  • Category: Main


  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 medium white onion, chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 500 g / 1lb chicken meat, diced (breast, tenderloin or thighs)
  • 1 large white potato, peeled and diced into cubes (sweet potato or zucchini can be used instead, see notes above)
  • 1 medium carrot, diced
  • 4 cloves of garlic, finely chopped
  • 8 sun-dried tomatoes, chopped (about 1/3 to ½ cup chopped)
  • 2 tablespoons of raisins
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon powder
  • 2 teaspoons cumin powder
  • 2 teaspoons paprika powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon chilli powder or cayenne pepper
  • 1 x 400 g tin of tomato puree (chopped tomatoes or tomato passata)
  • 400 ml of chicken stock (about 1 ½ to 2 cups, I just used the tomato tin to measure)
  • 1 cup of defrosted spinach, roughly chopped (squeeze some of the liquid out first)
  • Garnish: Handful of fresh coriander/cilantro


  1. In a heavy medium saucepan, heat the olive oil and add the onions and salt. Sauté, over medium heat, for 3-4 minutes, until slightly soft.
  2. Add the rest of the ingredients except for the tomatoes, chicken stock and spinach. Stir over medium-high heat for 30 seconds to allow the spices to release their aromas.
  3. Add the rest of the ingredients and stir through. Cover with a lid and bring to a boil, then reduce the heat to low-medium and cook for 25 minutes. Remove the lid and cook for a further 5 minutes over slightly higher heat. Make sure to stir a few times during the cooking process.
  4. I like to let the cooked stew sit off the heat for 5 minutes to set and to cool down slightly. Serve garnished with fresh coriander. Cauliflower rice makes for a lovely side dish.
