Cooked the chicken with ingredients in the slow cooker. Wilted some spinach and served. I didn't add the raisins.. not a fan. Was amazing! Will be making again :D

Is this recipe ok to have in the first phase of the program? Just not quite sure due to the ingredients...

How many calories is this dish per serve. I really enjoyed this dish. I didnt add the red wine turned out amasing.

christieandnick - I haven't made this but as I was reading everyone's comments I was thinking that I would poach the chicken breasts in some Chicken stock & water if I did make it. It would stay moist and absorb the flavours better.

Making this Tonight again :D Yum

how did everyone do the chicken? did u buy it cooked or did you buy the chicken breasts yourself & then cook them, if so how eg, in the oven, frypan?

It was great would never have thought i was eating diet food

Is this ok to have on the rapid diet? I wouldn't think Mango chutney and mayo would be something to have when you're trying to lose weight.

We recommend using a Mild Curry Paste in this recipe. For example, Patak's make a Mild Curry Paste, which is simply a curry paste containing basic curry flavours and ingredients. Many other types of curry pastes can also be used if preferred, but most other types have a very specific 'dish' taste which may change the overall flavour of this dish i.e. red curry, korma, tandoori etc. Whereas a plain Mild Curry Paste has a more generic curry flavour that tends to work well in this particular dish, as it allows the other ingredients to shine through. If you are struggling to find a plain mild curry paste, you could try mild curry powder (just a couple of teaspoons; you can add more or less to give it the amount of punch that you prefer). We're thrilled to hear so many of you have enjoyed this dish - thanks for the wonderful feedback!

Kimbers11 I had the exact same question - which is the best curry paste to use?


Fri Mar 22, 2013 at 10:04 AM

Not a big fan of this. It was ok, but although i followed the recipe, it tasted to much like mayo to me. A bit dissapointed.

Just wondering why not all recipes have the nutritional information listed below the recipes.

Going to make this tomorrow night, however just wondering what "curry paste" you suggest using? At the supermarket I can find a red curry paste or a green curry paste, but not just a plain curry paste? Please help so I get this delish sounding dish right

Mon Dec 31, 2012 at 11:42 PM

Loved this. Had it on top of cabbage. The rest of the family had it on rice. My 1 year old enjoyed it as well. Will cook again.


Mon Aug 20, 2012 at 12:37 PM

this was delicious great receipe thankyou so much !!

This was delicious. I made a slaw salad of finely sliced or grated cabbage, carrot, small amount of cheese and spring onions and red capsicum. It tasted great with the chicken. The sauces was rich and scrum-didily-umcious (as my 5 yo would say).

It's me

This was yummy, I didnt use the wine but chicken stock instead. I doubled the recipe as I am feeding 6 people (4 teenagers!!!) I cooked rice for them to have with theres. It went down well and I will make it again :)


Fri Jul 22, 2011 at 10:38 PM

This looks really delicious so I will be giving this a go tonight! I'm not a lover of raisins nor is my husband so I will be leaving those out!


Sun Jul 03, 2011 at 2:19 AM

Made this last night for the family, It was lovely lots of sauce which I did not expect! Will defo make it again soon


Sun Jun 12, 2011 at 8:58 PM

This is delicious, have cooked it twice now, and tasted just as good second time around, not doubt will be cooking it again as the family love it. First time I made it we had salad with it, which strangely works with curry, the second time I put it on a bed of spinach and served some veggies on the side. It is so easy to prepare and is very filling x


Wed Jun 08, 2011 at 5:33 AM

This is utterly amazing, the dish is BEAUTIFUL! i recommend to try it without the red wine as it gives a lovely thick creamy soft taste. Really good will deffinitly be having this again and again! xx


Thu Feb 10, 2011 at 8:11 PM

Making this tonight,looks lovely :)


Tue Feb 08, 2011 at 2:00 AM

Delicious combination of ingredients, made this for myself on Friday night and loved it!
