100g homedade breadcrumbs or Japanese panko breadcrumbs

Medium egg noodles, to serve

1 tbsp plain flour
2 tsp medium curry powder
300ml chicken stock
1 teaspoons honey

2. To make the sauce, heat the oil in a small non-stick saucepan, then add the onion and garlic and cook for 2-3 mins, until softened. Add the carrots and sweat for 10 mins, until tender and starting to caramelise. Stir in the flour and curry powder and cook for 1 min. Gradually pour in the stock until combined, then add the honey, soy sauce and bay leaf and bring to the boil. Turn down the heat and simmer for 20 mins, so the sauce thickens but is still of pouring consistency. Add the garam masala, then transfer to a food processor (or use a stick blender) and whiz until smooth. Return to the pan and keep on a low heat until ready to serve.

3. Heat the sunflower oil in a frying pan and fry the breaded chicken breasts for 5 mins on each side, or until golden and cooked through.

4. Remove from the pan with a slotted spoon and leave to drain on kitchen paper.
