  • Step 1

    Peel and chop the onion. Wash the bell pepper, remove the seeds and cut into small pieces. Dab the chicken breast dry and cut into narrow strips.

  • Step 2

    Heat some oil in a pan. Fry the chicken meat in it in portions. Season with salt and pepper. Then remove from the pan and keep warm.

  • Step 3

    Sauté the quartered mushrooms in a little olive oil and then remove them. Add a little more oil to the pan if needed. Add the onion pieces and sauté lightly. Now add the bell pepper pieces as well and sauté together for about 5 minutes.

  • Step 4

    Add the ajvar and mix well. Deglaze with vegetable broth and let the sauce simmer for 10-15 minutes. Then stir in cream and then puree until smooth.

  • Step 5

    Now add the meat, mushrooms, and peas back to the sauce in the pan. Bring to a boil once and mix in chopped parsley. Season to taste. I served it with basmati rice.
