Chicken and Chickpea Curry

This is a healthy version of the family favourite chicken curry. It’s packed with vegetables and they’re easily disguised in the sauce, for those who don’t enjoy their veg. It takes a little time to prepare, but the final result is worth the effort. It’s also a fairly inexpensive meal to make and definitely one to put on the planner.

Serves 4
