How many times we come home after a long day of work wanting to eat something nice but really can’t be bother to cook because of how long it takes to get something nice prepared… is this you? I know that’s me for sure…
One day I came home after work thinking that I didn’t left anything prepared to eat so when I got home I just had to warm up… and as usual I was starving and couldn’t really be bothered to spend even an hour cooking….so I raved the fridge to see what I had and came up with this easy, QUICK and delicious recipe that is so versatile that you can actually serve it with anything!!
I love this recipe, and has become one of my staple all go to recipe even when I have people coming over for dinner. The first time I made it I prepared it with Quorn’s vegetarian chicken fillets, you know, trying to cut down on meat, and it was delicious. Now I not only prepared it vegetarian style, but also make it with real chicken and Calabrian ‘Nduja, which takes the dish to another level (not that it was down below before), but the ‘Nduja with its spicy and smoky flavour gives it another depth in flavour for sure….
So, no more talking (or writing) and let’s go with the recipe!
PRINT THE RECIPE
- 300 gr of Free range chicken meat
- 1/4 of a red pepper
- 1/4 of a green pepper
- 1/4 of a yellow or orange pepper optional
- 1/2 white onion
- 2 Cloves of garlic
- 2 Tbsp of Calabrian 'Nduja or a pinch of chilli flakes
- 1/2 glass of white wine
- Black pepper
- 1 Cup of fresh Dill
- 2 Bay leaves optional
1. In a pan add a couple of tbsp of vegetable oil and brown the chicken
2. Once the chicken is brown remove from the pan and add the peppers, onion, garlic and bay leaves if using. Leave to cook for approx 5 to 6 minutes.
3. Add the white wine and let to cook for another 3 to 4 minutes. You can also add the wine at the end as I did in the video.
4. Once the wine has cooked add the chicken back to the pan with the 'Nduja, stir adding a little bit of water to help the 'Nduja melt and to start creating the sauce.
5. Leave the mix to cook for 8 minutes on a medium heat, adding water if the sauce thickens or dried to much.
6. Once the whole has cooked add the dill and stir well. Turn off the heat and remove the pan from the heat to rest.
7. Serve with white rice, couscous, Quinoa, boiled potatoes, mash potatoes, chips or pasta.
For a vegetarian version I swap the chicken for Quorn Chicken Pieces and the 'Nduja for chilli flakes and the result is as delicious as the non vegetarian version.
