  This spicy chicken recipe with sweet peppers, ripe tomatoes and fresh aromatic herbs is a delicious take on a hearty Calabrian classic. Serve with a green salad and rosemary potatoes.
  1. Heat 2 tbsp olive oil in a large frying pan over a medium heat. Add the chicken thighs and cook skin side down for 5 minutes until golden brown. Turn the chicken over and cook for a further 5 minutes.
  2. Remove from the pan and set aside. Add the remaining olive oil, together with the shallots and cook over a low heat for 2-3 minutes.
  3. Stir in the peppers and cook for 5 minutes until the peppers begin to soften. Add the chilli, plum tomatoes, browned chicken, chicken stock and herbs. Season with salt and black pepper and bring to a simmer.
  4. Cover and cook for 20 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through and serve.
