preheat the oven to gas 3 / 170 c
Heat the olive oil in a hob and oven safe casserole dish, over medium heat. Sear the chicken until golden and then set aside on kitchen paper.
Add the onion, garlic and crushed chillies to the pan and stir. Cook until the onions have softened, about 4 mins.
Add rice and season with salt, pepper and saffron. Cook rice until golden, stirring constantly, about 10 minutes.
Stir in the tomatoes, green chillies and chicken stock
Place chicken thighs on top, bring to the boil, cover then place in the preheated oven
Bake for 1 hour then sprinkle the peas, red peppers and olives on top. Pour in the water but do not stir. Cover and cook for about 20 minutes or until the chicken is fully cooked.
If you don‘t like olives, don‘t put them in. It really doesn‘t impair the flavour of the dish if you don‘t use them.
