A heart warming dish to help the chills on those wintery days. Chicken thighs have a lovely density to them that works so well in a casserole. Apricot nectar provides a natural sweetness and imagine the joy to all in your home when presented with a home cooked meal at the end of a long day.
6 free range or organic chicken thighs
1 large onion diced
1/4 cup organic tomato paste
1/4 cup coconut flour
1/2 cup shredded coconut
1 can apricot nectar
1 litre of stock or filtered water.
One handful of flat leaf parsley finely chopped
Sea salt and black pepper to taste
Juice of one lime or lemon.
Veggies to suit your own tastes. I used two celery stalks finely chopped, 2 large carrots diced and 2 cups of chopped green beans.
Dice the chicken and fry off in a pan with oil (olive oil or coconut oil). When golden add the flour, coconut and tomato paste. Cook for a couple of minutes then add the rest of the ingredients. You can transfer this to a crock pot and place in the oven, use a slow cooker, a pot on the stove, or a fry pan with a lid as l did. Let this simmer for several hours and then serve with your favourite salad or vegetables. It will freeze well and can be eaten for several days if kept in a sealed container in the fridge.
