Boil water for pasta with a pinch of salt.
Add fusilli pasta and cook following the instructions on the package.
Drain, rinse with water and set aside.
Place the chicken on a chopping board and cover with cling film.
Gently pound the chicken breast with a pestle to evenly flatten it.
Season with a pinch of salt and black pepper on both sides.
Heat a frying pan with oil.
Place the breast into the pan and brown it, frying for 2 minutes on each side over high heat.
Pour ¼ cup of water.
Cover with a lid, reducing the heat slightly, and simmer for 3 minutes over medium-high heat. Turn over, cover with the lid again and simmer for 3 more minutes.
Remove from the heat and set aside for cooling, then slice.
In a bowl mix curry powder with turmeric and lemon juice. Blend in the soft cheese until smooth. Add Greek yoghurt and mix.
Dice red onion and bell pepper, chop coriander and add to the bowl.
Place all ingredients into the mixing bowl and stir gently until all combine well.
Chill until ready to serve.
Garnish with fresh coriander for serving.
