Chicken Tikka Masala

I've been making this curry for a while now and when I looked at the ingredients it was perfect for fitting in with Slimming World.  I just made a few tweaks to make it syn free!

I had some mini poppadums with it which was 3 syns for the 13g - but the curry is free.

Serves 3/4

Marinade 4 chicken breasts (diced) with 2 tablespoons of mild curry powder, 1.5 teaspoons of paprika, 1 teaspoon salt, 2 cloves of garlic (crushed), 6 tablespoons of natural fat free yoghurt.

For the sauce - 1 large onion finely chopped, 2 cloves of garlic (crushed), 1 tablespoon of mild curry powder, 2 tablespoons of tomato purée, 2 teaspoons of artificial sweetener, 1 teaspoon of salt, 350ml of water.
Fry the onions & garlic in frylight for a couple of minutes and add the rest of the ingredients.  Simmer for about 5 minutes and then set aside (or if you have a fusspot in the house like me who hates any signs of veg - then blitz in the blender)

Spray a pan with frylight and add the marinaded chicken and cook for about 5/10 mins. Then add the sauce and simmer for about 15 minutes.  I also add a bit more yoghurt as it's cooking as the spices can sometimes taste a bit bitter and that tones it down.

Then serve with some boiled rice :)
