  • Boneless Chicken Breasts - 1.5 (chopped into cube sized pieces)
  • Medium sized Onion - 1 (finely chopped)
  • Medium sized Tomato - 1 (finely chopped)
  • Carrot - 1 (finely chopped)
  • Garlic - 2 cloves (minced)
  • Ghee - 2 tablespoons
  • Cumin Seeds - 1/2 teaspoon
  • Red Wine (Cabernet Sauvignon - 1/4th cup
  • Crushed Tomatoes - 5 tablespoons
  • Himalayan Sea Salt - 1.5 teaspoons
  • Chicken Stock - 1 cup (Substitute chicken stock with water if not available)
  • Red chillies - 2
  • Apple cider Vinegar - 2 tablespoons


  • Cumin powder - 1/2 teaspoon
  • Dried Rosemary - 1/2 teaspoon
  • Dried Basil - 1/2 teaspoon
  • Dried Thyme - 1/2 teaspoon
  • Dried Tarragon - 1/2 teaspoon
  • Red pepper powder - 1/2 teaspoon


  • Coriander leaves


  • Chope the red chillies into half and dip them in the apple cider vinegar for atleast 15 minutes
  • To a skillet add 2 tablespoons of ghee
  • When adequately hot – add in the cumin seeds and minced garlic
  • Saute for a minute until the garlic is translucent and then add in all the chopped veggies alongwith a teaspoon of Himalayan Sea Salt and cook for 3-4 minutes
  • After 3-4 minutes add in the spices and red wine and cook for another 2-3 minutes
  • Meanwhile grind the chilies into a not so smooth paste and add the paste to the stew alongwith the crushed tomatoes- mix well and cook for another 3-4 minutes
  • Add in the chicken and coat well in the base sauce
  • Add in 1 cup of chicken stock if using stock and cook the chicken on a medium to low flame for 60 whole minutes while checking on the stew at every 20 minute interval
  • After the first 20 minute interval check on the stew – mix well and add in 1/3rd cup of water (if using water) – do not add if using stock
  • After the next 20 minute interval add in extra 1/2 cup of water again
  • I like the consistency of stew / chili on the soupy side and hence I recommend adding 1/2 cup – however if you like the consistency on the thicker side – you can add less than half cup water as per your choice
  • This step is valid for those using chicken stock as well – i.e. after 40 minutes if you feel you stew / chili needs to loosen up a bit add in a little water as per your choice
  • After the third 20 minute interval the stew / chili should be done
  • Garnish with chopped coriander leaves
  • Devour!
