Ingredients

1 onions, finely chopped 200 g
2 carrots, cut into 3-4 mm thick rounds 200 g
8 button (white) mushrooms, quartered 110 g
1/2 cup white wine 125 mL
3 tbsp raisins 30 g
2 tbsp canola oil 30 mL
8 chicken drumsticks 900 g
1 1/2 cup canned tomatoes (diced) 380 g
2 tsp herbes de Provence 2 g
salt [optional]
ground pepper to taste [optional]

Before you start

Put the serving dish in the oven at the lowest setting to keep the chicken warm after its initial sautéing.

Method

  1. Prepare the vegetables : Finely chop the onion, slice the carrots into thin rounds (3-4 mm thick), cut the mushrooms into quarters. Pour the wine into a small bowl then soak the raisins. Set aside.
  2. Heat the oil in a pan over medium heat, then add the chicken drumsticks and sauté thoroughly on each side until golden, about 7-8 min. Take the chicken pieces out of the pan then set them aside on the warmed serving plate in the oven.
  3. Add the onion to the pan, then sauté 2-3 min. Add the carrots and mushrooms then cook 2-3 min. Add the raisins and wine. Scrape the bottom of the pan thoroughly as the wine comes to a boil.
  4. Put the chicken back into the pan, then add the diced tomatoes and herbes de Provence. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Cover, then simmer 20-25 min until the chicken is tender. Serve.

I used skinless chicken breast instead and it worked nice.

Over the past few years I have gotten out of the habit of cooking, this recipe was easy, very yummy, well worth the effort and doable on a budget, I will definitely make it again.

Absolutely delicious and it gives you an excellent opportunity to show off your ability to present a plate nicely...:) I ended up adding more mushrooms as I felt 4 tiny button mushrooms for 2 servings was definitely not enough. I also simmered the whole thing for 30 minutes as I prefer my meat really tender.
