  • 1 kilo chicken thighs organic free range
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 onion chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic chopped
  • 1 carrot chopped
  • 2 stalks celery chopped
  • 2 cups almond or cashew nut milk one to use with rice flour later
  • 1 cup bone broth or veggie stock
  • 4 large field mushrooms chopped
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp pepper
  • 2 tsp paprika
  • 1/2 tsp cumin
  • 12 tsp mixed herbs
  • 1 heaped tbs rice flour to thicken sauce
  • 1 tsp chilli powder (to personal taste) optional


  1. Prepare chopped veggies

  2. Heat olive oil in a non stick frying pan and stir-fry chicken for a couple of minutes. Then add the onions and garlic and cook just until onions turn opaque.

  3. Now place these stir-fried ingredients into your slow cooker or a large sauce pan. (I use a slow cooker as it is so much easier and you do not have to stir it so much).

    Add 1 cup of nut milk and 1 cup of stock (I use bone broth that I had previously frozen).

    Mix in the chopped celery, mushrooms and carrots.

    Add salt pepper and herbs and spices

  4. Set the slow cooker for 5-6 hours.

    If cooking in a saucepan, you will need so stir occasionally on a low heat for 30 mins.

  5. To thicken the sauce: I put one cup of nut milk into a jam jar then add 1 tbsp of rice flour. Put the lid on and shake it to mix well. Then pour it into the saucepan or slow cooker. This is a great easy way to thicken any sauces.

  6. Serve with Basmati rice or GF pasta and freshly steamed green vegetables.
