What a DELIGHT! The Chicken sauce is just perfect – a blend of coconut yoghurt that brings both creaminess and a hint of the tropics, with the exciting spice combo of Paprika and Cinnamon, and then add a another layer with exotic Girollle Mushrooms. Throw in some Red Onions, Garlic Salt and Coriander and… wow! 😲. If that wasn’t another, cook up some buttery New Potatoes with Chives, and serve with a few stems of tasty Tenderstem Broccoli. Amazing. 😋
You can easily chop this down to a smaller portion and calorie hit by reducing everything except the Tenderstem Broccoli in half. This maintains the same taste and experience, whilst saving you 297 calories.
