In winter it is nice to have a meal that is warm, cosy and fills your belly. This is a great recipe that is even better the day after.
Chicken Cacciatore with Zoodles
- 1 tablespoon coconut oil
- 1/2 leek – finely sliced
- 1 clove garlic – crushed
- 1 large chicken breast – cut into cubes
- 100ml white wine
- 2 large tomatoes – finely diced
- 1/2 red capsicum
- 6 button mushrooms
- 1/2 cup chicken bone broth (or stock)
- 1/2 teaspoon dried rosemary
- 1/4 cup pitted olives
- 1 tablespoon parsley – finely chopped
- 1 teaspoon sea salt
- 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
- 2 large zucchini
Heat coconut oil in a frypan until melted. Add leeks and cook 1-2 minutes until tender.
Add diced chicken and garlic and lightly brown chicken all over.
Add wine to pan and cook until evaporated a little, about 1-2 minutes.
Add tomatoes, capsicum, mushrooms, broth, rosemary, parsley and olives. Cover, reduce heat and simmer for 10 minutes or until chicken is cooked through.
Remove lid and simmer for a further 5 minutes to reduce sauce a little. Finish with apple cider vinegar and season to taste.
Using a spiralizer or a vegetable peeler make zucchini into noodles. Place in two microwave safe bowls and cook each one on high for 2 1/2 minutes. Season to taste.
Top with chicken mixture and enjoy…
