3 tbsp olive oil 45 mL
4 chicken legs, with back, skinless 1.2 kg
1 pinch salt [optional] 0.2 g
ground pepper to taste [optional]
1 onions, finely chopped 200 g
4 cloves garlic, minced
2 tsp dried oregano 1 g
1 1/2 cup white wine 375 mL
1/2 cup chicken broth 125 mL
4 carrots, cut into pieces 400 g
12 small potatoes 550 g

2 tbsp Dijon mustard 30 g
2 tbsp Cognac, or brandy 30 mL
4 tsp cornstarch 10 g

Before you start

Keep the serving plates in the oven at the lowest setting so they are warm when you serve.


  1. Heat the oil in a large pan or in a Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Working in batches, add the chicken pieces and sauté thoroughly on each side until they are golden-coloured, about 10 min. Season with salt and pepper, then transfer the pieces to a plate and keep them warm.
  2. Add the onion and garlic to the pan then sauté until softened, 2-3 min. Add some additional oil if necessary. Add the oregano and cook one more minute, with stirring. Pour in the wine and broth, then stir and scrape the bottom of the pan thoroughly. Put the chicken back into the pan, cover and simmer, basting occasionally with the pan juices, until the meat is nearly tender, 25 to 30 min.
  3. Add the carrots and small potatoes. Add salt and pepper to taste. Continue cooking, covered, until the vegetables are tender, 15 to 20 min.
  4. Add the mushrooms then cook an additional 3-4 min. Using a slotted spoon, move the chicken and vegetables to a platter then keep warm. Whisk the mustard and Cognac into the remaining cooking juices, then bring to a boil.
  5. Put the cornstarch in a small cup, add 2-3 spoonfuls of sauce then mix well. Whisk this mixture slowly into the pan to slightly thicken the sauce. Adjust the seasoning. Return the chicken and vegetables to the pan and stir to coat them with the sauce. Serve immediately on the warmed plates.
