Right, here's a quickie!
What you need (for 4 people):
8 pieces of chicken2 garlic clovessalt, pepper, olive oil, butter200 gr. leaks200 gr. mushrooms½ bottle dry white wine½ pint double cream1 handful tarragon2 teaspoons Dijon mustard1 lemon
How you do it:
Joint a chicken into 8 pieces (or just buy chicken pieces) and season them rubbing their skin with salt, pepper, and garlic. Brown in oil and butter in a large pan. Add chopped leaks, more garlic and quartered mushrooms.
When chicken and vegetables are browned, deglaze the pan with the wine, stirring in any burnt bits on bottom of pan. Boil off the alcohol. Add the cream, a good handful of chopped tarragon, 2 teaspoons of Dijon mustard, and a squeeze of lemon juice. Simmer for 20/30 minutes until the chicken is cooked through.
Adjust seasoning and serve with sautéed potatoes or buttered noodles and whatever vegetable you prefer (French beans go well).
