For today’s ingredients you will need:
8-10 Chicken Thigh fillets
1 onion, chopped up
1-2 minced Garlic cloves
2 tbsp harissa spice
1 tbsp sweet smoked paprika powder
2 tomatoes, roughly chopped
3 heaped tbsp of Ajvar
Grab a deep, large soup saucepan. Add some oil and heat over medium to high heat.
Add your onion and saute until softened. This can take anywhere from 1-3 minutes.
Turn heat to low and add garlic, all of your spices: harrisa spice- paprika- salt - pepper
Stir it all to combine spices and onion together.
Then add the chicken thigh fillets and stir to coat the chicken in the spice mix.
Cook on medium heat for 5 minutes, turning the chicken filets over every so often until
the chicken is just whitened on the outside.
Now add the liquids; passata and water, stir in the chopped tomatoes and bring to a boil.
Bring the temperature back down to a soft boil, cover the pot and leave it to lightly simmer at this pace for 20-30 minutes.
Remove the lid, and Stir in the Ajvar.
Simmer, uncovered for another 30-40 minutes on low, to allow the sauce to thicken.
Once chicken is easily falling apart, remove from heat and serve with a side of choice.
