This quantity makes four servings of Gluten Free Spanish Chicken.

7 oz (200g) pack cherry tomatoes, halved

7 oz (200g) jar marinated peppers in oil, chopped

14 oz (400g) chicken, cut into chunks

Small bunch flatleaf parsley, roughly chopped, to garnish

For the dressing

2 dessert spoons red wine vinegar

6 dessert spoons oil from the pepper jar or olive oil

½ teaspoon smoked paprika

Juice of ½ an orange or 1 satsuma


1. Heat some vegetable oil (we like rapeseed oil or olive oil) in a non-stick frying pan (or you can use a wok).

2. Place the chicken into the heated oil and cook the chicken until cooked right through and lightly brown on the outside.

3. While the chicken is cooking, make the dressing. Using a stick blender or mini processor, whiz together the vinegar, pepper oil, smoked paprika and orange juice until smooth. If you don’t have a blender, whisk together by hand.

4. Place the cherry tomatoes and peppers in a bowl, mix in the cooked chicken.  Add the dressing and mix well.

5. Serve your chicken mixture on top of sweet potato (or rice) and garnish with parsley.
