This is quite simple and tastes VERY good !
This will feed four quite generous portions.

Ingredients :

4 x skinless chicken breasts trimmed
several slices of Choritzo spiced sausage ( approx 2 oz )
1 x Large onion cut into small pieces
3 x Garlic cloves crushed
1 x 15oz tin of chopped tomatoes or 4 large chopped fresh tomatoes
1 x chopped green sweet pepper and 1 x choped red sweet pepper
1 x tin of campbells condensed tomatoe soup
2 x heaped teaspoons of good tomatoe paste
10 x chopped black olives
4 x chopped dried apricots
Fresh mixed herbs or some good dried mixed herbs
Long grain rice, enough for 4 portions

Fry off the chicken on a medium heat in olive oil for a couple of minutes per side and then
add the onion, peppers and garlic for a further 4 minutes until all is slightly "golden"

Take a large oven friendly dish that has a lid ( pyrex etc )
Place the contents of the fyring pan into the large dish, along with the all the other missing
ingredients except the rice !!
Add a glass of good white wine and a small cup of water also.
Cook in a medium oven ( 220 deg ) or gas mark 5 for 1 hour.
Check for the liquid content every 20 minutes and make sure that it doesn't dry out, should be
fine "as is"
With 20 minutes to go, cook your rice.

Serve with your choice of wine , I recommend a nice Pinot Grigio  !

Marty.

The skinless and olive oil are good healthful choices. For even more extreme healthy chicken read on.

I have a pretty odd treatment for the barnyard pimp (chicken). I have discovered that boiling (skinless) chicken in dark beer (stout like Guinness) doesn't result in the typical bland "boiled" meat flavorless blah, but the stout instead imparts a smoky flavor to the chicken, while a lot of the nasty fat is boiled into solution and gets poured down the drain.

I have even used a cooking technique where I steam sliced onions and bell pepper (in a colander), over the boiling chicken and later assemble them together into some flour tortillas making healthy low fat fajitas. Just add some sour cream(?) and hot salsa to taste.

HNY Martin... ;D
