Equipment

  • Pre-heated oven 180FAN / 200c
  • Saucepan
  • Ovenproof frying pan (or roasting tin)

Ingredients

  • 1 kg Chicken thighs skinned, deboned
  • 750 g new potatoes quartered
  • 150 g button mushrooms halved
  • 1 onion sliced
  • 3 cloves garlic finely chopped
  • 15 g fresh tarragon discard stalks, chop leaves
  • 35 g butter
  • 0.5 tbsp Dijon mustard
  • 80 ml double cream
  • 1 tin cream mushroom soup
  • 30 ml olive oil
  • 1 sweetheart cabbage finely sliced

Instructions

  • Par-boil potatoes in salted water for 7-10 minutes, then drain and reserve.
  • Fry chicken thighs in splash of oil and a good pinch of salt and pepper over a medium high heat for 4-5 minutes each side. Once cooked, remove chicken thighs from frying pan, place on plate and set aside to rest.
  • Fry the onions and garlic in the pan, add butter and season. Cook for 3 minutes until onions soften then add mushrooms and chopped tarragon and cook for another couple of minutes, stirring frequently.
  • Reduce heat to low and add soup, potatoes, mustard, cream, chicken thighs and any juice from resting. Shake pan to keep contents moving a little for another minute just to warm the sauce then pour everything into a baking dish (or leave in the pan if oven proof) and bake in oven for 25 minutes.
  • Five minutes before the chicken is done, gently boil the cabbage in salted water for a few minutes, then drain and serve alongside the chicken.
