    1. 1
      Season the flour with salt and black pepper, scatter on a plate and use to coat the chicken pieces. Now heat the butter and oil in a pan ( big enough to hold the chicken and with some depth ) until foaming then add the vegetables and cook gently for 5 minutes. Remove with a slotted spoon and set aside.
    2. 2
      Add the chicken pieces to the pan and brown on all sides (add a little more oil, if necessary).
    3. 3
      Add the sauteed vegetables, ale, garlic, bouquet garni and season to taste. Bring to a simmer, cover and cook for 60 minutes over low heat, stirring occasionally. Half way through cooking taste broth and adjust seasonings to taste.
    4. 4
      To serve, transfer the chicken and vegetables to a warmed serving dish. Bring the juices in the casserole to a boil then take off the heat and stir in the cream to thicken. Pour over the chicken pieces and serve.
    5. 5
    6. 6
      Substitute 1 bay leaf, 1-2 tsp of dried thyme, and some fresh parsley for the bouquet garni, though best with fresh herbs.

      Delicious! I replaced the chicken with Pheasant and used just the breast meat. The meat was moist and tender. I used the dried herbs and threw in about 3 mushrooms that I needed to use up. There is plenty of sauce to go over your side dish if you want it. I served mine with poppy seed noodles and rye bread. Yummy! Thanks for posting. :)

      We really enjoyed this wonderful chicken recipe. I made it exactly as posted and used the fresh bouquet garni and half-and-half. I served it with boiled potatoes and brown raisin cake (Dutch Quick Bread). Made for ZWT 6.
