To make this recipe you will need:

And here’s how to do it…

1. Season a handful of flour and lightly coat your chicken legs or thighs.

2. Heat up a good glug of oil in a saucepan and fry your chicken on both sides until golden brown.  Put them aside on a plate.  

3. Fry your onion, garlic, celery and leek in the pan until softened.  Add a knob of butter and the remaining seasoned flour left from coating your chicken.  

4. Fry for a few minutes, stirring regularly to make sure it doesn’t stick to the pan.  (If you wish to add a large glass of white wine and simmer until the liquid has reduced by half.)  

5. Add the chicken, a pint of chicken or vegetable stock, and the diced carrots. Bring to the boil, add the mixed herbs, cover and simmer for 30 minutes until the chicken is cooked through.

6. Serve in bowls with bread and butter.
