Step 1: 1) Cut up all the vegetables into chunks (not too small)
Step 2: 2) Cut chicken into small strips
Step 3: 3) Boil around 1.4L water in kettle. Once boiled, crush 2 chicken stock cubes into hot water and stir.
Step 4: 4) Heat oil in large pan. Add onion (and garlic if desired) for a few minutes
Step 5: 5) Pour in all the stock (it may seem like a lot of water but this will all disappear! Add thyme and rosemary if desired)
Step 6: 6) Add chicken and bring to boil
Step 7: 7) Add all remaining vegetables and simmer for 40-45 minutes
Step 8: 8) Keep an eye on the pan. Stir every now and again. All the water will eventually go so keep adding some hot water from the kettle.
Step 9: 9) After 40-45 minutes, check chicken is properly cooked (it should have browned) then serve.
Step 10: Volia! Depending on how much chicken you use, you can put any extra potions in a container in the fridge. Should serve 2-3 portions.
