Ingredients

1 tsp paprika

2 tbsp olive oil

1.35kg Butcher's Selection Medium Chicken

2 medium red onions, roughly chopped

1 red pepper, de-seeded and roughly chopped

1 yellow pepper, de-seeded and roughly chopped

1 clove garlic, finely sliced

6 medium vine-on tomatoes, quartered

1 bay leaf

150ml fino sherry (or dry white wine)

200ml chicken stock

Pinch of saffron, steeped in 2 tbsp warm water

1 tbsp flat-leaf parsley, finely chopped

20g flaked almonds, toasted and chopped

Method

1
Mix together the paprika and 1 tbsp of the olive oil. Massage over the chicken and set aside.
2
Heat the remaining oil in a large frying pan. Add the onions and fry for 2 minutes. Add the peppers and garlic, and fry for a further 2 minutes until slightly soft. Set aside.
3
Place the chicken in a large slow cooker. Combine the pepper mixture with the tomatoes and bay leaf and arrange around the chicken.
4
Pour over the sherry, stock and saffron with its water. Make sure the meat is covered - add more stock if needed - but don't fill the pot more than three-quarters full.
5
Cook on high for 1 hour, then turn to the lowest setting and cook for at least 5 hours more, or until the meat juices run clear. Sprinkle with the parsley and almonds and serve.
