Chicken with mushrooms


  • 4 chicken quarters
  • dried oregano and ground paprika, for seasoning
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon plain flour
  • 425 g (14 oz) closed cup mushrooms, quartered
  • 300 ml (1/2 pint) chicken stock
  • 1/2 onion, grated
  • 1 green pepper, cored, seeded and cut into fine strips
  • 150 ml (1/4 pint) double cream
  • 50 ml (2 fl oz) Cognac
  • cayenne pepper (optional)
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper

1. Season the chicken quarters with salt, pepper, oregano and paprika to taste. Heat the oil in a saucepan. Add the chicken and cook until golden brown on all sides. Remove with a slotted spoon. Add the flour and mushrooms and cook for 1-2 minutes. Stir in the chicken stock, onion and green pepper. Return the chicken to the pan. Cover, simmer, over a low heat, for about 30 minutes, until the chicken is tender, stirring occasionally.

2. About 10 minutes before the end of the cooking time stir in the cream and Cognac. Season to taste with a little more salt and cayenne, if liked. Serve immediately.
