This baked chicken curry (opens in new tab) not only looks delightful but also tastes fantastic - it's incredibly low-hassle, simply throw everything in an ovenproof dish and let it bubble away in the oven. This recipe is ideal for those nights when you either don't have time to be stuck in a kitchen cooking for hours, or you simply need a quick and easy solution that's healthier than ordering a takeaway.
There's a lot less saturated fat in this curry dish than there is in a takeaway option or even the ready-made jars. Other than the coconut cream, there's no added oil. Chicken thighs are naturally fattier cuts of meat than breast, so they release a lot of their own juices which makes the chicken even more tender.
For a really interesting new take on a chicken curry, give this baked version a go - serve it up in the same way, with rice and naan breads for a real treat of a dish.
HOW TO MAKE BAKED CHICKEN CURRY
