Method

  1. Heat 1 tbsp oil in a sauté or deep frying pan over a medium heat. Season the chicken and add to the pan. Fry for about 4 mins until browned all over. Lift out of the pan and set aside. Heat the remaining oil in the pan and fry the onion for about 3 mins, until it is just softened, then add the garlic and cook for a further min.
  2. Add the potatoes, mustard and sundried tomato paste to the pan, and cook for 1 min. Stir in the paprika, vinegar, sherry and stock. Bring to the boil and allow the liquid to reduce for 2 mins.
  3. Return the chicken to the pan, cover and simmer for 10 mins. Stir well and simmer with the lid off for another 8 mins, or until the sauce is thickened and the potatoes and chicken cooked through. Can be frozen at this point for up to 1 month. Check the seasoning and serve in bowls with a dollop of soured cream and a sprinkling of parsley.

I used this recipe as a curry style dish and served with rice and peas. Substituted the sherry for 100ml white wine. very enjoyable, easy meal.

This was a really heart warming supper. I added double the amount of sundried tomato paste plus a heaped tablespoon of harissa paste to give it a little zing and replaced the sherry with white wine. Just before serving I emptied a 200g bag of baby spinach leaves in the pot, simmered covered for two minutes to let them wilt and then served with a mixture of long grain and wild rice - delicious!

Have been making this for years- lovely favours and freezes well. Just need to aim some green veg for complete meal

Made this as a midweek meal for my young family. Full of flavour everyone cleared their plates. Although I love one pot wonders I would recommend cooking the potatoes first and adding them in, as they seemed to take an age to cook. Would also recommend smoked paprika and a smidgen of chilli powder or flakes. will be making this one again.

This was lovely and very easy. I used 1tbsp of smoked paprika but still found it a little under seasoned. Served with broccoli and green beans. This made enough for 3 people with large appetites but given we are pigs, it may be intended as a recipe to serve 4!

This has quickly become a favourite of mine. Didn't use the sherry and used sherry vinegar instead of red wine vinegar. It was gorgeous! Took a bit longer than the time stated for the potatoes to soften, but worth the wait. Wasn't sure how necessary the sour cream was and very nearly left it off - but the cream flavour with the warm paprika was a winner!

What can i use instead of the sherry i have never heard of it and also is the sundried tomatoe paste the sameas tomatoe puree?

Very nice recipe. I tweaked it a bit by not adding the potatoes and cooking separately, and I also did not cut up my chicken thighs so cooked on the hob for about an hour. The sauce needed a bit of sugar in it, think because the sherry I used was very dry, but overall it was a lovely dish and the whole family asked for it again! I wonder if the sauce would be nice with chops as well so may try that another time.

I made this in my slow cooker and left it on for well over 6 hours, I added peas and chopped tomatoes and left out the sherry as don't drink alcohol. Half way through I had a taste test, I found it to be quite bland so ended up putting 2 tbsp of smoked paprika, 2 tsp ground pepper and 1 tsp of salt and left it to marinate for a few more hours. It had a nice smoky, tomatoey flavour, but i'm not sure I would make again though as the ingredients listed are not enough on flavour.

Love this recipe. Always cook lots of potatoes with it as everyone eats so much. I use smoked paprika which makes it soo tasty!

Delicious! I used sweet sherry, balsamic vinegar and low-fat creme fraiche as that's what I had in the house, served with steamed broccoli and cauliflower. The whole family loved it - will definitely make again.

I loved this! I added the sour cream to the sauce at the beggining though and added a splash of red wine and a squeeze of lime juice instead of the red wine vinegar x

Loved this but made with cubed chicken instead of just thigh meat. Asda don't seem to sell sundried tomato paste so used tomato puree instead.

We love this dish, it is really nice with fresh crusty bread as they soak up the juices so well.... I don't put sherry in at all. And also leave out the tomato as i have allergy to them. Instead i cut up 2-3 peppers and add them with the garlic. Works really well :))

Anyone know if this can be done in the slow cooker? Haven't got a pot big enough so slow cooker would work out well. Cheers

Whole family really enjoyed this. Don't think it would've been as nice with red wine as it was with the sherry though, but you could use Marsala wine as an alternative. If you dice the potatoes into approx 1cm cubes, then they cook perfectly. Also, used chicken breast instead of thighs. Sauce was delicious!

We tried this the other day and it was quite dissapointing. We followed the recipe with the exception of sherry (replaced by red wine) and ended up with a brown/grey gloop. We wont be trying it again.
