Chicken in a garlic sauce

I found this recipe on this blog here and decided to try it out. I added mushrooms, as I wanted more vegetables. It was really tasty, my 11 year old loved it as much as I did. I served it with rice and it made a filling & satisfying meal. Its so easy to do and uses mostly storecupboard ingredients.

Ingredients (serves 2/3)

3 Chicken Breast, boneless, skinless and cubed
2 Tbsp Olive Oil
1 Tbsp Butter
½ Large  Onion, chopped
3 Cloves Garlic, chopped
1 Bay Leaf
60ml Sherry
500ml Chicken Stock
A pinch of Paprika
Sea Salt
Freshly Ground Black Pepper

In a large skillet over high heat, add 1 Tbsp of Olive oil and butter. When the butter has melted, brown the chicken in two batches. Remove and set aside.

Lower the heat and add the remaining oil. Mix in the onion and garlic. Sauté until the mixture becomes translucent.

Then turn the heat back on high and toss in the chicken, bay leaf and give it a quick stir. Add the sherry and bring it to a boil, then mix in the chicken stock. Bring the mixture to a boil again and reduce to a simmer. Cook the chicken for about 4 to 5 minutes until the sauce has thicken and season with sea salt and pepper. Remove from the heat and sprinkle some paprika and serve immediately. Serve with rice.
