Tasty Chicken Hotpot

Monday, September 27, 2010

This is the dish you can make when you invite the parents around to show them you really can make it on your own, and that you don’t need your mother to wash your socks anymore! Chicken thighs are a good, cost-effective cut of meat and will hold really well in the freezer, so pick up a few packs.

Serves 4
1 tablespoon olive oil
8 chicken thighs
2 red onions, sliced into thick slices
5 carrots, cut into rough chunks
3 celery sticks, cut into rough slices
400g tin chopped tomatoes
600ml chicken stock
2 teaspoons English mustard
1 teaspoons dried oregano
Sea salt and ground black pepper

Heat the oil in a large, high-sided pot until it’s really hot. Add the chicken and brown on both sides. Remove from the pan and set aside on a plate. There should be enough oil and fat left in the pan, but if not just add another little drop.

Add the red onions and fry until soft. Add the carrots and celery and cook for three to four minutes, stirring every now and then.

Pour in the chopped tomatoes and chicken stock and stir though with the mustard and oregano. Add in the browned chicken and season with sea salt and ground black pepper. Bring to the boil, then reduce the heat and place the lid on and simmer gently for 45-55 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Serve in deep bowls with some thick, crusty bread to soak up the juices.

    This was so delicious. I added some pre-cooked chickpeas and a little bit of oriental spice (ras-al-hanout) and it blew us away!
    We tried it with rice but i have to admit that it tastes best with dark bread!
    Thank you for the recipe!
