Ingredients

  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 300g pack cup mushrooms, halved
  • 4 chicken legs, skin removed
  • 500g jar garlic & herb passata
  • 1 chicken stock cube
  • 100g pitted black kalamata olives
  • chopped parsley, to serve (optional)
  • pasta and a salad, or mash and green veg, to serve (optional)

Method

  1. Heat the oil in a large flameproof casserole dish and stir-fry the mushrooms until they start to soften. Add the chicken legs and cook briefly on each side to colour them a little.

  2. Pour in the passata, crumble in the stock cube and stir in the olives. Season with black pepper – you shouldn’t need salt. Cover and simmer for 40 mins until the chicken is tender. Sprinkle with parsley and serve with pasta and a salad, or mash and green veg, if you like.
