Ingredients for the Healthy Thai Almond Chicken Curry
2 chicken thighs, skin on and bone removed
1 tsp curry powder
a good pinch of sea salt
olive oil spray
30g Thai green curry paste
200g half fat coconut milk
200ml vegetable or chicken stock
1 tbsp dark muscavado sugar
5 lime leaves
120g fresh cooked brown rice

Method : How to make this healthy Thai Almond Chicken Curry
Rub the chicken thighs with the curry powder and salt, then spritz gently with olive oil. Set aside.
To make the sauce, spritz a little oil into the bottom of a pan over a moderate heat. Add the curry paste and fry for 2 minutes. Pour over the coconut milk and stock and add the almond butter, sugar and lime leaves. Bring to the boil then turn down and leave to simmer for 5 minutes. Keep warm.
Heat a griddle pan until smoking. Lay the chicken thighs into the pan skin side down and lower the heat to medium. Grill for 4-5 minutes until the skin is crispy and lightly charred, then turn over and cook for a further 4-5 minutes, until the chicken is cooked through. Remove from the pan and set aside to rest on a plate for a few minutes. Once rested, cut the thigh meat into thick slices, pouring any excess cooking juices into the curry sauce.
Divide the rice between bowls, then top each with the chicken, sauce, cucumber, spring onions, beansprouts and nuts. Scatter over the herbs and serve.
