Cooking is fun!
My Chicken Stew, from leftovers. Story: So the Easter passed, and I had some chicken legs that were still delicious, but then again ,I started to crave for some chicken stew. And then it hit me! Why not use the leftovers in order to cook? Seemed a really cheap and delicious idea for ‘recycling’ my food.
I started by chopping off the onions and the capsicum. Then I poured some olive oil in a frying pan and added the chopped ingredients.
Ingredients: -2 onions -1 capsicum (bell pepper) -home made tomato sauce -5 chicken legs(already coocked ) -some garlic -spices -olive oil -a bunch of parsley -a glass of water Time: 1 hour .
First, I added the onions, and only after it became translucent, I added the capsicum. Although I usually use some home made tomato sauce, I also like to add 2-3 cherry tomatoes for an extra taste.
TIP! Make sure the onions do not get brown or your stew might get a bitter taste, in the end!
HOME MADE TOMATO SAUCE
I added the tomato sauce, and mixed , until it blended. After a couple of minutes, I added the leftovers (chicken legs). I c0mpleted with water so the chicken may be covered in sauce. I added salt and pepper. It boiled for almost 20 min .
Add minced cloves of garlic! I am a garlic fan so I use as much as I can, but you can use less. Just taste and see!
Tip! Make sure you add spices before you add garlic because the smell and taste of garlic is so powerful that it may trick your senses!
Because the chicken is already cooked, you don’t have to check it periodically. Now it’s time to add spices.
I do not add flour for obtaining consistency because it’s not that healthy. Instead ,I let it boil a couple of extra minutes. Finally, I added the parsley, after I turned off the stove.
My stew is ready and looks like this.
And this is how it looks on a plate.
Bon Appetit !
