Course: Main Course
Cuisine: French
Servings: 6 people
Author: Tastefully Vikkie
  • Frylight
  • 1.5 kg Chicken breasts (skinless & boneless) Each cut in to 3 pieces (or smaller if you wish)
  • 40 g Basic porridge oats Equivalent of 1 person's HE B
  • Salt & Pepper
  • 2 Red wine stock pots (I used Tesco's)
  • 500ml Water (FOR PRESSURE COOKERS) or 700ml ON THE HOB
  • 1 Chicken stock cube
  • 3 Carrots Peeled & sliced
  • 2 Celery stick sliced
  • 20 Shallots / baby onions Placed in boiled water for easy peeling
  • 1 Bouquet garni I used 1 sachet from Schwartz.
  • 200 g Bacon medallions (fat trimmed) Sliced
  • 400 g Button mushrooms left whole
  • Fresh parsley to garnish
  1. Spray a deep saucepan with frylight and sear all sides of the chicken until golden.  you may need to do this in batches and set aside.  Pour any chicken juices in to the stock.

  2. Spray the pan with frylight again and fry the sliced bacon until cooked and set aside with the chicken.

  3. Spray the pan once more and saute all the vegetables for 5-6 minutes, until the onions are starting to look tender.

  4. Add the chicken and bacon back to the pan and add the remaining ingredients except the parsley and bring to the boil, then low the heat to a simmer before placing the lid on and cooking for a further 30 minutes.

    PRESSURE COOKERS/ MULTICOOKERS:  Cook for 10 minutes on Pressure Cooking setting.  Normally I cook mine on the hob, but on this occasion, I used my Tefal Cook4Me Connect.

  5. Once cooked, remove the bouquet garni, serve with mashed potatoes and garnish with fresh parsley and enjoy!
