Chicken Laska

March 11, 2019 at 4:31 PM

Inspired by Annabel Langbein, this Chicken Laksa is a delicious, nutritionally balanced dinner which bursts with flavour and leaves you feeling warm and satisfied. I love having this all year round, as it can be both refreshing from all the fresh asian flavours on a summers day, or warming on a winter night where you want to snuggle up with a soup.

It contains good healthy fats from the coconut cream, which helps reduce hunger after the meal. Suitable for those who are dairy and/or gluten-free, and can be made vegetarian by swapping the chicken for boiled eggs OR prawns.
