Recipe Ingredients

  • 4 chicken leg portions
  • salt and black pepper
  • 2 tbsp plain flour
  • 2 tbsp sunflower oil
  • 25g butter
  • 100g smoked streaky bacon
  • 450g button onions
  • 600ml red wine
  • 1 chicken stock cube
  • 2 tbsp tomato purée
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 1 tbsp chopped fresh thyme
  • 225g mushrooms

Recipe Instructions

- Toss the chicken legs in seasoned flour until evenly coated. Heat the oil and butter in a flameproof casserole dish or large frying pan. Add the chicken and fry for 10 minutes, or until browned all over. Remove from the pan and set aside.
- Cut the bacon into small dice and peel the onions. Add both the bacon and the onions to the casserole or pan and fry for about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
- Pour in the wine and allow to bubble for a minute or two. Then stir in the crumbled stock cube and tomato purée. Crush the garlic and add to the dish or pan and lower the heat. Cover with a lid and simmer gently for 45 minutes.
- Halve the mushrooms and add to the dish or pan. Simmer for a further 15 minutes. Adjust the seasoning and serve with slices of French bread.
