RECIPE TIPS

If you have leftovers, store the chicken in the fridge in a properly airtight container (to prevent the growth of microorganisms).

To avoid drying out the chicken, do not reheat the food in the oven, reheat it in the microwave.

If you prefer, you can add fresh parsley or thyme sprigs instead of chopped coriander.

For a thicker stew you can replace tomato pulp for tomato paste (cooking time may vary slightly).
