Hello there! Last week of August. seems like summer is almost over.. Even if the weather is still summery and warm, we have things to do that are bringing us back to reality, back to routine.
The sure thing is that cooking will make me feel a little better, I'm holding my spoons and knifes and waiting for winter to come!
Today I have a very flavorful and simple dish that I hope you will love. It's on the comfort side but I think we need it these days. I hope you'll like it!
3 tablespoons olive oil
500 g chicken thighs bone in
1 large onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic minced
1 package mushrooms approximately 15 to 20 mushrooms cut in half
1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
1 cup dry white wine
2 tomatoes, cut into pieces
1 tablespoon tarragon ( you can substitute with thyme curt or a Provençale mix )
1 cup chicken broth or water (you may need a little more)
Salt - Pepper
1 tablespoon mustard
1 packet broad noodles
How to make
Rinse and wipe dry the chicken thighs using a paper towel.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Place a dutch oven or any ovenproof pot over medium-high heat and add the olive oil. When the oil is hot add the chicken and let it develop a nice crust before turning over. When the chicken is golden brown on both sides remove it from the pot and set aside.
In the same pot, add the onion and when it’s soft add the garlic. Add salt and pepper, stir briefly and add the mushrooms.
Stir for 2-3 minutes and shift the flour. Stir for a moment or two and deglaze by adding the wine. Scrub all the little tiny bits of flavor stuck to the bottom of the pot and add the tomatoes and tarragon. Return the chicken to the pan, stir and add broth until the liquid reaches approximately the height of the ingredients. Stir, cover with lid and bake for 15 minutes, then remove the lid and continue baking for 10 more minutes until the sauce is thick and.. well saucy..
Meanwhile prepare the noodles by boiling them in water according to directions.
Add the mustard to the pot with the chicken, stir to combine all together and finally add the noodles. You’re ready to serve!!
