    Peter J's Note:

    A slightly modified version of a recipe from Easy International Cooking that is really bursting with flavour. With the chillies leave the seeds if you like some heat, remove the seeds if you want a little less heat or leave them out all together for a mild result. It is great served with crusty bread and also re-heats well. I've specified thigh meat because it's cheaper and works well, but you can use breast or other cuts as well.

      I had this ready for DH when he returned from a business trip. He enjoyed it tremendously (we both did)! I cooked it in a clay pot and found the flavor was marvelous and had a depth that must have been from the red wine. The cornflour gave it an earthy taste (I usually have a bag of Harina Pan in the cupboard but didn't so used stone ground cornmeal - wonderful!) The spiciness from the peppers was just right for us and we liked the contrast between the salty olives and the sweet corn. I will halve the olives next time (and DH has requested a next time) so as to balance that bite with the corn kernels. I served it with tomatoes and avocados tossed in olive oil and lemon juice on a bed of shredded lettuce - a cool and refreshing contrast to this hot a spicy dish! THANKS PeterJ!!

      I had my doubts about red wine in a Mexican Style dish but it worked pretty well. I'd add a teaspoon or two of cumin next time and finish with fresh chopped coriander to give it even more of a Mexican feel. I had to use chicken breast, so reduced the first bit of the cook to half an hour-then continued on for the last 15 minutes. That worked perfectly-the breasts were not at all dried out. I felt the flour coating the chicken thickened the dish enough for us, so omitted the cornflour. I used all the chilli flakes but just one long green chilli as the ones we have right now are SUPER hot (which is unusual for the long ones)
