Chicken Casserole Recipe Method
  1. OK - brown off your meat in batches in some of the olive oil and keep to one side.
  2. Using the same pan, brown the onions and red pepper then, on a lower heat the garlic. 
  3. Set to one side.
  4. If you're using a slow cooker add all the ingredients now, plus a glass of water and set to cook for three to four hours depending on the meat you use.
  5. You can cook it on top of the stove in a pan with a lid or in the oven using a covered casserole dish too. 
  6. Cook the meat with all the ingredients except the olives, capers and parsley for an hour - add the olives, capers and half the parsley and cook for a further 20 minutes. 
  7. If you are doing this in the oven start it off at 200ºc/400ºf for the first half hour, then turn it down to 180ºc/360ºf for the rest of the cooking time... adding the olives, capers and half the parsley 20 minutes before the end.
  8. When it's ready you can serve - garnished with the rest of the parsley - we like to serve it with some of our Mediterranean roast potatoes.
