3h 20m


  • 1 tbs olive oil
  • 4 Coles RSPCA Approved Australian Chicken Thigh Cutlets
  • 4 Coles RSPCA Approved Australian Chicken Drumsticks
  • 1 red onion, cut into wedges
  • 1 red capsicum, seeded, coarsely chopped
  • 1 yellow capsicum, seeded, coarsely chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 2 anchovy fillets, finely chopped
  • 1 tbs finely chopped oregano
  • 1/2 cup (125ml) dry white wine
  • 400g can cherry tomatoes
  • 1 cup (250ml) chicken stock
  • 1/2 cup (80g) Sicilian olives



Heat the oil in a large frying pan or flameproof casserole pan over medium-high heat. Cook combined chicken, in 2 batches, turning occasionally, for 5 mins or until golden brown. Transfer to a plate.


Add onion and combined capsicum to pan. Cook, stirring, for 5 mins or until onion softens. Add the garlic, anchovy and oregano and cook, stirring, for 1 min or until aromatic. Return chicken to the pan and pour over the wine. Bring to the boil.


Transfer the chicken mixture to a slow cooker. Add the tomato, stock and olives. Cover and cook for 3 hours on high (or 6 hours on low) or until chicken is almost falling off the bone and sauce thickens slightly. Season.
