Chicken with ajvarsauce

Ajvar is a pepper-based condiment made principally from red bell peppers. It may also contain garlic, eggplant and chili peppers. Ajvar originates in Serbian cuisine and was therefore long known as “Serbian salad” or “Serbian vegetable caviar”.

  • 4 large chicken breasts, cut into strips
  • 200 gr mushrooms, sliced
  • 1 yellow onion, finely chopped
  • 2 cloves of garlic, finely chopped
  • 340 gr ajvar relish
  • 200 ml coconut milk
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ½ tsp pepper
  • 250 gr cherry tomatoes
  • 70 gr fresh spinach (optional)

In a pan, fry chicken, mushrooms, onion and garlic together, until the chicken is golden and the vegetables are soft.

Add ajvar relish, coconutmilk, salt and pepper, and let it simmer all together for a couple of minutes.

Half the cherry tomatoes, and add to the pan together with spinach, and bring everything to the boil

Serve immediately, preferably with cauliflower rice.

This recipe is also suitable for salmon.
