  • Mix together the yogurt, garlic, lime juice and then a spoonful of curry powder and coriander, taste it and check how hot you want it! Add more powder and/or coriander as you wish.
  • Put the chopped chicken into the bowl and mix to coat it thoroughly. Cover the bowl and leave to marinate overnight or for a few hours at least in the fridge.
  • Lay out pieces on a baking tray and cook for about 15-20mins at about 200c (the time and temp are approximate because I like this quite dry and a bit dark but you might like it softer).
  • Let it cool and serve on green salad with fresh chopped coriander and lime to squeeze.
