Serves 2 Prep: 10 min Cook: 30 min

Ingredients

Chicken thighs on the bone (with skin) 4
Flour as required
Onion 1/2
Garlic 1 clove
Red pepper 1
Tinned tomatoes (or 3 fresh) 1 (227g)
Mushrooms 3
Celery 1
Capers 3 tbsp
Olive oil 5 tbsp
Chicken stock 300ml
White wine 200ml
Salt & pepper as required
Dried oregano 1 tsp

Method

1
Season the chicken with salt & pepper and keep aside for 10 minutes before dredging with flour. (I used 2 chicken thighs and 2 wings this time).
2
Put the oil in a frying pan and fry the chicken on medium heat for 3 minutes on each side. Remove to a plate.
3
In the same pan, add the finely chopped onion, garlic and red pepper,sliced mushrooms and celery and season with salt & pepper.
4
When the vegetables are softened, add the wine and stock and bring to the boil, then simmer for 2 minutes. Add the tomatoes, oregano and capers.
5
Return the chicken to the pan and put the lid on. Simmer on medium heat for 20 minutes, turning the chicken occasionally.
6
When the sauce is reduced to about half, it's almost ready. Season to taste with tomato puree, salt & pepper.
7
Serve with baguette or your favourite bread. It also goes well with cooked rice.

Tips & Note

This is basically food eaten by hunters in the mountains, so add any ingredients you have, the only essentials are oregano and capers.
