This is another of the Hairy Bikers Diet recipes. In their cook book it is for 6 people, but I reduced it down to two people as follows. A great dish which is perfect for my seeming addiction for chicken and tomato dishes!
Serves 2, 13 WW pro points per serving
200g chicken thighs, skinless and boneless
1 tsp cornflour, heaped, made up with a little water
2 tsp olive oil
1 can chopped tomatoes
1 onion, halved and finely sliced
2 cloves garlic, crushed
1 tbsp plain or smoked paprika
200ml chicken stock
2 peppers one red, one green
1 tsp dried mixed herbs
300g potatoes boiled and crushed
2 tbs half fat creme fraich
Heat oil in a pan and fry the onions until softened and slightly coloured, cut the chicken into nice bite sized pieces season with pepper and add to the pan.
Cook for 5 minutes until lightly coloured add the garlic and paprika, cook for a further minute. Pour in the tomatoes and stock, add bay leaf and dried herbs. Bring to a simmer, cover and cook for 15 minutes stirring occasionally.
Take the peppers deseed and cut into chunky pieces, add to the chicken and continue cooking for a further 20 mins.
Mix up the cornflour and add to the pan, stir until thickened.
Serve with crushed potatoes and a tablespoon on half fat creme fraiche.
Welcome to my cooking diary. I am a fairly good cook willing to try most things, I hope to continue to expand my repertoire and cook healthy (ish) dishes. I use this blog as a aide memoire so I don't forget what I have cooked!
