Method

  1. Heat half the oil in a non-stick pan, then brown the chicken all over. Add half the chopped rosemary, stir to coat, then set aside on a plate.

  2. In the same pan, heat the rest of the oil, then gently cook the onion for about 5 mins until soft. Add the garlic, anchovies and remaining rosemary, then fry for a few mins more until fragrant. Pour in the tomatoes and capers with the wine, if using, or 75ml water if not. Bring to the boil, then return the chicken pieces to the pan. Cover, then cook for 20 mins until the chicken is cooked through. Season and serve with a crisp green salad and crusty bread.

Currently have this simmering away gently on the hob. Hope it tastes as good as it smells! Used this as inspiration but with leeks rather than onions and also added some diced celery and lentils because they needed using up. The only thing is, my sauce doesn't look as dark and rich as the picture but hopefully it will darken and enrich as it cooks. Just need to decide what to serve with it now. *Edited to update*: Pleased to say it did taste as good as it smelt, however, I cooked it for a lot longer than the 20 minutes suggested which IMO would produce chewy chicken and a thin, bland sauce. I simmered it for more like 90 minutes in total (after the addition of last minute dumplings) which made for tender, yet still moist chicken and a thick, rich sauce. I would definitely make this again with a few slight alterations.

I thought this was nice but next time I would probably put it in the slow cooker to really enrich the flavours.

It tastes gorgeous but isn't very filling, I'd serve with mash next time.

Lovely, added twice as many anchovy fillets, rosemary sprigs and garlic cloves. Also added a splodge of tomato puree and a tablespoon or so of balsamic vinegar - really added to the flavour. Served with couscous and garlic ciabatta - not very healthy but delicious!

I love this recipe - followed it to the T however added red wine vinegar rather than actual red wine. Simmered it for a little longer than advised to get a thicker sauce and served with bulgar wheat and veg in keeping with the healthy theme. Amazing - making this again tonight!

Sooooo disappointing. Smelled delicious, but when we ate it it managed to be both bland and tasteless, and yet simultaneously cloying and nausea-inducing. Won't be making this again

A beautiful and comforting meal. A very taste meal which has become a regular in our house.

Lovely tomato rich flavour! I substituted the capers for black olives and simmered the dish for slightly longer than instructed as the sauce was slightly on the thin side.

Cooked this last night and was a fantastic meal, one of my husbands fav dishes now! So will defo be cooking this again. I used chicken breasts instead just as a healthier option. At the same time as using rosemary, I also used thyme which was lovely. I had left over (already cooked) new potatoes which I added to the dish. Toward the end of cooking added a packet of cooked puy lentils. Served with brown rice. Was really scrummy! 5*****.
