Spanish style chicken : Wk22/5

Serves 4 : Very easy : Quick
450gm skinless chicken breast, cut in chunks
3 tsp paprika

1 large onion, sliced
1 clove garlic, crushed
1 x 410gm tin chopped tomatoes
140gm sweet pepper dews, sliced
12 pitless black olives, sliced
±16 large spinach leaves and stalks, chopped

Spray a large pan with non-stick cooking spray.
Fry the onion and garlic until the onion starts to soften.
Add the chicken and paprika and stir fry until sealed.

Tip in the tomatoes and simmer for 15 minutes.

Add the pepper dews and olives and stir well.
Put the chopped spinach on top, cover with a lid and simmer another 5 minutes.

Remove the lid.
Turn everything gently to incorporate the spinach.

Serve with warm crusty bread.

I found crushed pepper dews at the deli counter of my local Pick and Pay, sold loose. They combine really well with the paprika to give a mildly spicy sweet flavour to this dish. You can also buy whole pepper dews in a bottle and shred them yourself.
