Skip the Friday night takeaway with this flavour-filled chicken dish. Serve with a crunchy winter salad for some extra healthy brownie points.

Preparation time: 120 minutes • Cooking time: 25 minutes

Serves: 4 people


    0.5 tsp Cayenne Pepper
    4 x Chicken Breast
    1 tbsp Garam Masala
    2 cloves Garlic crushed
    1 tsp Ground Cumin
    250 ml Natural Yogurt
    1 tsp Salt
    1 bunch Fresh Coriander leaves, to garnish
    2 cm Fresh Ginger grated
    2 x  Lemons, juice only
    1 tsp Sunflower Oil
    2 tbsp Tomato Purée
    1 tsp Turmeric

To Serve

    4 wedges Lime
    4 slices SuperValu Naan Bread
    1 drop SuperValu Signature Tastes Mango Chutney 300g


1. Cut a few light diagonal slashes in the chicken and place in an ovenproof baking dish. Pour the lemon juice over the chicken, then sprinkle over the turmeric and cumin. Add the oil and turn to evenly coat the chicken. Allow to marinate for about 30 minutes.

2. Meanwhile, mix the garlic, ginger, tomato purée and spices with yogurt. Spread this over each chicken breast, making sure to rub it into the slashes. Leave to marinate in the fridge for at least 2 hours but preferably overnight.

3. Preheat the oven to 200°C/ gas mark 6.

4. Bake the chicken in the oven for 25 minutes, until it is completely cooked through, basting it with the marinade now and then as it cooks.

5. Garnish with fresh coriander leaves and serve with warmed naan bread, mango chutney and lime wedges on the side.

Baked apples / jam / crumble

Added: 14/06/17 : 16:29:40

A rather tasty treat if you're a fan of crumble!

Preparation time: 10 minutes • Cooking time: 20 minutes

Serves: 6 people


    Crumble mix
    Damson Jam
    2 tbsp Gorgonzola
    250 ml Cream
    6 x  Granny Smith Apples


    Cut thin top off apples, also cut thin slice off bottom of apple to make sure they sit even in
    your baking dish.

    Take core out of apples and also scoop out a little all around the top of the apple to make a well
    to hold crumble mix.

    Fill centre of apple with Damson Jam, sprinkle with crumble mix and bake in oven at 200 degrees
    for 20 minutes until golden.

    While apples are cooking put cream and blue cheese into saucepan and heat until cheese is melted.
    Pour into serving bowl, cover to prevent skin forming.
    When ready to serve apples put a good dollop of blue cheese mixture on top.

    If you don’t like Blue Cheese just use pouring cream or custard or both.
