1. Brown the chicken pieces in hot olive oil in a large saucepan ? do this in two batches. Return all the chicken to the saucepan and season with salt.

2. Add the garlic, rosemary and chilli and stir for a few minutes. Add the white wine and scrape the bottom of the saucepan to loosen the brown bits. Cover and reduce the heat. Simmer the chicken for 45-50 minutes and turn the pieces occasionally. Add water if the liquid in the saucepan evaporates.

3. Once the chicken is cooked and tender ? the meat should almost fall off the bone ? add the tomatoes and olives. Simmer for another 10 minutes or until the tomato skins start to burst. Serve with creamy mashed potatoes.
Wine suggestion: The dry white wine used in this dish makes a fine accompaniment.
