  • 2 onions
  • 75g butter
  • 2 tablespoons oil
  • 4 tablespoons brandy
  • 1/2 pint single cream

  1. Slice onion into rings. Heat butter and oil in a large pan then add the onion and sauté with lid on the pan on for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.

  2. Add the chicken pieces to the onions. With the lid on, over a gentle heat saute the chicken, for about 10 minutes until it is white and looks only just cooked. Turning occasionally.
