  • serves Serves 4
Method
  1. Heat the oil in a shallow lidded casserole dish over a high heat. Season the chicken and fry for 2-3 minutes until browned all over. Scoop out of the pan to a plate.
  2. Add the butter to the same pan and fry the onion, carrots and celery for 5 minutes until soft. Add the mushrooms to the pan and continue for a further 4-5 minutes.
  3. Turn down the heat to low and add the flour and cook out for a minute before adding the thyme and gradually adding the stock, mixing well. Turn the heat back up to a steady simmer and allow the sauce to thicken.
  4. Once the sauce has thickened, return the chicken to the pan and add the potatoes. Add enough water to just cover the chicken.
  5. Bring the pot to a boil, reduce to a simmer, cover with a lid and cook for 20 minutes until the potatoes are almost tender.
  6. Serve sprinkled with chives.
