For 4 as a main course:

1 x 3½ Chicken, free-range if possible - or 4 pre-cut leg & thigh portions

2 tablespoons Vegetable Oil

2 oz/60mg Butter

2 tablespoons (30ml) Flour

Salt and freshly-ground Black Pepper

2 medium Onions, peeled and sliced - Spanish are best for this dish, as they're mild

1 clove Garlic, peeled and chopped

2 teaspoons (10ml) Ground Paprika

2 tablespoons (30ml) Tomato Purée

½ pint/300ml Dry White Wine

½ pint/300ml Chicken Stock

1 tablespoon (15ml) freshly-chopped Parsley

1 pinch dried Thyme

8 fl oz/225ml Soured Cream + the same again if wanting to have some to drizzle over when serving


- Cut the chicken into joints or use bought portions.

- Season the flour with a little salt and pepper, then roll the chicken pieces in this - shacking off any excess - but keep it aside.

- Fry the chicken pieces in a deep frying pan - using a mixture of the butter and oil, until they are brown all over.

- Transfer the chicken to a casserole, leaving behind as much fat as possible.

- Gently the sliced onions over a low heat until they are soft but not brown; add the garlic need the end.

- Stir in the paprika and any flour left over from coating the chicken.

- Stir in the tomato puréeand mix until you have a smooth paste. Blend in the first batch of soured cream.

- Add the wine and stock, mix well together, and bring to the boil.

- Pour the sauce over the chicken pieces, then add the parsley, thyme and a little more salt and pepper.

- Return to a simmer, and cook for 4 minutes or until the chicken is tender.

Serve, with a more soured cream on top - if you have some.
