Chicken Afritada

My adaptation.

In a large pot bring to a boil:
I diced green pepper
1/2 bunch of celery ~large chunks
1 onion ~sliced
1 can tomato juice/vegetable cocktail
1 can diced tomatoes
chilli flakes to taste

Bring to a good boil and let rest. Add some fresh basil. If this step can be done the day before the flavours intensify.

In a large stock pot bring 8 cups water, to a boil with:

5 potatoes ~peeled and cubed
6 boneless skinless chicken thighs ~ cut each into 3 strips
1 bag mini carrots
1/4 bunch of celery ~chopped
lots of pepper

Cook until potatoes are JUST cooked and drain (reserve liquid for soup stock in another recipe).

In a large casserole (or crock pot), pour 1/2 of tomato mixture. Pour potato/chicken mixture on top and finish with the rest of the tomato mixture.
Bake at 300 for 1 hour covered. Top with your favourite cheese and broil until cheese is melted.

Serve with warm bread on a cold day.

"Bon Appetit!"
