Recipe – Student Special Chicken Curry

It’s that time of year! I’ve done a few Student Special recipes, inspired by my son Niclas who went to university this year. Check this out alongside my other Student Special recipes which I’ll be doing over the next month.

All recipes feed 3-4, so can feed groups or the main can be chilled for reuse the next day. I also show a cost based on Tesco Value or standard ingredient.

To feed 3-4, you will need:

  • 375g diced chicken
  • Two small red onions
  • 1 green pepper
  • 300g white rice
  • 1 tin mulligatawny soup
  • Salt & pepper

I estimate the cost is £4.08 in total, a maximum of £1.36 per serving.

Chop the onions and fry in a little oil in a big frying pan. Once browning a little, add the diced chicken (most pre-diced chicken has quite a large dice size so cut them all in half) and fry to brown all sides. Make sure you stir regularly. Chop the peppers and add these too, fry for another couple of minutes.

Add the soup and stir. Season with a little salt and pepper. If you like a hot curry, add half a teaspoon of curry powder. Simmer gently.

Boil a large pan with salted water. Add 300g of white rice, stir and simmer until cooked. While the rice if cooking, stir the curry regularly.

Serve the curry on a bed of rice.
