Method

  1. Mix together the garlic, ginger, chilli, soy sauce and tomato purée, then add the chicken and leave it to marinate while you prep the rest of the ingredients.

Really yummy - made less for 2 and it worked well.

Also tried the easy thai noodle soup which was really good, though I didn't used the chilli as I was already using Thai Red curry paste which I thought would be enough.
