Satisfy your cravings with this comforting, hearty meal.

Ingredients

1 tbs olive oil

10 chicken thigh fillets, boneless but with skin on

1-2 tbs butter

2 leeks, washed and sliced

1 cup chestnut mushrooms, thickly sliced

1 clove garlic, finely chopped

4 oz dry white wine

1 vegetable or chicken stock cube

5 oz boiling water

freshly ground black pepper

5 oz heavy cream

large handful mixed fresh herbs (such as parsley, thyme and sage), chopped

To serve
Buttery mashed potatoes
Mashed sweet potatoes and carrots
Steamed green vegetables

Method

  1. Heat the oil in the Denby Shallow Cast Iron dish and add the chicken pieces skin side down. Fry for a few minutes until golden then turn and seal the other side. Turn down the heat and cook for a further 5-10 minutes depending on size, until just cooked through. Remove from the pan and set aside. Alternatively, seal in the pan then transfer to the oven for 10-15 minutes until cooked.
  2. Meanwhile make up the stock with boiling water.
  3. Add the butter to the dish and fry the leeks and mushrooms for a few minutes until lightly golden then add the garlic and fry for another minute.
  4. Pour in the white wine and bubble for a minute then add the stock.
  5. Return the chicken pieces to the pan, season well with black pepper and allow to heat through. Pour over the cream and herbs and bubble gently for a few minutes until slightly thickened.
  6. Garnish with a few extra chopped herbs scattered over the top and serve with mashed potatoes, mashed sweet potatoes and steamed green vegetables.
