Mum and Dad sent me this recipe about 10 years ago, so I’m not sure where it came from originally, but it’s just as the name says – a tasty winter meal that you can make in one pot. Gotta love that!
Winter One Pot
3 Tbsp olive oil
1 onion, finely sliced
1 carrot, finely diced
1 stick celery, finely diced
2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
2 Tbsp finely chopped coriander stalks
3 rashers rindless bacon, chopped
4 skinless boneless chicken thighs, cut into quarters
1/2 cup whole kernel corn
500g peeled seeded pumpkin, cut into 3cm dice
2 large potatoes, cut into 3cm dice
4 cups chicken stock
1 cup dried pasta [not ribbon shape; I used gluten-free spirals]
coriander leaves for garnish
salt and freshly ground black pepper
Heat oil over moderate heat and add onion, carrot, celery, garlic, coriander stalks and bacon.
Fry gently until onion is soft and everything is lightly brown.
Turn up heat and add chicken. Mix well and cook until they have all coloured.
Add corn, pumpkin, potatoes and stock and bring to the boil.
Add the pasta, season well with salt and pepper, mix well and bring to the boil. Boil gently for about 15 minutes until everything is cooked.
Serve in bowls, with a sprinkling of coriander leaves.
