1 (400g) tin chopped tomatoes or punnet cherry tomatoes or 6 fresh tomatoes, chopped
2 tablespoons tomato puree
Pinch salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste
Method Prep:10min › Cook:50min › Ready in:1hr
Heat oil in a heavy pan over high heat and fry chicken until lightly golden.
Add onion, celery, carrots and garlic. Move them around the pan before adding the wine.
Turn down the heat, add the tomatoes, tomato puree, salt and pepper. Cover and simmer on a low heat for 50 - 60 minutes (the longer the better). You could also bake it in the oven at 200 degrees C, if you prefer. Taste and season with salt and pepper before serving.
You can serve it with mash or just eat it with a crusty baguette.
You can bulk it out with cauliflower florets - these taste great in the stew because they absorb all the flavours.
Am a very fussy eater and I adored this I swapped from chicken to Quorn as I'm trying to lose some weightl and it works just as well. Definitely a win for my family and for my bank balance. - 20 Oct 2012
