time to eat korma {MorrisonsMum}

Not quite a ready meal, but pretty close!  Chicken korma with rice and naan bread, on the table in less than 30 minutes.  As Petal is a vegetarian we usually all eat the fake chicken (I know that sounds decidedly unappetising, but that's what we call it!), but spotted some fresh chicken breasts in the quick sale still fresh section, so did a veggie korma and a chicken korma.  It's not as fiddly as it sounds - just two saucepans to stir instead of one (using different spoons of course).  Instructions for the veggie version are in green.

What do I need?

  • 3 fresh chicken breasts
  • Morrisons chicken style vegetarian pieces (...fake chicken!)
  • Rice for 5 people
  • Jar of korma sauce
  • Pack of 4 naan bread

What do I do?

  1. Chop the chicken into chunks.  Measure out ⅓ of the pack of fake chicken.
  2. Heat a couple of tablespoons of oil into two saucepans on a medium heat.  
  3. Chicken into one saucepan, fake chicken into the other.  
  4. Measure 6 cups of rice and 6 cups of water into the rice cooker and start (or follow instructions on rice packaging if you don't have a rice cooker, then go out tomorrow and buy a rice cooker)
  5. Once chicken has browned, add ¾ of the sauce into first pan and stir.  Add remaining sauce to fake chicken saucepan, stir.
  6. Turn oven on high and put naan bread directly on the shelves.
  7. Stir both the chicken and fake chicken saucepans, and take off the heat after 10 minutes.
  8. Serve rice, curry and naan bread dish out onto plates.
  9. Eat up!

{I was given Morrisons vouchers by Morrisons / BritMums which were used to purchase the ingredients for this meal, but all opinions are mine and are the truth - I promise!}
