Recipe of the Week – Dinner Party Chicken

Dinner Party Chicken – Serves 4

1 protein | 1 fat | ½ dairy protein


  • 4 (120g) chicken breasts
  • 1 Tbsp garam masala
  • 2 tsp oil
  • 1 large onion, finely chopped
  • 1 ½ tsp crushed garlic
  • 1 ½ tsp minced ginger
  • ½ tsp turmeric
  • Cooking spray
  • ¼ tsp saffron threads
  • ¼ cup milk
  • 1 Tbsp ground almonds


  1. Rub chicken with garam masala and set aside.
  2. Heat large fry pan over moderate heat and add oil.  Fry onion until golden.  Add garlic, ginger and turmeric and cook for 2 minutes.  Remove onion mixture and set aside.
  3. Spray the pan with cooking spray, add chicken and brown lightly.
  4. Add saffron threads to the milk and warm slightly.
  5. Return onions to the pan and add saffron milk.  Cook on low-moderate heat until chicken is cooked, about 30 minutes but do not allow to boil.  The milk will curdle if it is boiled.
