  1. Season the chicken with salt and pepper and dust with the flour.
  2. Heat the oil in a large saucepan and cook the chicken for 2-3 minutes, or until browned all over. Remove from the pan and set aside.
  3. Add more oil to the pan (if required) and fry the garlic and onion for 2-3 minutes, or until soft. Add the carrot and mushrooms and fry for 3-4 minutes, or until the mushrooms are tender.
  4. Return the browned chicken to the pan and mix in the stock, tinned tomatoes, kidney beans, mixed herbs and tomato purée. Bring to the boil, cover and simmer for 30 minutes. 3 minutes before the end of the cooking time add the peas. Season to taste with salt and pepper and serve immediately.
