Orange and Rosemary Three Meat Stew

I decided to switch things up a little and share a meaty dish as it’s all been sweet things and breakfast things for the past few weeks and I just had to share this one as it’s one of my all time favourite creations! It screams winter and christmas and all things orange and rosemary. It’s a proper hearty stew, the ultimate comfort food and so so so so soooo easy! You literally shove it in a pan and leave it to simmer whilst you get on with planning Christmas.. or work.. orrrrr whatever you like to spend your free time doing!


Ingredients – serves six

2 onions, diced

4 celery sticks, sliced

2 carrots, peeled and diced

4 garlic cloves, diced

250g bacon, diced

500g chicken breast, diced

400g sausages, each one cut into 4

1 orange, roughly zested

1 tbsp dried rosemary

150g vacuum packed chestnuts, chopped

2 cans of chopped tomatoes

700ml boiling water

1 tbsp apple cidre vinegar

2 handfuls of chopped parsley

200g rainbow chard/spinach/cavlo nero, chopped

30g grated parmesn to serve



Pop the onions, celery, carrots, garlic, bacon, chicken and sausages into a large pan over a high heat.

Once they start to fry, pour in the orange, chestnuts, rosemary, tomatoes, water, vinegar, parsley and greens and stir to combine.

Cover with a lid and bring to the boil.

Once boiling, turn to a medium simmer for 45 minutes.

Turn off the heat and divide the stew between six bowls.

Sprinkle with parmesan and serve!

P.S. this is one of my favourites…
