Ingredients

Method

  • STEP 1

    Season the chicken with salt and pepper. Heat the olive oil in a lidded sauté pan or shallow casserole. Pan-fry the chicken over a medium-high heat, turning, until golden on both sides. Remove from the pan and keep to one side. You will need about 2 tbsp fat left in the pan for cooking the onions, so if the legs have released a lot of fat, drain off the excess. Add the onions and mushrooms to the pan, stirring occasionally until they have a little colour and are beginning to soften, 6-8 mins. Stir in the tomato purée and white wine, then pour in the consommé or stock.

  • STEP 2

    Return the chicken to the pan and bring to a simmer. Place a lid on the pan and continue to cook, allowing the sauce to just simmer for about 1 hr, or until the meat is completely tender.

  • STEP 3

    To finish, skim the sauce of any further excess fat, then add the tomatoes, if using. Simmer, without the lid, for a further 2-3 mins to soften them, then scatter over the herbs.

RECIPE TIPS
GARY'S TIPS

Although home-grown tomatoes are not in season right now, many of the imported ones can still have a good flavour, providing they are totally ripe. If you quarter the tomatoes and then scoop out the seeds, the sauce will be less watery. For a thicker sauce, loosen 1-2 tbsp cornflour with a little white wine or water and whisk in at the end of step 2.
