Sautéed chicken with wine and morel mushrooms
A simple chicken dinner that is perfect for a midweek pick-me-up.
Season the flour with salt and pepper and then dust the chicken pieces with the seasoned flour. Preheat the oven to 200C/180C Fan/Gas 6.
Heat the oil in a heavy-based ovenproof pan. Fry the chicken pieces skin-side down until golden. Add the mushrooms and garlic. Add the wine and stir to mix with any sediment at the bottom of the pan. Add the stock and simmer for a couple of minutes. Add half of the cream. Place the pan in the oven for 20–30 minutes. Check that the chicken has cooked through with no traces of pink. Check the consistency of the sauce and add the rest of the cream if desired.
Heat the butter in a lidded frying pan. Add the cabbage and wild garlic with a splash of water. Put a lid on the pan. Cook for 1–2 minutes until just wilted and season with salt and pepper.
Cook the noodles in a saucepan of boiling water until tender. Drain, add the knob of butter and season with salt and pepper. Place the cabbage, wild garlic and noodles on warmed plates. Ladle the chicken and sauce on the side and serve immediately.
