Chicken chasseur

Posted: July 8, 2011 by nietize in Casserole, Chicken, French

I really started cooking when I went to New York and bought this cook book, The Best Ever French Cooking Course. Chicken chasseur was one of the first recipes I used from it and after it, I was really hooked on this dish, i must have cooked this on average once every month. I didn’t used to like food with tomatoes but after this, i kept buying tomatoes in bulk to use in my cooking.

Dredge 8 chicken thighs in flour, salt and pepper and pan fry them till they are brown on both sides. Remove from pan. Saute 1 onions, sliced into rings, 1 garlic clove, sliced, and 250g mushrooms, quartered, till they are golden. Return chicken to the pan with the juices and add 4 tbsp white wine. Bring to the boil. Add a 400g can of chopped tomatoes and enough chicken stock to just cover the chicken thighs and simmer till the chicken is cooked. Serve with pasta or rice.
