A quick and fuss free dinner. Searing the chicken locks in the flavour and moisture, and cooking it in chicken broth helps to keep the chicken extra moist. A great technique to use, especially when working with tough chicken breasts. This dish is really quite ordinary but the Curried Roasted Red Pepper Sauce added a wow factor to it.
