Really enjoyed this, and kids loved it too. Used diced peeled potato as didn’t have enough chicken, and would do that again. Browned chicken/onion first. Added 2 tsp curry powder. Next time will roast some veggies to stir through for adults (kids like veggies raw on the side).

I made this but used the “super savers” cookbook version. Lovely! Very very mild though, I would definitely add some curry powder or chilli of some description next time (I am not at all good with spicy food but felt this needed just a little ‘something’). All in all, it was really good and I will definitely make it again.

I added chopped carrots at the start and then about 30 minutes before the end I added chopped broccoli and cauliflower and a generous amount of baby spinach leaves and served over rice.
