Today we are presenting a fabulous recipe for a one course meal that is both light and spicy, ideal for those who love ethnic flavours and aromas:  curried chicken strips with courgettes. This dish is perfect for rustling up a last minute lunch or dinner or the ideal lunchbox filler for an original and alternative midday break. 

It is so simple to make curried chicken strips with courgettes: here’s the complete recipe!


Cook the basmati rice in a pan of boiling salted water with the addition of a few cloves.  Wash the courgettes, trim the ends and dice them. Wash the peppers, remove the seeds and filaments and then dice them evenly. Pan toss the vegetables with a little oil, salt and pepper. Let the vegetables cook for a few minutes.   


Roast the cashews in a frying pan with a couple of sage leaves.  Slice the AIA Sottilissime chicken into fine strips. Take a frying pan and gently fry the chopped shallot in oil, add the curry and, after a few seconds, add the chicken strips. Season with salt and pepper to taste and remove from the heat after a few minutes. Separate the basmati rice grains using a fork and fill the food mould. Place the vegetables on top of the rice, followed by the chicken in its curry sauce. Enjoy!
