Ingredients/ Συστατικά
  • 700 gr. / 25 oz. chicken breasts fillet
  • 4 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 onion cut in rings
  • 1 garlic clove, chopped
  • 1 green bell pepper cut in strips
  • 1 can mushrooms (you can use fresh approximately 350 gr.), either chopped or whole
  • ¼ cup dry white wine
  • 1 ¼ cups water
  • Small bunch of parsley chopped
  • ¼ cup dried basil
  • ¼ cup dried oregano
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 3 tbsp corn flour dissolved in 3 tbsp water
  • ⅛ cup lemon juice (or the juice of half a lemon)
Instructions/ Εκτέλεση
  1. Cut the chicken in pieces (you can leave the fillets as they are, it does not matter).
  2. In a pot put the olive oil and heat at medium-high heat.
  3. Add the onion rings, garlic and peppers and sauté for 5 minutes.
  4. Add the chicken pieces and sauté for another 5 minutes.
  5. Pour the wine and let evaporate until it stays half.
  6. Add the water and all the herbs except the parsley, plus salt and pepper and simmer for ½ an hour.
  7. Add the lemon juice and parsley and continue to simmer for another half hour.
  8. The sauce is going to be runny, so just add the dissolved corn flour and let it thicken.
  9. You can serve with rice, orzo or in my case with basmati.
  10. I love the taste and aroma of basmati.
