Recipe: Bruscan chicken stew!

Did a Mexican chicken stew last week which was such a triumph I've decided to share the recipe. I've adapted it to include only ingredients that you'll easily find in any size of supermarket.

500g diced chicken breast
Sunflower oil
1 dessert spoon of salt
1 large chopped onion
2 sliced carrots
2 stalks of celery
1 sliced courgette
Half teaspoon of ginger
Half teaspoon of paprika
Half teaspoon of cumin
Half teaspoon of oregano
Half teaspoon of black pepper
Half teaspoon of turmeric
500ml chicken stock
2 tins of chopped tomatoes
Half a tin of kidney beans
The juice of 1 lemon

Of course, you can change any of these quantities to suit you personal tastes. It'll taste good whatever you do. Personally, I like to big up the spices!

How to cook
1. Brown the chicken in a large saucepan with a little sunflower oil until almost cooked through.

2. Add the chicken stock, tomatoes, salt, onion, carrots, celery, ginger, paprika, cumin, oregano, pepper and turmeric. Simmer for 10 minutes.

3. Add the courgette and kidney beans. Simmer for 20 minutes or until the carrot and courgette are tender.

4. Stir in the lemon juice, serve and trough. Goes well with naan bread :)
