      Drain / dry and cut sun dried tomatoes into 1cm pieces.

      Heat 2 tablespoons of oil in a flameproof casserole dish ( with lid ). Add the chicken and brown all over. Take out and drain on kitchen paper.
    5. 5
      Add onions and peppers and brown - about 5 minutes.( More oil may be needed.).

      This recipe is from Delia Smith's Summer Collection Recipes. I bought the book just for this one recipe in 1990, and have been making many times for family and company, a nice tasty satisfying recipe. ( Delia puts in 1/2 teaspoon hot paprika in place of the cayenne. Otherwards everything else is exact)

      This was exactly what I was looking for! Brown rice, flavor, and spice! I added a bit more cayenne pepper because I like it spicy. It also looked so beautiful too!
