Chicken & Chorizo Stew

I really wish I could post smells over the internet, If you follow me over on twitter or instagram you'll have seen last night that I was raving about my dinner. I actually went to bed smiling at how delicious it was!

I was so excited as it had smelt yummy in the slow cooker all day and was really easy to make.

Ingredients - for 2 large portions

Fry light
2 chicken breast - whole
125g chorizo - sliced
1 red onion - finely chopped
2 peppers - chopped
1/2 courgette - sliced
2 garlic cloves
400g passatta ( you could use chopped tomatoes if you prefer)
100ml vegetable stock (or chicken)
ground black pepper


1) Brown the chicken breast for 2-3 minutes, remove from the pan and fry the chorizo for about 3 minutes. Set aside
2) Soften the onion & add the pepper, courgette & garlic and cook for 3-4 minutes. Add the passatta and the stock and bring to the boil.
3) Add all the ingredients to the slow cooker and cook on low for about 6 hours.

I served with rice, but to be honest you could have eaten it on it's own it was so filling.
Weight Watchers points it worked out at 9 propoints for the stew and I had 4 propoints of brown rice. So delicious.

The boy said it was the best thing I'd ever cooked (winning) and it will definatley be on the menu again.

If you give it a go, please let me know how you like it:)
