A firm favourite in our family, corned beef stew is a relatively cheap dish, always guaranteed to please. Using the quantities below, this should provide 6-8 servings although as with all good stews, it can be kept in the fridge for 2-3 days and be reheated, tasting just as good as the moment you made it! Alternatively, lower or increase the amounts depending on your requirements.
Chicken breasts and drumsticks baked with artichoke hearts and black olives in white wine and chicken stock; a touch of tarragon provides a perfect finish to this savoury Mediterranean-inspired dish. Serve with crusty bread to mop up the delicious juices.

Makes a whole meal in just one roasting tin - an ideal family weeknight dinner. Add in whatever vegetables or seasonings you have handy.

I took a look around the site for a recipe like this, and not having found one, I decided to have a go creating one. My family really enjoy it. You can adjust the heat to your own preference. You could also omit the chicken for a nutritious vegetarian option. I think it's pretty versatile. It would be delicious served with tortilla chips, guacamole and a fresh green salad. Hope you like it!
