Before you start

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


  1. Cut the meat into small 1 cm cubes. Prepare the vegetables : Finely chop the onion and garlic; cut the potatoes and celery into 1 cm thick pieces.
  2. Heat half of the margarine and oil in a thick-bottom frying pan over medium heat. Add the onion and garlic, sauté 3-4 min until translucent, then remove them and set aside.
  3. In the same pan, add the cubes of chicken and sear them over high heat 4-5 min until golden-brown.
  4. Add the remaining margarine and oil to the pan. Stir in the potatoes and celery, then sauté a few minutes. Pour in the broth, then deglaze. Put the onion and garlic back into the pan. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Cook, covered, over low heat 20-25 min, until the potatoes are soft.
  5. Add the peas and cook an additional 3 min. Sprinkle with the chopped parsley (optional) and serve in the warmed dishes.
