Lamb with Cuban Rice and Chimichurri

Lamb and chimichurri are made for each other! The acidity and mild heat of the chimichurri cuts through the richness of the lamb and goes fantastically well with the cuban rice.

A really easy chicken curry recipe offering loads of flavour and sauce. Hotter or milder can easily be achieved by varying the curry paste used, or ading extra chillies to the herb marinade.
