DIRECTIONS

  • Fry potatoes in 2 or 3 Tb of oil till tender on medium heat in a non-stick frying pan, cover, and give an occasional stir till soft and golden.
  • In the mean time, put tomatoes in boiling water and leave for 1 minute.
  • Discard boiling water and put tomatoes in cold water, leave for 1 minute.
  • Peal tomatoes and dice.
  • Chop onion and set to fry in a separate pot.
  • Chop green/red pepper and add to pot.
  • Add half the garlic to the pot and diced tomatoes.
  • Add parsley and cayenne pepper to pot.
  • In a separate non stick pan, fry remaining garlic till golden with chick peas.
  • Add carrots to the pot, and chick peas and garlic from the second pan.
  • On the pan where the chick peas were, place chicken with at least 1 Tb of salt. It will generate some liquid, let this evaporate and stir till crispy and golden. (Note that it will tend to break into strings).
  • Transfer chicken and potatoes to the pot.
  • Add tomato sauce if desired.
  • Add pepper to taste and check for saltiness.
  • Enjoy.
