We all need something to warm us up a bit, especially on a Sunday, so why not try this Moroccan style chicken stew…

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 40 minutes



  • 2 onions
  • 3-4 cloves garlic garlic
  • Carrot chopped
  • Butternut squash cut into chunky cubes
  • Any other veg
  • Tin of tomatoes
  • Half a pint of organic chicken stock
  • Tin of tomato purée
  • 2 tsp cumin
  • 1 small tsp of chilli powder
  • Half tsp ground turmeric
  • 1 tsp ground coriander
  • Chicken breasts
  • Coriander and almonds for garnish
  • (Yoghurt and feta optional)



  • Sautée the onions, garlic and carrot in a pan with salt and pepper and olive oil until softened (don’t cook them too quickly)
  • Add the chicken and cook for a few minutes
  • Add cubes of the squash (and any other veg you fancy) and cook for a few more minutes
  • Add the tin of tomatoes, half a pint of organic chicken stock, a tin of tom purée, 2 tsp cumin, 1 tsp of chilli powder, half tsp ground turmeric, 1 tsp ground coriander, let all those ingredients boil/simmer on a medium to low heat until the veg has softened, the spices have cooked out and the sauce has thickened
  • Add more seasoning, a dash of garlic granules if you have them. You might want to add more of the spices etc as you go along so keep tasting.

For a treat…just before serving melt a chunk of the feta in the stew and save some for sprinkling on top after. Serve with a bit of coriander and almonds. You could add some organic yoghurt if you’re not being good .

For a vegetarian option try this with chickpeas and sweet potatoes.
