- 500g, skinless, boneless chicken thighs, chopped into 4 pieces
- 1 tbsp smoked paprika
- 1/2 tsp salt & black pepper
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- 2 cloves garlic, crushed
- 1 medium onion, finely sliced

- 2 cups carrots, sliced
- 2 tbsp flour
- 1 1/3 cups chicken stock
- 1/2 cup white wine

Take the smoked paprika, salt & pepper and mix together in a zip lock bag. Mix the chicken with the spiced set aside.
Heat the oil in a large pan – add the chicken and cook until brown. Put aside.
Next cook the onion, and garlic in the pan. Add the mushrooms and cook for about 2 minutes. Add the potatoes and carrots. Mix well and cook for about 5 minutes.
Whisk the flour with the wine, and pour into the pan with the vegetables. Bring to the boil, stirring as you go. Add the chicken stock and stir again. Next add the chicken back to the pan and bring to the boil.
Cover the pan and simmer gently on a low heat for roughly 30 minutes.
Taste and adjust with more salt & pepper – serve on rice, quinoa or couscous.
And that is as easy as it gets – this is a delicious tasty one-pot meal that the whole family will enjoy!
