Southern Comfort Chicken

This is from the Scottish/English border region. To make it authentically British, you should use mead (if you can find it!) instead of Southern Comfort. But it's delicious either way.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat the oven to 375 F degrees.
  2. Fry the chicken joints in the oil and butter until browned.
  3. Put them aside in a casserole dish.
  4. Make a sauce by adding the chopped onion to the oil and butter in the pan and fry for 2-3 minutes.
  5. Add the mushrooms, parsley, lemon juice, Southern Comfort and seasonings.
  6. Stir well and cook for a further 3 minutes before pouring the sauce over the chicken joints.
  7. Cover and cook in the 375°F oven for about an hour.

This dish was a lot more oily than I like to serve and there wasn't much flavor. The chicken was very tender. If trying again I would pour off the oil before frying the onions and making the sauce.

This recipe is devoid of any flavor. There are no measurements for the seasoning (which it desperately needs) and cooking it for an hour at 375 AFTER sauteeing it is ludicrous. It's a waste of Southern Comfort - you'll need to drink a shot after tasting this garbage. DO NOT MAKE!

This was really really nice. I used 8 boneless, skinless chicken thighs. I'll definitely be making this again. The flavour is quite delicate in my opinion so I think I'll add more mushrooms and a little more sothern comfort. A great recipe!!
