  • 1 Bag of McCain Lighter Home Chips


  • 8 Chicken Thighs

  • 2 Tins of Chopped Tomatoes

  • 400g of Plain Yogurt

  • 2 Teapoons of Garam Masala

  • 1 Teaspoon of Chilli Powder

  • Salt

  • Pepper

  • 1 Brown Onion

  • Knob of Ginger

  • 2 Garlic Cloves


  • 1 Cucumber

  • 1 Red Onion

  • 1 Bag of Coriander

  • 1 Bag of Mint

  • 4 Tomatoes


  1. Preheat your oven to 180°C.

  2. Add the chips to a baking tray and place them in the oven for 30 minutes.

  3. Chop up your chicken thighs and add them to a bowl. Add most of the yogurt, leaving 2 tablespoons for later. Add the garam masala, chilli powder, grate one garlic clove and add this to the bowl followed by a sprinkle of salt and pepper. Mix together and set aside to marinate for 25 minutes (the longer the better).

  4. Dice the onions, cut the ginger into stalks and chop the remaining garlic clove. Add some olive oil to a frying pan followed by the onions, garlic, ginger and a small cup of water.

  5. Once your chicken is marinated, add it to the frying pan and give it a good stir. Add your chopped tomatoes and refill one of the tins with water and add that to the pan. Allow the curry to bubble and reduce for 20 minutes.

  6. After about 15 minutes of being in the oven, take your chips out and turn them over. Place them back in the oven for another 15 minutes.

  7. Once the curry has reduced, add a tablespoon of yogurt to the pan. Add half of the chopped coriander to the curry.

  8. For the salsa, chop up the tomatoes, cucumber, coriander and mint and mix together in a bowl.

  9. Take the chips out of the oven and you are ready to serve. Add some salsa and the remaining yogurt to the curry and tuck in.
