Bob Marshall's Note:
An easy, tasty, braised chicken dish. One pot meal. Use a gourmet bottled mustard (e.g., maple champagne mustard)

Units: US | Metric
- 1 lb chicken thigh, skin on and bone in (four pieces)
- salt & pepper
- 1 carrot, cut in 1/4 inch dice
- 2 stalks celery, cut in 1/4 inch dice
- 1 sweet onion, cut in 1/4 inch dice
- 4 garlic cloves, minced
- 8 button mushrooms, sliced
- 1 cup dry sherry
- 1 bay leaf
- 3 tablespoons mustard
- 1 1/2 cups vegetable stock (Vegetable Stock)
- 1 tablespoon cornstarch
- 3 tablespoons sour cream
- 1Salt and pepper skin side of chicken thighs. Heat a heavy stainless steal pan, reduce heat to medium and put in chicken skin side down to brown and render chicken fat. Chicken will stick at first, do not touch as skin browns and fat renders chicken will free itself. Salt and pepper meat side of chicken. Turn over and brown meat side.
- 2Remove chicken from pan and set aside under foil. Add carrots, celery, onion, mushrooms and garlic to pan, salt & pepper to taste and saute until softened (5-7 minutes).

- 5Return chicken to pan skin side up. Add broth sufficient to cover chicken two-thirds. Bring to boil, cover reduce heat and simmer 45 minutes until chicken is fall off the bone tender.
- 6Mean while make a slurry with corn starch. When chicken is done, uncover and stir in just enough of slurry to slightly thicken sauce till it coats a spoon. Cook one to two minutes so starch looses raw taste.
