was served and it tasted really, really good. This one is well worth it for days when you've got little time but still want something lush. Do it.
