READY IN: 50mins




  • Heat the oil in a heavy-based heat-proof casserole, add the garlic and cook for 2-3 minutes or until golden, then discard the garlic.
  • Dust the chicken in seasoned flour and shake away the excess, then cook in the oil over medium heat until light golden all over-this will need to be done in a couple of batches.
  • Remove all from the pan.
  • Add the onion and cook for 8-10 minutes, or until almost soft.
  • Add the wine, bay leaf rosemary and vinegar and boil for 2 minutes.
  • Add the stock, then return the chicken to the pan and bring to the boil, then cover and simmer gently, turning once, for 15-20 minutes or until the chicken is tender.
  • Remove the chicken from the pan and keep warm.
  • Add the sugar, currants and olives to pan and simmer for 5 minutes or until the sauce is syrupy.
  • Return the chicken to the pan and stir in the parsley and pine nuts and serve immediately.
