Sweet and Spicy Tomato and Pepper Chicken Stew


  • 1 ½ lbs chicken thigh meat, boneless and skinless, cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 2 TBLS olive oil
  • 1 green pepper, diced
  • 2 Spanish onions, diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 ½ TBLS chili powder
  • 2 tsp Garam masala
  • 1/8 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1/8 tsp ground ginger
  • ½ tsp kosher salt
  • 2 tsp brown sugar
  • 1 can (14.5-ounce) diced tomatoes
  • 1 cup low-sodium chicken broth
  • 1/2 cup raisins
  • 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1 can (14.5-ounce) white beans, drained and rinsed
  • 4 TBLS chopped fresh parsley

Cooking Directions:

In a Dutch oven, heat olive oil over medium high heat.  When hot, add chicken and stir.  Saute, stirring often, for about 5 minutes or until chicken is browned on all sides.

Add green pepper, onions, and garlic.  Stir and reduce heat to medium.  Cook, stirring occasionally, for about 6-7 minutes or until vegetables are softened.  Add chili powder, Garam masala, nutmeg, ginger, salt, and brown sugar.  Saute, stirring, for another 2 minutes.

Add tomatoes, stock, raisins, and vinegar.  Stir, raise heat to high and bring to a boil.  Reduce heat, cover, and cook for about 25-30 minutes or until chicken is tender and cooked through.

Add beans, stir, and cook for another 2-3 minutes or until beans are heated through.  Serve (over rice, if desired) garnished with chopped parsley.
