Method

For the curry paste, prep all the ingredients and blend together until smooth in a blender, then cover all the chicken in the curry paste until well covered and set aside to marinate.

Pre-heat an oven to 180 degrees.

Heat two cast iron frypans and quickly coat the chicken with a little oil before sealing them in the frypans. Seal all corners before putting them into a hot oven for about 12 minutes. Once they have reached a internal temperature of 72 degrees Remove and allow to rest before plating.
