Curried Chicken Parcels

READY IN: 1hr 10mins
Recipe by -Sylvie-

This is so easy to make, but everybody loves it. I found it in a magazine a few months ago and have made it quite a few times since. They are nice eaten hot or cold, so ideal to take on a picnic. If I make them for a picnic I usually make them half the size. The coriander in this recipe refers to fresh coriander leaves/cilantro.

LOVED THIS!!! My DH loves food spicy and I think this is the first dish I've prepared for him that was spicy enough!!! Once the cutting and dicing is done the preparation is a slam dunk. Personally, I like the cutting and dicing so this was easy for me!! I added a dollop of sour cream next to mine to quell the heat and DH tasted it and said he would use it just for the taste alone!! Thanks, Sylvie!!!
