Method

First season the chicken with salt and pepper and cook on a medium heat in some olive oil to brown it off. Then add the garlic and rosemary.

Add a glass of white wine and cook for a couple of minutes.  Reduce to a low heat and add the onions, peppers and chopped tomatoes.

Stir to mix the tomatoes, peppers and onion with the chicken and then cover.  Leave to simmer on a low heat for about 30 minutes, stirring from time to time.

If the sauce needs thickening remove the lid for the last 10 minutes and then serve.
