This is a delicious dish, very popular thanks to the presence of red peppers. For this recipe we only use horn shaped red peppers known as Florina peppers, mostly cultivated in the Northern region of Florina, thus the name. They’ve got an intense, sweet flavor which makes every dish they’re used in so delicious.
Here’s the recipe:
1 medium size free ranged chicken cut into pieces
4 garlic cloves finely chopped
1 glass dry white wine
5 red peppers cored, seeded and cut into pieces
2 cans chopped tomatoes
1/2 cup esti extra virgin olive oil
In a large casserole heat the olive oil. Add the chicken pieces and fry until colored. Pour in the wine and let it evaporate for a few minutes. Add the garlic and sauté for a couple of minutes. Add tomato, peppers, salt and pepper and lower the heat.
Cover and let it simmer for at least an hour. Give it a look now and then in case it needs any liquid –add some water- and stir gently.
In the end the meat is cooked tenderly and the sauce is thick.
Enjoy with a glass of Greek red wine!
