You can cook along with us or just sit back and enjoy the fun.

This is a perfect dish to cook ahead: simple; one pan so not much washing up; freezes well; good for colder weather.

All you need is:

3 onions peeled and diced

5 cloves garlic, peeled and finely chopped

1 tablespoon olive oil

1 knob butter

10 (1kg) chicken thighs, skinned

1 large glass dry white wine

1 lemon, zest and juice.

2 chicken stock cubes

1 tablespoon fresh French tarragon leaves, chopped

3 heaped teaspoons cornflour

Salt and pepper to taste.

A large lidded pan that can be used on the stove top and in the oven – I use a cast-iron pan.

 

Next time in November, we will be making Christmas puddings.   If you get the chance, start soaking the raisins, currants and sultanas in some brandy, port or sherry.   Details to follow.
