Food: Chicken a la Laura


When I went on holiday last week everyone was having roasted duck and nibbles for tea, but I decided I wanted to stay Filling and Healthy so picked up a few things to make something for my dinner; this was the result, and it was amazing. I enjoyed it so much I decided to make it again and share my recipe with you.

What it is exactly I don't know, hence the chicken a la Laura name. It could be eaten like soup, used in enchiladas etc. It's just so damn tasty.


Fry off the onions in some oil until they become pale, then sprinkle over your spices.


Add the chopped tomatoes and bring to the boil. Then put in a blender and blend till smooth.

Here is where you can add to your sauce and make it your own with spices and sauces etc.

Add your vegetables and chicken, then bring to the boil, reduce the heat and put a lid on it. Cook for around 20-30 mins depending on the size of your chicken breasts.

Once the chicken is cooked it's time to shred. Then return to the pan along with the can of mixed beans.IMG_3547[1]

Cook for another 5 mins and serve. Enjoy.

This recipe really is so versatile, you can use whatever you want. For my main recipe I've just put cumin and chilli powder down as that's what I used on holiday (I couldn't afford to re-buy loads of spices) but here is what I used in this one.
