  1. Step 1

    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.
  2. Step 2

    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.
  3. Step 3

    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.
