Heat the oil in a large frying pan.
Add the onion, carrot, leek and red pepper and cook for 5 minutes on a medium heat.
Add the crushed garlic, chicken stock, tomatoes, sundried tomato paste, stir well and bring to the boil.
Cover and simmer stirring occasionally until slightly thickened.
Mix in the cooked chicken pieces and heat through for 5 minutes.
Serve with pasta, rice or quinoa.
I choose to serve mine with quinoa.
I did all the preparation for this meal in the morning therefore it was quick and easy to make for tea. I did take the easy option of using the quinoa you can buy in a packet and only requires 2 minutes to heat in the microwave because it does save time if you are in a rush.
Hope you give it a try and enjoy it, my son enjoyed it and he can be a tricky customer!!
