My Old Man's Superb Chicken - TastyPlanner.com
Bloomin’ Gorgeous. Chicken can be prepped and wrapped ahead of time.
170 grams mushrooms, any combination
2 lugs of olive oil
2 cloves of garlic, peeled and chopped
1 handful of fresh flat-leaf parsley, chopped
4 chicken breasts
1 500g pack of puff pastry
1 egg, beaten
2 heaped tablespoons wholegrain mustard
1 large wineglass of white wine
140 ml double cream
Preheat the oven to 200C/400F/gas 6. Chop up the mushrooms – half rough and half fine. To a hot pan, add a couple of lugs of olive oil and slowly fry the garlic with mushrooms for about 10 minutes. Season to taste and stir in the chopped parsley. Allow to cook. Pull back the chicken fillet on the breast and, keeping it intact, score into the breast and stuff the chicken with the cooled mushrooms.
Using a little dusting of flour and a rolling pin, roll the pastry out to around 45cm/18 inches in length, 20 cm/8 inches wide and just over 0.5cm/1/4 inch thick. Slice into 4 pieces, lengthways, and wrap around each chicken breast. Brush the pastry with a little egg, and cook in the preheated oven for 35 minutes. While the chicken is cooking, put the mustard and white wine into a hot pan and allow to reduce until you’ve cooked away the alcohol smell. Add the cream and simmer until the sauce coats the back of a spoon, then remove from the heat and season to taste. Slice each chicken breast into 3 and serve with a bit of sauce and a little drizzle of olive oil if you like.Serve with spring greens and new potatoes tossed in butter and chopped parsley.
