Tomato based chicken and thyme

Tomato based chicken with Thyme

This is so easy to make and the combination of thyme and a little butter in the sauce makes the chicken taste amazing and this sauce can accompany polenta.

Serves: 4 to 5 people
Cooking Time: 3 hours approx

8 pieces of chicken (either drumsticks or thighs)
750g bottle of tomato passata
1/2 a stock cube (chicken) in 1/4 cup water
1/2 a handful of thyme fresh (leaves )
2 garlic cloves 
1 teaspoon of lurpak butter
Green Beans if desired 

Combine everything in a large casserole dish.  Then place lid on casserole dish and cook in oven for approx 3 hours on around 170 degrees celsius. Turn pieces after each hour or so.  If you like green beans place them into the casserole dish 1/2 hour before serving and these will melt into the sauce.

Make with side dish of rice or polenta and steamed vegetables.
