No Count Chicken Curry

A lovely, spicy curry with added potatoes for a bit of a variety.

Ingredients (serves 4):

  • 4 chicken breasts, chopped into chunks and seasoned
  • 8 potatoes, peeled and cut into chunks
  • an onion, thinly sliced
  • 4 garlic cloves, crushed
  • a small piece of ginger, peeled and grated
  • 1 – 3 chillies (depending on how hot you would like it)
  • a cinnamon stick
  • 5 cloves
  • a tbsp garam masala
  • a tsp turmeric
  • a tbsp ground coriander
  • 2 tbsp chopped fresh coriander
  • 400g tin of chopped tomatoes
  • 400ml chicken stock
  • a packet of green beans; chop them in half



  1. Spray a wok/deep frying pan with Frylight and cook the cinnamon stick, cloves and onion for 5 mins.
  2. Add the garlic, ginger and chillies (sliced) and cook for a further 2 mins.
  3. Add the tomatoes, chicken, stock, spices and fresh coriander. Bring to the boil and simmer for 20 mins, with a lid on.
  4. Add the potatoes and green beans, season well, and cook for a further 15-20 mins, or until the potatoes are cooked.
  5. Enjoy!

  1. Do you think I could use passata instead of chopped tomatoes? I don’t like bits so usually make a curry with mayflower curry sauce (I’m weird lol ) but making my usual curry yesterday was 6 points.

    1. Morning Jenny, it should be fine using passata – and it would be great saving you those points too. Hope you have a lovely day, 💕 Helen xxxx

    1. Hi Nicola, what a lovely message from you – thank you! I think the chickpeas would be amazing and I’ll certainly try that myself when I next make it. Hope you have a fab rest of the week, Helen xxx

    1. Thanks Marie – it’s great to hear that all the family enjoyed it. Hope you have a fab rest of the week, Helen xxx

  3. I made this the other night and it was amazing, I added peppers and mushrooms to the recipe and used less potatoes. Thank you so much for sharing the recipe. Can’t wait to make it again

    1. Hi Jemima, what a great idea to add the peppers and mushrooms too – I’ll try that next time. Hope you have a lovely long weekend! Helen xxx

      1. It is indeed yummy in the slow cooker. Prepared it this morning minus the potatoes and was delicious tonight. Even my little boy ate it- so much nicer to serve up good tasty food and know exactly what’s in it. Loved it! Thank u 👍

        1. That’s great news – especially that your little boy enjoyed it too. Eating fewer processed foods is one of the things I love about No Count and I’m sure that’s helped contribute to the weight loss too. Thank you very much for the feedback and I hope you all enjoy the next recipe you try:-) Helen xxx
