Chicken tikka saag topped with almonds and pickled red onions

My favourite curry in the whole world is chicken tikka saag. It’s fresh but also rich in flavour and also has a little kick whilst being creamy – perfect. Making your own curry is also highly satisfying; don’t get me wrong, I love going for a curry after a few drinks but when at home,…

Creamy Tomato and Pancetta Chicken

This is a bit of a wintry dish for July! But the fresh, zingy and bright flavours of tomato give a real lift to a usual chicken ‘stew’. It’s a bit of a 70’s dish, but that doesn’t mean it’s bad! I love chicken and chicken in a tasty sauce is even better. Try serving…
