Tray Baked Yellow Chicken Curry

24 August 2020 By

A beautiful one tray dish that you can make with your preferred cut of chicken – what’s not to like?

Sometimes I make this dish with a whole butterflied chicken or even one that I have quartered into a couple of larger pieces. Serve this dish with rice, baguette or sourdough to mop up all the lovely juices. Simplicity with stunning flavours.
