- 4-5lb boneless skinless chicken thighs, cut into 8 serving pieces with excess at and skin trimmed
- Salt & pepper
- 1 tsp olive oil
- 2 red or yellow bell peppers chopped
- 1 yellow onion
- 1 clove garlic
- 1 can of diced tomatoes
- 2 tsp hot smoked paprika
- 1 can chickpeas, drained and rinsed
- ¾ cup pitted green olives
Place a flameproof slow-cooker insert or frying pan on to medium-high heat and add oil, bell peppers, onions, and sauté until softened about 5 minutes. Add garlic and cook, stirring, for 1 minute. Stir in the tomatoes and paprika. Transfer the insert or the ingredients if using a frying pan to the slow cooker and add chicken and chickpeas, stir and turn the chicken to coat evenly with bell pepper mixture. Cover and cook on low heat for 5 ½ hours. The chicken should be tender throughout. Uncover and add olives. Recover and cook on low heat for 30 minutes longer. Transfer to a bowl and enjoy!
