  • 3.

    Brown chicken in a little oil.

  • 4.

    Add chopped shallots.

  • 5.

    Stir fry until shallots just start to go soft & are bright green.

  • 6.

    Return chicken to pan and sitr until chicken is about 2 min from being cooked.

  • 7.

  • 8.

    Meanwhile, in another pan heat yoghurt but do not boil.
