Is very low fat yoghurt ok simmered for some time ? My first time with fat free fromage frais was a disaster so since then I've added any of the 'creamy stuff' after cooking but I would love to add it during cooking and heat up the following day for lunch.

Ive just re read this and realised that its the same ingredients but slightly diff preparation. With the one we do which is sw curry, you put the onion in the stock, boil covered for 5 mins or so, then simmer uncovered and allow a lot of the liquid to disperse. Then add the spices, and simmer for 5 mins, then add the chicken and simmer til cooked. When cooked drain the cooking liquid off the chicken mixture and mix the yogurt slowly in to the cooking sauce, then add the sauce back to the chicken - this stops the seperation. Ive reheated the following day without a proble.

Does anyone know if this is freezable??

Probably is as long as you don't drain off the liquid and add the yoghurt before freezing. Once defrosted, reheat, drain off the liquid and then stir in the yoghurt.
Certainly worth a try.
