An autumnal hearty delight to feed the whole family! Potatoes, tomatoes, olives and pancetta with chicken all slow cooked to perfection.
In a large casserole dish or fry pan, brown the onions, garlic and pancetta.
Add the carrot and celery, chicken thighs, bay leaves, tomatoes and chicken stock. Mix well before adding the sliced mushrooms and potatoes.
Add 1 cup of water and cover. Bring to a boil and then reduce to heat to a simmer and cook gently for 40 mins.
Remove the lid and allow to reduce for 15 mins or until the liquids have reduced by about half. Check seasoning and adjust as needed, stirring well. Remove the bay leaves.
Serve in deep bowls with plenty of chopped Italian parsley on top.
