Chicken, red peppers and petals of slow-roasted onion in a delicious curry sauce.


  • 3 large onions, 1 roughly chopped, 2 cut into 8 wedges each
  • 40g fresh root ginger, peeled and roughly chopped
  • 4 large garlic cloves, roughly chopped
  • 1 heaped tsp garam masala
  • 2 tsp Schwartz medium curry powder
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika
  • ½ tsp turmeric
  • 227g can chopped tomatoes
  • 3 tbsp tomato purée
  • 1 chicken stock cube, crumbled

  • 800g skinless and boneless chicken breasts, cut into bite-sized chunks
  • 2 large bottled roasted red peppers in brine, cut into small chunks
  • 1 heaped tsp black onion seeds
  • ½ small pack fresh coriander, chopped


  1. Preheat your oven to 220°C/fan 200°C/gas 7.
  2. Put the roughly chopped onion, ginger, garlic, spices, chopped tomatoes, tomato purée, stock cube and 400ml boiling water in a large saucepan over a high heat. Bring to a simmer then reduce the heat to low, cover and cook gently for 25 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, put the onion wedges in a large non-stick roasting tin, spray with low-calorie cooking spray and toss well. Roast for 15 minutes, turning halfway.
  4. Whizz the tomato mixture until smooth using a stick blender (or use a food processor and return to the pan). Add the chicken, peppers, onion seeds and roasted onions, cover and simmer for 15 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through.
  5. Stir through the coriander, season lightly and serve with rice and Speed vegetables.
