I’ve been literally running in and out of the house today…Agastya’s going to start school full term after Easter and therefore all the meetings had to be attended to. Rengoni started her’s last year after Easter…a year has flown by(!!!). Agastya’s really looking forward to it. Well, I suppose that’s good…at least he is keen…I remember how clingy I was for a good few months when I started going to school. Thank goodness, they did’nt take after me in that department.
What’s needed for the chicken, rice and vegetable stew-
4 pieces of chicken breasts, skinned
1 cup of rice
4 tomatoes, chopped
1 carrot, diced
a handful of sweetcorn
a handful of peas, fresh or frozen
1 sweet potato, diced
3-4 button mushrooms, cliced
1 onion, finely chopped
3 cloves of garlic, finely chopped
1 bay leaf
a sprig of coriander
1 tblsp butter
salt and pepper to taste
Boil the chicken in two glasses of water. Debone the chicken, cut into strips and save the stock.
Add a blob of butter to a heated pan and stir-fry the mushrooms, peas, sweetcorn, sweet potato and carrots for a couple of minutes.
Add the tomatoes, onion, garlic and bay leaf and simmer till the tomatoes let out their juices. Do not let them dry up.
