Ingredients for 4-6 people :
– 1 chicken
– 1 kg of tomatoes
– 700 g of peppers (green, red, yellow – the more color the more joyful)
– 3 minced onions
– 3 garlics
– 1 glass of white wine
– 1 bouquet garni (or some thyme), olive oil, olives, pepper and salt
In a cocotte or in a large pot, brown the peppers cut into julienne (or stripes), and the minced onions with the garlic. Then add the tomatoes and the bouquet garni or the thyme.
Meanwhile, season the chicken with salt and pepper and then brown it, and then…
… put the chicken with the vegetables. Put the olives and cook for 10 minutes. When the liquid is reduced, pour in the wine. Cover the pot and cook for the rest of the hour.
Ta-da! You may add chili. The Basques usually stir in piment de cayenne but I did not have any in the kitchen. Note to self : complete the pantry.
You can then eat the chicken with rice. When I improve my cooking skills, I may be able to cook riz pilaf.
