Chicken, sweet potato & coconut curry

What will this recipe make?

This is enough for dinner for 3-4 people, is quick to prepare and looks after itself in the oven. Serve it with basmati rice or noodles of your choice. The red split lentils go mushy and make for a thicker, creamier sauce.

This recipe is inspired by attending a fermentation workshop with Trish Dent. Fermenting foods is a way of preserving foods but also a way of converting starches and sugars into lactic acid by Lactobacilli bacteria (good bacteria) and inhibiting bad bacteria. This helps promote a healthy intestinal flora.
