Chicken with white wine and onion seed

This is the delicious filling from the Slightly Failed Pie, which we adapted and served over rice.

Chicken breasts (corresponding to the amount of people)
Baby carrots (8-10), peeled and sliced thinly
One large onion
Good slug of garlic paste
Likewise of tomato puree
2 large red chilis
about 200ml white wine
One carton of passata
2 tbsp black onion seeds
bunch of coriander

Start with the chilis - slice thinly and leave as many or as few seeds in as you like, and soften in some olive oil. Add to this the chopped onion, garlic paste and tomato paste and allow to cook down. You might put about a third of the carton of passata in at this point too and allow it to cook together.

Add the sliced chicken breasts, carrots and onion seeds and allow the chicken to seal well. Then put the rest of the passata and the white wine in and once the alcohol's cooked off from the wine put the lid on and leave it to simmer together slowly.

When you're ready to serve up just take it off the heat and stir the chopped coriander in. Have it with rice or potatoes :)
