  • 12 Chicken thighs
  • 4 lb off Potatoes
  • 1 Lombard Cabbage,
  • 3 Large Carrots
  • 1 Red Bell Pepper
  • 1 Yellow Bell Pepper
  • 1 Green Bell Pepper
  • 2 cups of Mushrooms
  • 1 table spoon of minced red chillies

  1. First of all, cut all your vegetables in bite size pieces. Not too small so they won’t break apart while stewing

  2. Heat the olive oil in the pot, season the chicken thighs with salt and pepper and place them inside, skin down first. You will know the oil is hot enough if it sizzles. Cook until golden brown and cook for five more minutes on the other side

  4. When finished, add the butter to the pot, the diced red onion, garlic, minced red chillies and grated ginger. Stir for two minutes and add the rest of the ingredients, except the chicken stock

  5. Turn all of the vegetables and chicken thighs back to the pot, add a pinch of salt, and the stock let it simmer for about 30 min with the lid on

  6. Add chopped cilantro when done and be amazed with the richness of the colours, flavours and aromasThis will become your favorite meal for any occasion! Enjoy

Yummm this chicken stew looks good. Definitely a good recipe to make in the cold winter months. I will absolutely keep this for then. It is summer here in South Africa and not really the weather to eat something heavy but we do have our cold days. I like making meals like this in the colder months.
