This recipe is one that came to me via my Mum. It’s the one thing I love to cook when I feel like going home, or being around my family (BIG on family) when they are not there, I can cook this and it smells, tastes, feels like being home. It’s a dish I always have post tours, especially in winter. The measurements are all approximate ‘cos it’s a ‘feel’ thing!
1–2 tablespoons very good quality olive oil
2 chicken breasts, cut into 2 cm pieces
A couple of chicken wings – to make it fly!
140g tomato paste – or fresh tomatoes, roughly chopped
2 cloves of garlic, crushed
1–2 brown onions, peeled and chopped any way you like
Fresh sprigs of rosemary, thyme and parsley
350 ml of white wine (that’s about half a bottle, if you need more liquid add chicken stock if handy)
1 cup mushrooms, sauteed – optional
