  • 1 kg chicken drumsticks and thighs
  • 3 mixed bell peppers
  • 1/2 onion chopped
  • 3-4 tbsp tomato puree
  • 1/4 tsp garlic seasoning
  • 1/4 tsp onion seasoning
  • A pinch of oregano
  • 1/8-1/4 tsp paprika
  • Salt to taste
  • Vegetable/Sunflower Oil


  • Grab a medium sized bowl and add the chicken pieces. Season the chicken pieces with, salt to taste, ¼ tsp of onion powder, ¼ tsp of garlic powder, paprika to taste and a splash of vegetable or sunflower oil. Rub the ingredients into the chicken and leave to marinate in the fridge for at least 30 minutes.
  • In the meantime, chop 3 mixed bell peppers, ½ an onion and ½ a tomato. Set aside for later.
  • Once the chicken has finished marinating heat a splash of oil in the pan. Then, add the chicken pieces and cook on each side for 7-10 minutes or until brown.
  • Remove the chicken pieces from the pan and drain out excess oil if necessary. Make sure you leave the chicken juices in the pan because it will add more flavour to the dish!
  • Add onions to the pan and cook for a few minutes. Then, add 3-4 tbsp of tomato puree, stir and cook for 1 minute. Pour in 1 cup of water or chicken stock. Season the mixture with salt to taste, pepper to taste, a pinch of oregano and bring to a boil.
  • Then, add the chicken pieces, mixed peppers, and tomatoes the pan. Cook on a low/ medium heat for another 15 minutes or until the chicken is done and serve.
