This is one of my new favourite meals. I made it a few weeks ago when my in-laws came for dinner, and I made it when I had the house full of my family staying for Indigo’s baptism in May.
It has to be one of the easiest meals to make with the most impressive results. It’s cheap and a nice way to get more bone birth into your meals without really trying.
- 1kg chicken thigh fillets
- 2 brown onions
- 1 tablespoon ghee
- 1 cup chicken broth
- 1 tablespoon paprika
- 2 tablespoons sour cream
- 1. Melt the ghee in a heavy-based saucepan
- 2. Slice the onions and add them to the ghee. Cook over a low-moderate heat until they turn clear - you will need to stir fairly often to stop them from catching.
- 3. Push the onions to the outside of the pan and add the chicken pieces.
- 4. Brown the chicken on both sides. Don't worry about cooking it all the way through, just get some good colour on it.
- 5. Lift the chicken out of the pan and spread the onions over the base of the pan. Place the chicken on top.
- 6. Sprinkle the seasonings over, then add the chicken broth or stock.
- 7. Place the lid on the pot and leave it to simmer until the chicken is cooked all the way through. This should take around 30-40 minutes.
- 8. Remove the chicken and place in a warm serving dish
- 9. Stir sour cream into the remaining sauce. Pour the sauce and onions over the chicken in the serving dish. Serve with mashed potatoes and green beans.
- This dish can be made in a slow cooker. Just transfer the onions and chicken to a slow cooker after browning and cook for 4 hours on high or 8 hours on low (or however long your machine takes).
