One pot chicken


The title doesn’t really do justice to this yummy meal. It’s one of those dishes that get better each mouthful and you go back to the ingredients to try and work out exactly how the flavour was achieved! Another meal that’s great for cold winter evenings.

2 tsp ground cumin

1 tsp hot chilli paste ( or more if you like it spicy!)

1 tbspn oil

4 tbspns tomato paste

2 cloves garlic crushed


freshly ground pepper

8 small pieces of chicken on the bone, skinned

4 medium carrots peeled and sliced

6 potatoes chopped roughly ( it’s a rustic dinner!)

1 cup shelled peas
