Method

 
Melt the butter in a large heavy-based pot over medium heat.

Sauté the onion until just tender. Add the mushrooms and cook without colouring them.

Once cooked, remove the mushrooms and onion with a slotted spoon and set aside.

Add the chicken and red pepper to the pot and cook until the chicken is golden brown, straining off any excess fat.

Add the sherry and stock and simmer over a low heat until the chicken is cooked through.

Add the onion and mushroom mixture and stir well, bringing it to the boil.

Remove the pot from the heat and finish off by stirring in the cream and tasting for seasoning. Serve immediately with rice.

Tip of the day

 
Smelly microwave?
Remove cooking smells from your microwave oven by simply slicing a cucumber, spreading it out on a plate and cooking it in the oven at 100% for five minutes.
