Chicken and vegetable Stew

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 700 g boneless skinless chicken thighs, cut into 2 cm dice
  • 1 large onion, finely chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 2 stalks celery, cut into 1 cm dice
  • 2 carrots, peeled and cut into 1 cm dice
  • 1 tablespoon tomato paste
  • 2 potatoes, peeled and cut into 1 cm dice
