Ponem Fire a casserole with olive oil over medium high heat .

We clean the chicken of skins and fats. We pepper and flour lightly (a thin layer) and brown, in batches , in hot oil. As the pieces of chicken are frying, we reserve them separately.

In that same oil, we sauté the garlic cut into slices and the onion cut into small squares (brunoise). Add the rosemary twigs and the clean mushrooms and cut as we like, sauté a minute and add the pieces of chicken.

Water with the glass of wine and when the alcohol has evaporated, add the chicken broth . Let the chicken be done for 30 minutes on low heat. . If we see that the sauce does not have the desired thickness, let's throw out a spoonful of corn flour in water cold and add it to the stew, leaving to cook for a few more minutes.

Remove the rosemary branches, serve the chicken pieces with the mushrooms and sprinkled with the sauce. Sprinkle chopped parsley over .


I think it's important that the chicken is well browned on all sides , so that it is sealed and does not release the juices. For this reason it is essential that we do it in batches, without piling up.

I always take away your skin, because of the calories, but if you like it, good toast is delicious. In that case, add a little less oil, because the skin is very oily.

A good wine gives it aroma and flavor. When I have brandy I add it, because I love the touch it gives, although I have also done it with beer, cider and even champagne.

So that the sauce is more ligadita, from time to time give a back and forth motion to the casserole where it is cooked, in this way the sauce emulsifies.
