Serves: 4
Prep time: 10 minutes
Cook time: 20 minutes

Ingredients

  • 80g plain flour
  • 8 boneless, skinless chicken thighs
  • Salt and black pepper
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 250g chestnut mushrooms, halved
  • 120ml white wine
  • 120ml chicken stock
  • 450g green beans, trimmed
  • Large knob of butter
To serve:
  • Chives, chopped
  • Roast potatoes

Instructions

1. Place the flour in a shallow bowl. Season the chicken with a little salt and pepper and coat with the flour, shaking off any excess.

2. Heat two tablespoons of the oil in a large pan over a medium-high heat. In batches, cook the chicken for 2-3 minutes per side until browned, then transfer to a plate.

3. Add the remaining oil to the same pan and cook the mushrooms, stirring, for 3-5 minutes until browned. Return the chicken to the pan. Add the wine and chicken stock and simmer for 8-10 minutes until cooked through.

4. Meanwhile, bring a saucepan of salted water to a boil and cook the green beans for 2-3 minutes until just tender, then drain. Return the beans to their pan, add a knob of butter and allow it to melt and coat the beans.

5. Sprinkle the chicken with chives and serve with the buttered green beans and some crispy roast potatoes.
