Method

Step 1

Preparation: Prepare all ingredients as indicated above.

Step 2

Chicken: Place a pan on medium-high heat with a knob of butter. Season the chicken with salt and pepper, then add to the pan once the butter has melted. Brown for 2-3 minutes until golden (but not cooked through yet), then remove from the pan and set aside.

Step 3

Smoked tomato sauce: Using the same pan on medium-high heat, add a drizzle of olive oil. When hot, add the onion with a pinch of salt and sauté for 5 minutes. Then add the tomato paste, garlic, smoked paprika, cumin and coriander seeds. Cook for 30 seconds before adding the tomatoes (with the liquid) and water (1 cup for 4; ½ cup for 2). Simmer (gently boil) for 10 minutes until the sauce thickens. Add the chicken back into the pan, let it simmer for another 3 minutes, then add the green beans and courgettes. Cook for another 2-3 minutes until all the veggies and chicken are cooked though, then mix through HALF the coriander.

Step 4

Serve in a bowl and sprinkle over the REST of the coriander.
