This recipe is an extremely simple one that came into existence one ordinary weekend when my mom decided to do some cooking – something that didn’t happen very often – which thinking back means it was actually a pretty extraordinary weekend.

Needless to say, we were so impressed with this dish she came up with, that it became a staple for rainy day dinners and lazy Sunday lunches.

I like to dish up the meal in a serving casserole. Put the chicken to one side and the veggies on the other side using a slotted spoon.

Of course, if you prefer – you can add double the water to turn it into more of a stew or soup.

Tips and Tricks:
1. If the sauce is too runny – remove the chicken and vegetable and let it simmer for a few minutes longer in order to reduce and thicken.
2. You can also add a knob of cold butter from the fridge to help thicken the sauce once you’ve removed it from the stove.
