Ingredients

  • Tomatoes 1 kg

  • Chicken 1 kg

  • Tomato paste 2 tablespoons

  • Onion 500 g

  • Garlic 4 cloves

  • Hops suneli 1 tsp

  • Ground coriander 1 tsp

  • Saffron 1 tsp

  • Butter 1 tablespoon

  • Salt to taste

  • Vegetable oil 1 tablespoon

  • Ground red pepper to taste

  • Lemon ½ pieces

  • Potatoes ½ kg

  • Fresh red pepper 1 piece

Directions

  • Cut the chicken into small pieces (3-4 per serving), fold it into a saucepan or deep frying pan, pre-pour the vegetable oil, and put the stew under a closed lid.
  • While the chicken is stewing, finely chop and stew the tomatoes (you can rub them through a colander) with the addition of tomato paste.
  • Drain the chicken juice into a separate dish. Add butter, chopped onion, pepper, spices, garlic and fry until crusty, stirring very often.
  • Add to the chicken very hot juice, tomatoes. If there is little sauce, add hot water or broth so that the liquid covers the chicken pieces.
  • Close the lid tightly, turn down the heat (should gurgle a little). Onions, peppers, and tomatoes should practically dissolve at the end, and chicken meat should lag behind the bones. In the dish you can add separately boiled and mashed potatoes.
  • Serve, decorated with thin circles of lemon and greens.
