Jazz up this easy midweek meal by adding other veg to the sauce with the potatoes; sugar snaps and baby corn would work well, as would quartered pak choi.

Ingredients

  • 400g new potatoes, quartered
  • 8 free-range skinless and boneless chicken thighs, cut into 3cm chunks
  • 3 tbsp red Thai curry paste (we like Thai Taste)
  • 400ml tin reduced-fat coconut milk
  • 150g spinach

From the storecupboard

  • Olive oil for frying

To serve (optional)

  • Greek yogurt, lime wedges and fresh mint or coriander

Method

  1. Bring a medium pan of water to the boil, then cook the potatoes for 10 minutes or until almost tender. Drain well.
  2. Heat a glug of oil in a large, deep frying pan. Add the drained potatoes and the chicken, then fry for 10 minutes on a high heat or until they start to turn golden.
  3. Stir in the curry paste and fry for a few minutes, then add the coconut milk. Bring to a gentle simmer, then cook for 20 minutes or until the chicken and potatoes are tender – add a splash of water if the sauce becomes too thick.
  4. Stir the spinach into the curry and leave to wilt for 5 minutes. Taste, season if needed, then serve. It’s good as is, but garnish with a dollop of yogurt, lime wedges for squeezing and a few fresh mint or coriander leaves if you have them to hand.
