Simple Chicken and Lentil Curry

I had some chicken breast in the freezer so decided to do one of my old favs last night - Simple Chicken and Lentil Curry. the original recipe is from an old Sainsburys Magazine but i have tweaked it slightly.

Serve with basmati rice and a nice bottle of rose.

350g chicken breast (diced)
sunflower oil
1 onion (chopped)
1 clove garlic (chopped)
2 tbs medium curry powder
1 cup of red lentils
400ml chicken stock
150g spinach
125g low fat natural yoghurt

fry onion and garlic in some oil in a large saucepan, add chicken until browned.

add curry powder, lentils and chicken stock, bring to boil then simmer until reduced considerably (the lentil will probably disintegrate but that's fine.)

check for flavour, add more curry powder if not hot enough.

add spinach to wilt, then stir in yoghurt to taste.

i am not usually a great advocate of curry powder (prefer to use individual spices) but it works in this dish as an over all flavour.
