Coconut Chicken Curry
with lentils and coriander cauliflower rice
This chicken curry is creamy and rich, but it's also got plenty of healthy elements to shout about. Protein and fibre filled lentils are a great addition to any meal, while cauliflower acts as a substitute side for more starchy white rice.
