Ingredients

Ingredients

  • 1 bunch Broccolini®
  • 200g Fioretto® Cauli Blossom
  • 1/2 cup butter chicken paste
  • 2 tbs Greek yoghurt
  • 600g chicken thigh or breast, trimmed, cut into 5cm pieces
  • 60g ghee or 3 tbs vegetable oil
  • 1 brown onion, finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup roasted salted cashews, finely chopped
  • 1 cup tomato passata or puree
  • 1 cup chicken stock
  • 1/2 cup thickened cream
  • yoghurt, coriander leaves, warmed naan, to serve

Method

  1. Combine 1 tablespoon each of butter chicken paste and yoghurt in a bowl. Add chicken and stir to coat.
  2. Heat 1 tablespoon ghee or oil in a large non-stick frying pan over a medium heat. Add half the chicken and cook for 2-3 minutes each side until golden. Remove to a plate. Repeat with more ghee and remaining chicken. Cover to keep warm.
  3. Melt remaining ghee in the frying pan over medium heat. Add the onion and cook, stirring often for 4-5 minutes until onion is soft. Stir in the remaining paste and cook, stirring for 2 minutes. Add the cashews and cook for 1 minute. Stir in passata and stock. Return the chicken to the pan and add the Broccolini® and Fioretto®. Cover and simmer gently for 4-6 minutes until vegetables are tender.
  4. Stir in cream and simmer for 1-2 minutes, until sauce reduced slightly. Top with yoghurt and coriander.  Serve with the naan.

Tip: Vegetables in butter chicken sauce is a great option, replace the chicken with 800g steamed pumpkin; ignore steps 1 and 2 above, using the 1/2 cup paste in step 3.
