Instructions

Marinade the Chicken
1

Preheat your oven to 220°C/200°C fan/gas mark 7.

Trim the carrots, then halve lengthways (no need to peel). Chop into roughly 1cm wide, 5cm long batons. Add to a lined baking tray.

Cut each chicken thigh into 2cm chunks. Add to a medium bowl with the Sri Lankan style curry powder and the olive oil (see pantry). Season with salt and pepper and mix to coat.

Set aside to marinate. IMPORTANT: Wash your hands and equipment after handling raw chicken and its packaging. 

Roast the Carrots
2

Add half the ginger puree and a drizzle of olive oil over the carrots. Season with salt and pepper, then toss the tray to coat evenly. Spread out in a single layer.

When the oven is hot, roast the carrots on the top shelf until tender, 20-25 mins. Turn halfway through.

Meanwhile, halve the bell pepper and discard the core and seeds. Slice into thin strips. Trim the green beans, then cut into thirds. 

 

Fry the Chicken
3

Heat a large frying pan on medium-high heat with a drizzle of oil.

Once hot, add the chicken and the sliced pepper. Season with salt and pepper.

Fry the chicken until seared on all sides, 8-10 mins. Turn frequently. 

 

Roast the Green Beans
4

When the carrots have 10 mins remaining, add the green beans to the tray.

Add the remaining ginger puree and a drizzle of oil. Toss to coat evenly. Season with salt and pepper. 

Return the veg to the top shelf of your oven, until softened and slightly charred, 8-10 mins.

Finish the Curry
5

Add the yellow Thai style paste to the chicken, stirring frequently, until fragrant, 1 min. 

To finish the chicken, turn the heat down to medium-low and add the coconut milk and vegetable stock paste to the pan.

Cover with a lid and cook until the chicken is cooked through and tender, 5-6 mins. IMPORTANT: The chicken is cooked when no longer pink in the middle.

Serve
6

Share the Sri Lankan inspired chicken thigh curry between your bowls.

Serve the ginger roasted vegetables on the side.
