Chicken and Spinach Curry

Yet another healthy curry recipe and this can only be a good thing. The addition of chicken ups the price somewhat, but using fresh chicken thighs not only gives you a richer flavour but also cuts the cost compared to chicken breasts. If you’re worried about the extra fat content then make sure you trim off as much excess as you can before cooking.
