  • 2 chicken breasts
  • 3 large potatoes
  • 2 carrots
  • 2 celery stalks
  • 2 onion
  • 3 cloves of garlic
  • 2 ½ cups chicken stock
  • 1 teaspoon tomato puree
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon fresh parsley
  • 1 teaspoon fresh dill
  • 2 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 2 bay leaves


  • Cut the chicken breasts into chunks, and season with salt and pepper.
  • Heat up half of the oil in a large pan, and fry the chicken pieces until no longer pink.
  • Remove from the pan and set aside.
  • In the same pan, add the rest of the oil, peel and chop the onions, and fry until soft.
  • Add the peeled and chopped garlic, and cook for a further 30 seconds.
  • Peel and chop the potatoes, carrots and celery and bay leaves.
  • Add them to the pan together with the cooked chicken.
  • Cover with the chicken stock, place the lid on and leave to cook until the vegetables are tender, and the chicken is cooked through - that can take about 10-15 minutes - add more stock or water if you like the dish with more liquid.
  • Add the tomato puree, season well with salt and pepper, and garnish with freshly chopped parsley and dill.
  • Remove from the heat and enjoy!
