December Recipe: Chicken!


December Recipe: Chicken!

by Elsa Winckler

A recipe for what I call the Chicken dish

  • 100 mil extra virgin oil
  • 150 ml plain white flour
  • 60 ml paprika
  • sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 free-range chicken, portioned
  • 20 small baby onions, peeled
  • 2 green peppers, grilled, peeled and pitted
  • 2 gloves garlic, peeled and chopped
  • 5 ripe tomatoes peeled and pitted (or canned – not the same, but works if you’re in a hurry)
  • 50 ml salted buter
  • 20 small fresh mushrooms
  • fresh parsley and basmati rice

Heat the oil in a casserole.

Mix flour, paprika and seasoning – cover chicken with mixture. Brown the pieces.

Add baby onions

Cut green peppers in strips and add.

Add garlic

Cut tomatoes in strips – catch all the juices and add.

Add enough water for the dish to simmer.

While the chicken is cooking (should take about an hour), melt butter in a pan, allow it to brown and add mushrooms. Fry until they have caramelised.

When serving, pour mushrooms over dish, add parsley and same with basmati rice.
