This is a really easy tasty one-pot dish. Serves approx 3, so adjust proportions according to how many people you would like to feed.
2 tbsp olive oil
1 leek, washed well, trimmed and chopped
2 cloves garlic, sliced
4 slices smoked bacon chopped
6 chicken thigh fillets, halved
Plain flour, for dusting chicken
200g small button mushrooms
4 baby potatoes, cubed (to about 1cm)
Ĺ cup (125ml) white wine
1 cup (250ml) chicken stock
3 tbsp dried italian herbs
Ĺ cup (125ml) double cream
Pepper and salt
Heat a frying pan or large pot over medium heat. Add oil, leek, garlic, smoked bacon. Fry for a couple of minutes until golden.
Dust chicken with flour and shake off any excess. Cook until golden on each side.
Add mushrooms, cook for 2 minutes.
Add potatoes, wine, stock, dried italian herbs. Reduce heat and simmer for 25 minutes, or until chicken is tender and cooked through.
Stir in cream and let simmer a few more minutes until sauce thickens. Add salt and pepper to taste.
Note: If your mushrooms are larger than small button mushrooms cut in half or quarter to make a smaller size so they cook through.
