Tomato Chicken

I have been making this delicious chicken and tomato recipe for a long time! It's great for using up a surplus of summer tomatoes.


    • 8 chicken thighs
    • 4 large ripe tomatoes, quartered
    • 8 cloves garlic, minced
    • 4 teaspoons minced fresh ginger root
    • 1 teaspoon chili powder
    • 1 pinch ground turmeric
    • 1 teaspoon salt
    • ½ teaspoon coconut oil (Optional)


  1. Combine chicken thighs, tomatoes, garlic, ginger, chili powder, turmeric, and salt in a large, heavy pot over high heat; cook and stir until chicken begins to brown.
  2. Reduce the heat to medium-low and braise chicken until tender, about 45 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted near the bone should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C). Sprinkle with coconut oil to serve.
