ingredients

  • 4 x 150g chicken breasts, boned and skinned
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 4 level tablespoons tikka curry paste
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 225g thin green beans
  • 110g baby spinach leaves
  • 150g fat-free natural yogurt
  • Freshly ground black pepper

method

  1. Slice the chicken breasts into strips and place in a large bowl. Sprinkle with the lemon juice, spoon in the tikka curry paste and garlic. Gently toss the chicken in this spicy marinade and then cover and leave to marinate in the refrigerator or a cool place for 30 minutes.
  2. Heat a large wok or frying pan. When hot, pour in the chicken and the marinade. Stir-fry over a medium heat for about 5–7 minutes, turning the chicken until it is cooked right through. Season with freshly ground black pepper.
  3. Meanwhile, top and tail the beans and blanch them in a pan of boiling, salted water until they are just tender but retain some bite. Drain well and toss with the baby spinach leaves.
  4. To serve, pile the spinach and beans into the centre of each serving plate and top with the strips of hot chicken. Drizzle over a little natural yogurt and serve immediately.
