I've been looking for a way to use my holiday souvenir since I got home and this recipe really ticked my fancy. It's really easy to make and if you serve it with vegetables it makes a pretty healthy midweek dinner option.
10ml sunflower oil
1 red onion peeled and sliced
10g fresh sage
50ml red wine
340ml beef stock
17g gravy granules
pinch of salt & pepper
4 small chicken breasts
20ml olive oil
First off pre heat your oven to 180c/gas mark 4.
Heat the oil and saute half of the onions with the sage until the onions are golden brown.
Add the wine and simmer until reduced by half, then add the stock and simmer for a further 10 minutes.
Thicken with gravy granules and simmer for a further 5 minutes. Season to taste. In a separate pan, heat the olive oil and seal the chicken breasts. Turn until evenly cooked and set to one side.
Add the rest of the onions and smoked paprika to the pan used to seal the chicken and saute until soft.
Place the chicken on a lightly oiled oven dish, then top with onion.
Pour the gravy mix around the chicken and bake for 25 minutes.
I served my partners with some homemade chips lightly coated in oil and seasoned to make it a little more filling for him. Have you got any recipes to share where I can use more of my lovely paprika?
