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

 
Baobab leaves
African cooks use leaves from the massive baobab tree to thicken their stews. Like okra, the leaves give the dish a congealing texture that's characteristic of West African stews. Okra will give a similar effect if you can't find baobab leaves.
