Curried Pulled Chicken Bagels

20160912_193046

Another one of my quick put together meals tonight, still had some chicken leftover and bagels from weekend so decided to give the pulled chicken idea a go. This was really tasty also low in fat and calories as I used the skinny bagels at 120 calories. A real Asian infused Spice dish with the fresh coriander makes a perfect Monday night dish!

Serves 2 or makes 4 bagels.

2 small chicken breasts (I cut into thick strips so that it would cook quicker)

2 tbsp of extra light philadelphia (spread for bagels)

1 Beef tomato – chopped into small chunks

1 onion – chopped into small chunks

1 red pepper – chopped into small chunks

1 tbsp olive oil

1 tsp ginger

1 tsp garlic powder

2 tsp Cumin powder

1 tsp Turmeric

1 tsp Gram Masala

1 tsp chilli flakes

Salt & pepper to taste

100g Creme Fraiche

300ml Vegetable stock

1 tbsp tomato puree

1 tsp cinnamon

1 tsp caster sugar

1 tbsp chopped coriander

 

  1. Firstly heat the olive oil in a shallow pan.
  2. Add in the chopped onion, red pepper, garlic and ginger cook on medium heat until onion and peppers are softened.                                                                                                             20160912_173959
  3. Now add in the tomato puree, cumin, gram masala, turmeric, cinnamon, chilli, sugar and mix through for a few minutes.
  4. Pour in the chopped tomatoes and vegetable stock, bring to the boil then reduce to a low simmer.
  5. Place the chicken into the sauce, cover the pan with a lid and simmer for approx 1 hour. 20160912_184732
  6. Remove the lid, mix in the Creme Fraiche and gently with 2 forks pull the chicken apart. Turn up the heat to medium and continue to cook for about 10 minutes until the sauce thickens up. 20160912_185058  20160912_190140
