Method

  1. Fry the onion and garlic in the oil in a deep, wide frying pan until soft. Add the chipotle paste (use 1 tbsp for a mild flavour and 2 tbsp for a hotter, stronger one). Stir and cook for 1 min, then add the tomatoes and cider vinegar. Bring to a simmer and cook for 10 mins with the lid half on. Stir to make sure it doesn’t get too dry.
  2. Add the chicken and cook for 10 mins or until cooked through, turning once. Scatter with coriander and serve with rice and soured cream.

So simple but so tasty! I used chicken breasts cut into strips and substituted white wine vinegar for cider vinegar. I used 2 spoons of chipotle paste so it had just the right amount of a kick for me. Definitely plan to make again.

I thought this dish was a bit tasteless perhaps because I used chicken breast as I don't like thigh fillets, however all plates were cleared and everyone, including my very fussy children, said they enjoyed it and would eat it again so looks like it will be a keeper!

Have made this few times now. It's quick, easy and tasty. Perfect for mid-week meal. Probably not enough to feed four but think we could just be greedy (and do have two teenage boys).

Delicious, easy midweek dinner. Will definitely make again and try adding red pepper as suggested.

Really enjoyed this and so simple to make. I had coriander but forgot to add it, but don't think it mattered! Agreee that a red pepper would be a good addition - I served with wilted spinach which went really well with the smokey flavour and the sour cream. It is also a cheap meal and freezes well too so will definitely make again.

We made this tonight and it was very nice. I added red pepper as suggested. My husband said it needed more sauce, but I thought it was fine.

DH loved it but I was hoping for more of a smokey, well-rounded flavour - I only tasted heat (don't mind heat but wanted some savoury influence too). Any ideas?

I might substitute half of the chipotle powder/tomato paste (all I had on hand) for Spanish smoked paprika next time. A dash of soy sauce and sugar didn't do much to deepen/round out the flavours. Added a red pepper which was nice.

I too ran out of cider vinegar so used white wine vinegar which seemed to be fine. Very quick and tasty. I will add peppers though next time as Nimmy suggested, as I think it will work well

I followed Nimmy's suggestion and cooked in the oven. I also added some sweetcorn.

This was such a quick and easy recipe! Instead of waiting for the sauce to simmer down, I put the chicken in and popped it in the oven! Next time I think I'll add a pepper to the sauce.

Tasty and really quick and easy. Forgot that I'd run out of cider vinegar but white wine vinegar worked well too.

This was gorgeous -- I was wary of using a paste but it gave a very authentic flavour.
