Coronation pheasant ingredients

Ready in just 45 minutes

(including marinating time)

Let's get cooking...

  1. Mix 1tbsp of the curry powder with a little oil until you have a marinade the consistency of runny honey. Then add to a zip-lock bag with the pheasant breasts, give everything a good shake, and marinate for half an hour.
  2. Add the yoghurt to a bowl then mix in the remaining curry powder, turmeric, cinnamon, chutney, seasoning and – if desired – the sultanas. Put to one side.
  3. Cook the pheasant breasts in a medium-hot pan with a little oil for 4-5 minutes on each side, turning frequently.
  4. Allow the breasts to rest for a few minutes before tearing into strips and adding to the bowl of sauce. Mix well.
  5. Serve your coronation pheasant with salad and warm flatbreads.
