Healthy Chicken Curry with Sweet Potato & Chickpeas

a creamy one-pot curry you'll love

By: Izy Hossack
This healthy chicken curry is a delicious weeknight meal or as a weekend meal-prep idea, especially as the flavour of the sauce develops after a day in the fridge. The additions of chickpeas, roasted sweet potato and spinach bring so much flavour and texture to the creamy coconut-tomato sauce. Served with a side of brown rice (or maybe some protein bread!), you’ll find it hard to resist going in for second servings.


  • Heat ½ tbsp of the coconut oil in a deep frying pan or wide pot. Add the onions and a pinch of salt and cook over a medium low heat, stirring occasionally, until softened and starting to brown - around 10 minutes.
  • Stir in the garlic and ginger and cook for 1 minute more. Add the tomato paste and cook for a further 2-3 minutes until darkened. Pour in the chopped tomatoes and spices along with 250ml water.
  • Pour the contents of the frying pan into a blender and blitz until smooth (alternatively pour into a bowl and use a hand blender to blitz until smooth).
  • Wipe out the pan and return it to the heat. Add the remaining ½ tbsp coconut oil along with the diced chicken breast. Cook over a medium heat, stirring occasionally, until the chicken is lightly browned. Add the sweet potatoes, chickpeas, coconut milk and the blended sauce. Bring to a boil then turn down to simmer for 10 minutes until slightly reduced.
  • Stir in the baby spinach until wilted. Taste the curry and season with salt, as needed.
  • Cook the rice according to the packet and serve with the curry. You can add fresh coriander, sliced chillies and yogurt on top if you want.
  • Enjoy!
Try serving with a side of homemade protein naan to soak up all that delicious sauce.
