This delightful dish has a tomato sauce which is injected with red wine. The sauce I made for chicken but you could use pork. Perfect winter warmer.


  • 8 Boneless chicken thighes
  • 2 cans of chopped tomatos
  • 1/4 bottle red wine
  • 2 chicken stock cube
  • 8 shallots
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • large splash of olive oil.


  • STEP 1
    First dice up the garlic and shallots very finely. Then add to a pan of very hot oil. Allow to go golden brown and then turn heat down.
  • STEP 2
    Add the meat of your choice to the pan and raise heat slightly to begin the cooking. Do not let it sear or burn, just cook calmly.
  • STEP 3
    Pour out the wine and allow to breathe. Open the tomatoes from their cans and put into a bowl. Pour the wine over the chicken and stir vigorously. Add the tomatoes and keep stirring.
  • STEP 4
    Add the stock cube. Cook on a medium heat on the hob for about 40 minutes. Check the sauce regularly to see it does not burn onto the pans bottom.
  • STEP 5
    Serve with nice long grain rice, fresh salad and baby corn or carrots.
