Recipe: Simple spicy chicken and sweetcorn stew

Simple spicy chicken and sweetcorn stew

Haven't been up to much on the blog of late as have been suffering from girlflu (significantly worse than manflu!) and not feeling particularly inspired. Back in action now though and made this simple spicy chicken and sweetcorn stew last night to blow the final stages of the cold away. This is a really simple recipe which is perfect for a quick midweek dinner.

And, of course, it was as cheap as chips thanks to some cut-price chicken breast chunks I'd found reduced from £4.54 to £1.39 - reductions like that get sent straight into my freezer for a rainy day!

Here's how to make it:

1) Chop an onion and soften gently in a large pan with a glug of oil.
2) Add a few finely chopped or crushed cloves of garlic.
3) Add the chicken breast chunks and brown for a minute or two.
4) Add a teaspoon of chilli powder, a teaspoon of ground coriander, and a few tablespoons of tomato puree and cook for another minute or so.
5) Add a tin of chopped tomatoes and simmer for 10-15 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through.
6) Throw in some frozen sweetcorn (tinned would be fine too) and simmer for another couple of minutes.
7) Done!

I served this with rice and my obligatory sprinkling of fresh coriander leaves (I'm a little obsessed with fresh coriander!). Would make a good jacket potato filling or could be good served with crusty bread too.

The stew served four and cost around £2 in total. Simple, speedy and cheap - just how I like it!
