Mexican Chicken and Potato Pot

This my new favourite thing to eat, I made it for the first time about 2 months ago and have had it  at least 10 times since! This recipe for a Mexican Chicken and Potato Pot was pulled out of a Chicken Made Simple recipe book then edited to suit what I had available. It came out amazingly so I never reverted back to the original. Here is my recipe;

Ingredients

  • 400g of Diced Chicken Breast

Method

  1. Heat the oil in a large pan
  2. Add the chicken and cook until lightly browned
  3. Reduce the heat and add the onion, pepper, carrots and potato
  4. Then cover the pan and leave to cook for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally so the vegetables soften
  5. Then add the garlic, chili, coriander, oregano and pepper and cook for 1 minutes
  6. Then pour in the tinned tomatoes and chicken stock and bring to the boil
  7. Once boiling put the lid on and turn back down to a medium heat and cook for 25 minutes

I think that this recipe for a Mexican Chicken and Potato Pot has become one of my favourites as not only is it it delicious, with some of my favourite flavours but it is also warm and comforting on these freezing cold Berlin evenings! It is also low in calories and makes 4 large portions, we tend to save half for the next evening and reheat again, it does this perfectly!
