This week has been pretty cold. I don’t know about you, but personally when it’s like that I need to feed my soul with good, comforting food.
I have the perfect comfort food: my mediterranean chicken, to share with you.
4 chicken thighs with the skin
100 g of chorizo sliced
100 g of black olives
300 g of green beans sliced, either fresh or frozen
One TBSP of tomatoe puree
1 onion, sliced finely
4 cloves of garlic, crushed
1 TBSP of olive oil
1 tsp of oregano
In a non stick pan with one TBSP of olive oil, start frying your chicken, the skin side first then turn them around until nice and brown. Chicken thighs tend to release quite a bit of fat, so once your pieces of chicken are brown, take them out of the pan and then get rid of the excess fat. Put the pan back on the stove. Then, add your onion, let them cook 2 to 3 minutes until soft. Then add your chorizo slices, fry them for a minute. Add garlic and stir for 40 to 50 seconds, add your chicken thighs, beans, tomatoe puree, olives and a tsp of oregano, give everything a good stir. Pour some boiling water to cover the chicken, turn the heat down, and let all this cook for 30 to 40 minutes until your chicken is completely cooked and your sauce has thickened. Add some parsley before serving.
Serving suggestion: with mash potatoes or rice
