The chicken has to be seasoned on both sides with pepper and salt. Heat the vegetable oil in a skillet over high heat and fry the chicken breasts for about four minutes per side, until the meat loses its pink color. Transfer the chicken breast to a separate plate.

    Reducing the heat to medium, add the chopped green onion and curry paste into the skillet and stir cook for about a minute. Pour in the chicken broth into the skillet, bring the mixture to a boil, and cook for about ten minutes until the mixture is thickened.

    General Tips

    If you are suffering from continuous constipation, mix 1-two teaspoons crushed psyllium seeds (also known as isaghula) into a cup of hot water. Let it infuse for about two hours; add lemon and honey to taste, then drink it fully. Psyllium adds bulk and is the main ingredient in many over-the-counter, bulk-forming laxatives. You will find the seeds in most pharmacies and health food shops. You can also try this with flaxseed (linseed). As you increase your intake of fiber, also be sure to drink lots of water at least 250 ml of glass every day, as it is important for your health.
