25 Minute Peanut Butter Chicken Curry

If you’ve got access to a decent spice cupboard at home, you don’t need to buy curry paste to make a hearty curry like this one from the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge.

It’s curry meets satay in this dish, packed full of warming spices to fill even the hungriest of bellies.

Plus, make in a large batch and then store portions in the freezer to defrost and reheat for an easy, nutritious meal in no time.

If you love healthy takeaway as much as we do, join us on the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge.
