  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 2 garlic cloves, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 bay leaf
  • a handful of chopped parlsey
  • a pinch of cayenne

  1. Season the meat with salt. Optional: Marinate overnight in red wine, thyme, salt, pepper and oil.
  2. In a sauté pan, heat some oil and brown the chicken pieces for about 2 minutes on each side.
  3. Set aside.
  4. In a pot, on medium heat, cook the onion, pepper and celery in the butter for 10 minutes.
