Serves 4




  • 2 tbsp garlic and/or onion infused olive oil
  • 2 cm piece of ginger, finely chopped
  • 1 tbsp fresh thyme leaves
  • 1 mild red chilli, finely chopped (Seeds out)
  • 2 cinnamon sticks
  • 1 medium tomato, chopped
  • 400ml canned chopped tomatoes

  • 1 cup organic bone broth (See recipe)
  • 1 large eggplant, chopped into 1 cm pieces
  • 450g organic chicken thighs - bone in (for added nutrients)


  1. Heat the oil in a large pan on a medium heat. Add the ginger, thyme, chilli, cinnamon stick and chopped fresh tomato and fry for 2 minutes. 
  2. Next, add in the canned tomatoes, chopped coriander stalks and bone broth into the mixture. Give this a good stir, then let simmer for 5 minutes. 
  3. Add in your eggplant and chicken pieces, then cover and simmer on a low heat for around 20-25 minutes. If the sauce dries out, add a little water to loosen it.
  4. Check that chicken is cooked and eggplant is tender then season to taste and discard the cinnamon stick. Take of the heat, garnish with fresh coriander leaves and serve with ½ cup of white rice (if you are on SIBO diet group 2 and find you tolerate it ok, otherwise omit the rice and enjoy as a stew/soup)
