Recipe for the weekend: Swahili Chicken.
I tried the Swahili Chicken recipe and it was a deliciously satisfying meal. You can serve it with some steamed spinach and leeks to make for a healthy dinner /lunch.For the method you could pan fry or grill it. Another adaption could be to use coconut oil and milk in the marinade to create a thicker sauce. You could also serve with rice or flat bread.For an even better variable you can even serve chilled or warm in a wrap!

Serves 4

Ingredients
1 chicken cut into portions(Full/half bird)
For the marinade
1 thumb sized piece of ginger finely diced
3 cloves of garlic
2 teaspoons turmeric
1 teaspoon smoked paprika
1 tablespoon ground cinnamon

2 teaspoons ground coriander
1 teaspoon crushed cumin seeds
1 teaspoon chili powder
1 small pot of natural fat free Greek Yogurt/plain yoghurt
1 tablespoon honey
Salt and Pepper
