Scotch Bonnet And Red Wine Chicken

DSC_0998

It’s rare when it happens but sometimes there is leftover red wine in the MyFBL household. And given that it’s normally undrinkable due to being left open overnight while the residents (hi) have passed out in a drunken stupor, the only thing to do with it is put it into food.

Ingredients

  • 1 skinless, boneless chicken breast
  • Half an onion
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • Half a Scotch bonnet (I put a whole one in which was probably a little bit too much)
  • Red wine, to taste (not cooking wine; Rachel Khoo once said that if wine isn’t good enough to drink, it’s not good enough to cook with). I used rioja.
  • Cherry tomatoes, to taste
  • 1 red pepper
  • Dried mixed herbs
  • Paprika

Method

Dice the chicken and mix paprika in.
