  • 1 lb chicken pieces (500g)
  • 1 yellow onion (diced)
  • 2 cups zucchini (350g)(cut into rounds)
  • 2 cups baby potatoes (sliced in half)
  • 2 cups carrots (peeled and sliced into rounds)
  • 2 cups white button mushrooms (250g) (sliced half)
  • 2 cups hot water

Herbs and Spices:

  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1 teaspoon ground coriander
  • 1 tablespoon salt (use 2 teaspoon if you're using fine table salt)
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper


  • Heat up a large pot and sear the chicken, skin side down. It needs to get a GOOD sear, so don't be scared to let it sit for a while.
  • Now, add all the rest of the ingredients and bring to a boil.
  • Lower the heat so it doesn't boil too vigorously.
  • Put a lid on the pot and let it boil for 30 minutes.
  • When done, I like to separate the vegetables, chicken and sauce.
  • Garnish with freshly chopped parsley and serve immediately.


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.
