Spanish chicken stew recipe

Ingredients

  • 1 Knorr Chicken Stock Pot
  • 3 chicken legs or 4 chicken thighs
  • 1 red pepper, deseeded and finely diced
  • 4 cloves of garlic, peeled and chopped
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 medium onion, peeled and finely diced
  • 1/2 tsp smoked paprika
  • 4 medium tomatoes, finely diced
  • 1 tbsp tomato paste
  • Can of chickpeas
  • 300g basmati rice
  • A handful of fresh parsley

Cooking Method

Add a Knorr Chicken Stock Pot to 800ml of boiling water in a measuring jug and stir vigorously.

Put the stock into a large pan and bring to the boil. You could also use a slow cooker if you prefer? Then add the chicken, cover the pan and simmer for 30 minutes.

About halfway through the chicken’s cooking time heat the oil in a large saucepan. Then add the tomatoes, onion, pepper and garlic and cook gently on low heat.

Once the onions and tomatoes are gently cooked, add paprika and tomato paste. You will then need to drain and add the chickpeas.

Easy Spanish stew recipe

Add around 300ml of the broth to the stew, then cook over medium to low heat until it has reduced down.

Meanwhile, return the pan of broth to the heat, add the rice and cook until tender, topping up with hot water so it’s about double the amount of water to rice.

Shred the chicken off the bones using 2 forks, then add chicken and parsley leaves to the stew. Serve with the rice and crusty bread.
