Frequently Asked Questions

Chicken korma is a mild type of curry that is bursting with aromatic flavours that has a blend of spices that are not too hot. If you’re not a fan of heat or are looking for a mild alternative then this is the perfect level of spice for you.

Chicken Thighs can be cut bone-in or boneless with skinless or skin-on. If we had to choose our favourite Chicken Thigh cut, we would choose boneless skin-on chicken thighs. Skin-on chicken thighs give a deliciously crisp finish and take the stress out of deboning chicken thighs.

You might have heard of chicken thigh meat pink still being pink even when cooked. Poultry can sometimes show a pinkish tinge after being fully cooked or even overcooking chicken. When it comes down to checking if the meat is cooked and safe to eat, it's best to measure the temperature.

Using a meat thermometer is highly beneficial. if your fully cooked chicken has an internal temperature of 165 degrees and the juices are running clear then you are good to go.
