  • 4 chicken pieces, about 175 g(6 oz) each
  • 4 tablespoons brandy
  • 250 g (8 oz) button onions, peeled
  • 900 ml (1½ pints) Chicken Stock
  • 250 g (8 oz) button mushrooms
  • Chopped fresh parsley, to garnish


  • 1 garlic clove, crushed
  • 150 ml (¼ pint) red wine vinegar
  • 150 ml (½ pint) red wine
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • Salt and pepper


1 Combine all the marinade ingredients. Place the chicken in a large shallow bowl and pour over the marinade. Set aside in a cool place for at least 3 hours, turning occasionally.

2 Preheat the grill to high. Drain the chicken, reserving the marinade, and brown briefly under the grill. Transfer the pieces to a casserole.

3 Pour the brandy over the chicken and ignite. When the flames die down add the onions and stock. Cover and cook in the preheated oven, 220°C (425°F), Gas Mark 7, for 50 minutes.

4 Add the mushrooms and cook for 10 minutes, or until the chicken is tender and the juices run clear when pierced on the thickest part.

5 Meanwhile, pour the reserved marinade into a saucepan and boil rapidly, uncovered, until reduced by half. Stir into the casserole. Garnish with the chopped parsley and serve at once.
