Chicken Stew with Cauliflower and Tomatoes

This is another recipe from “Modern homemade cuisine” book which I mastered. This dish goes great for dinner and leftovers can be warmed up for lunch.

Chicken is served with cauliflower so there is no need to cook separate side dish unless you want to.

Important note: when cooking chicken with sauce make sure it simmers slow, because sauce has flour and it will burn on high heat.

Ingredients:

  • 2lb of chicken thighs
  • 2lb-2.5lb of cauliflower
  • 4 tomatoes
  • 2 onions
  • 2 tbsp of all purpose flour
  • 2 cups of water
  • 1/3 cups of oil
  • Salt to taste
  • Paprika to taste

How to prepare, step-by-step:

  1. Prepare ingredients: if you use other chicken parts than thighs you may need to adjust cooking time accordingly:
