Healthy Meal Prep - Curried Chicken Breast

By : Benjamin Chew
20 March 2019

At the start of this year, I resolved to lead a healthier lifestyle, which I believe can be achieved through healthier eating habits (80%) and frequent exercise (20%).

The common misconception is that healthy food tastes bland, especially so with chicken breast. A quick solution is to ensure that you marinate it adequately! I prefer using curry powder, as it has a lot of health benefits like aiding digestion and boosting bone regrowth. Another key tip is to substitute rich ingredients like coconut milk with low-fat plain yoghurt – which is what I have done for this recipe.

If you would like to try a healthier diet but do not have the time to cook, this is perfect for you!

Ingredients (Serves 2)

2 pieces of chicken breast (about 200 grams each)
½ cup of non-fat plain yogurt
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 teaspoons curry powder
2 teaspoons chilli powder (adjust according to your preference)
1 teaspoon finely chopped garlic

 

  1. Debone the chicken breast. Make sure to remove the skin and fats.
  2. Preheat the oven at 350 degrees.
  3. Mix all the condiments into a small bowl.
  4. Coat the chicken breast evenly on both sides and place it onto a baking tray.
  5. Cook for about 30 minutes.
  6. Rest the chicken for about 5 minutes. Serve with your favourite vegetables.

There you have it! A healthy and simple recipe to start your endeavour into healthy eating!
