Ready in 30 minutes
Low-calorie cooking spray
3 green peppers, deseeded and finely diced
2 red onions, finely sliced
4 celery sticks, finely chopped
3 garlic cloves, crushed
3 tbsp tomato purée
2 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp hot or sweet smoked paprika
500g skinless and boneless chicken thighs, visible fat removed, sliced into 1cm-thick pieces
2 x 400g cans chickpeas, drained and rinsed
500ml chicken stock
200g fat-free natural Greek yogurt
25g fresh flat-leaf parsley, finely chopped
1 Spray a large, deep, non-stick frying pan with low-calorie cooking spray and place over a medium heat. Add the peppers, onions and celery, and fry for 5-6 minutes, or until slightly softened, stirring often. Add two-thirds of the crushed garlic, the tomato purée and spices with a large splash of water. Stir-fry for a further 3-4 minutes until everything is fragrant.
2 Add the chicken, chickpeas, and the stock. Season, bring to a simmer and cook for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally, or until the veg have softened and the chicken is cooked through.
3 Meanwhile, mix the remaining garlic with the yogurt and season. Once the stew is cooked, stir in most of the parsley, and divide between 4 bowls. Top each with a dollop of yogurt and scatter over the remaining parsley to serve.

There is a huge list of Free Food to choose from, which doesn’t need to be weighed, calorie counted or measured.
You can also snack on these to satisfy your hunger in between meals.
In addition, you are encouraged to eat measured quantities of certain foods, known as ‘Healthy Extras’ that provide nutrients essential for a healthy, balanced diet.
These include milk and cheese (for calcium) and cereals and wholemeal bread (for fibre and minerals).
And so you never feel deprived you can enjoy limited amounts of treats which are higher-calorie, less filling foods that include chocolate, crisps and alcohol.
