Simple, tasty and full of healthy goodness. Sometimes favours express themselves best when you keep things minimal, and this is the case with this unassuming Chicken ‘curry’, made with Organic Sheep Yoghurt, Garlic, Mushroom and Leeks. You get taste, texture and comfort without the huge calorie burden quite common with curries. And as you know, we do things differently at AdapNation – in this case we’ve switched the rice for a Sweet Potato jacket topped with lactose free Soft White Cheese. Together – yum! 😋 Not to mention the heavy dose of prebiotic goodness for a healthy happy microbiome.
For a smaller portion, pick a smaller 200g Sweet Potato and drop to 200g Chicken with 70g of Sheep Yoghurt. This would save you 171 calories, without compromising on the flavours or nutritional goodness whatsoever.
