Choosing the Right Chicken Cut

Thighs - Ideal for slow cooking, rich in flavour.

Breast - Great, but can go stringy in a bain-marie.

Whole Chicken - Use the entire bird for maximum value.

The Magic of Curry Sauce

Our secret is the Ceres Curry sauce, infused with spices like turmeric, cumin, and chilli powder. It's a timesaver that delivers a rich, satisfying flavour.


1. Marinate the Chicken: Mix chicken, lemon juice, garlic, ginger, and chilli, and leave for at least 2 hours, or ideally overnight.

2. Preheat the Oven: Set it to 180°C.

3. Cook the Chicken: Add chicken and 50g oil to a tray and place in the oven.

4. Prepare the Sauce: In a large saucepan, sauté the onion in oil, then add coconut milk and simmer. Stir in Ceres curry sauce mixed with water and continue simmering until thick.

5. Combine: Tear or slice cooked chicken, and add to the saucepan with its juices.


This recipe may look challenging, but it's a breeze! You can multitask by making the most of the oven, cutting down prep time. We recommend portioning the curry into pots for on-demand warming, eliminating waste.

In the words of Mark Petrou: "Profit is made when closed, and sales are made when open." With this chicken curry, your profits and customer satisfaction will surely soar! Now isn't that a delightful cheat worth trying?
