Easy Slow Cooker Chicken And Spinach Balti

This low fat chicken balti has the added goodness of spinach added too. Very simple and easy to make without the added oil you get in Indian restaurants, this has become a firm family favourite.




Serves 3-4

Ingredients

3 or 4 chicken breasts diced or you can use thighs
2 cloves of garlic chopped
1/2 of a 283g jar of Pataks Balti Spice Paste
200g of chopped tomatoes
1/2 red pepper
1/2 yellow pepper
200ml hot chicken stock
1/2 bag of fresh spinach or you can use 6-8 small blocks of frozen
tablespoon tomato puree (optional)
chopped coriander to serve

Method

Fry the garlic and Balti spice paste in a little oil for a minute or two.
Add chicken, peppers, chicken stock and tomato puree if using.
Bring to a simmer then transfer to a slow cooker.
Add the spinach.
Cook on high for 4 hours or low for 8 hours.
When cooked stir in chopped coriander and serve with rice and nan bread.
