  • 2 large chicken breasts or 6 boneless, skinless thighs, cut into bite-sized pieces
  • large pinch of ground cinnamon
  • 1 red chilli, deseeded and chopped
  • 2 tbsp sherry vinegar
  • 1 tbsp clear honey

Method

  1. Add the saffron to the hot stock to soak. Heat the oil in a medium pan and cook the onion until it is soft and just beginning to turn golden. Push to the side of the pan and add the chicken. Cook for a few mins until the chicken is browned all over.

  2. Add the cinnamon and chilli, and cook for a couple of mins. Add the stock, vinegar, honey, tomatoes and raisins. Bring to the boil, turn down the heat and simmer for 10 mins until the sauce is reduced and the chicken is cooked through. When ready to serve, scatter with the coriander and nuts, and serve with bread on the side.

Excellent fairly easy recipe that's a mouth explosion! If it comes out too watery just keep it simmering for longer until it reduces.

I made this recipe for a tapas party I was hosting and it was really quick and easy - I added even more raisins and almonds for the added texture. Still delicious warm if eaten half an hour later!

This dish was a bit of an adventure as I'd not made something quite like this before. I found that overall it was a bit sweet, but that might be because I used this recipe to serve two as a main, so maybe it's best in small doses! Lovely flavour though.

I served as a main with rice and broccoli (can't live without broccoli...). Absolutely delicious and perfect for four.

This was absolutely delicious and I will definitely make it again. It is a small portion (as it says it's tapas or to be part of a buffet) so next time I will make this amount for 2-3 people and add extra tomatoes as it is pretty meat heavy as it stands.

Absolutely delicious, and works really well as part of a spread. I missed out the saffron, which I don't like, and was still a very tasty, flavoursome dish.
