2 large onions, finely chopped
3 garlic cloves, finely chopped
2 tablespoons curry powder
500 ml chicken stock
1 tablespoon chilli pesto or tomato purée
1/2 teaspoon sugar
2 tablespoons Crème Fraîche or natural yogurt
salt and freshly ground black pepper

1. Take the chicken breast and jointed into 10-12 pieces, and season them with salt and pepper.

2. Heat the oil in a deep frying pan. Add the chicken and brown it on all sides for 6–8 minutes over a medium heat. Set aside on a plate.

3. Cook the onions in the pan for 5 minutes until golden brown, stirring regularly. Add the garlic and curry powder and cook, stirring, for 1 minute.
