Serve with a side salad, vegetable rice or roti. 

Healthy Hints

The added bonus with this recipe is that it has less salt. While our bodies require a small amount of salt, for the sodium it contains, many of us consume far too much. The result? Excessive sodium can increase the risk of high blood pressure and stress the heart and blood vessels. Using herbs and spices is not only a great way to add an abundance of flavour to dishes, but also a smart way to reduce your intake of salt.

Ingredients

  • 500 g (2½ cups) fresh coriander, rinsed.

    25 g (¼ cup) black pepper, coarsely ground

    150 g (½ cup) tomato puree

    1 tsp salt

    50 ml (¼ cup) water

    2 tbsp olive oil

    6 chicken breasts, skinned and boneless, cut into 1 inch pieces.

Cooking Guide
  1. Place the coriander, black pepper, tomato puree, salt and water into a blender. Reserve some coriander for the garnish. Blend into a smooth paste.
  2. Heat the oil in a large saucepan on a medium heat.
  3. Add the chicken. Stir to evenly cook the pieces. Cover and cook for 10 minutes on a low heat.
