- 10-12 fresh curry leaves
- 2 tbsp Sri Lankan curry powder

- Preheat the oven to 150C.
- Add the Sri Lankan curry powder, turmeric, ginger beer, marmalade and garlic to a small saucepan. Place over low heat and cook until mixture is smooth and a sauce like consistency.
- Line a high sided baking tray with baking paper. Place the chicken Marylands in a single layer across the base. Pour over the jam and ginger beer mixture, you want the chicken to be partially submerged in the liquid.

Remove from oven, scatter with fresh curry leaves and coriander and serve with a side of coconut rice.
