 Ingredients List

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 4 chicken thighs (bone in and skin on)
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 2 bell peppers (any colour), diced
  • 8 ounces mushrooms, sliced
  • 4 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon thyme, chopped
  • 1/2 cup chicken broth
  • 1/2 teaspoon red chili pepper flakes (optional)
  • 1 (28 ounce) can diced tomatoes (or marinara sauce)
  • 2 teaspoons italian seasoning (or oregano)
  • 1/4 cup olives, pitted and coarsely chopped (optional)
  • salt and pepper to taste


Heat the oil in a large pan over medium-high heat, add the chicken (seasoned with salt and pepper) and brown, about 3-5 minutes per side, before setting aside.
Add onion, peppers and mushrooms and cook until tender, about 5-7 minutes.
Add the garlic, thyme and red pepper flakes and cooking until fragrant, about a minute.
Add the broth and deglaze the pan by scraping the brown bits off the bottom with a wooden spoon while the broth sizzles.
Add the tomatoes, herbs, chicken and olives, bring to a boil, reduce the heat and simmer for 15-60 minutes, before seasoning with salt and pepper and enjoying over pasta or rice! (Cook longer if you have the time to bring out more flavour!)
