No doubts: any chicken leg recipe is just plain boring.
It’s what you put into your meals that make them interesting! Whether that’s a special ingredient or setting up a special romantic evening with your significant other.
Or maybe…..you’ll just have an evening like I have with my Chef! :P
6 chicken legs
5-6 medium mushrooms
2 medium onions
1 clove of garlic Chopped
100 ml sour cream
1 tablespoon flour
3 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons oil
organic cane sugar to taste
thyme to taste
2 tablespoons fresh, chopped parsley
salt and pepper to taste
Wash the chicken legs thoroughly. Dry with paper towels. Place the legs on a plate or in a bowl.
Sprinkle them with, salt, pepper, organic cane sugar and thyme. The sugar is the special ingredient that will give the chicken a sweetness and crispy skin.
Then roll the seasoned legs in the flour.
In a saucepan melt the 2 tablespoons of oil in a skillet over medium to high heat.
Add the legs and saute them until they’re light golden brown.
Pour in a few tablespoons of water. Cover and simmer over low heat for an 1 hour.
Peel and wash the onions. Cut them into cubes. Add the garlic.
Wash and dry the mushrooms. Cut into thick slices.
In a pan melt some of the butter over medium heat.
Add the onions.
Saute for about 10 minutes until they’re a light golden colour.
Add the sliced mushrooms.
Continue cooking for about 5 more minutes. Then add 1½ cups of water and bring to a boil.
In a bowl add the flour.
To this add the sour cream.
Mix everything well using a spoon. Next pour the entire onions and mushroom sauce into the mixture.
Once everything is well mixed, pour everything back into the pan.
Add a little salt and pepper to taste. Continue cooking over medium heat for 1 to 2 minutes.
When done sprinkle with plenty of chopped parsley into the sauce.
Serve our chicken leg recipe with green garden salad and mashed potatoes.
Place the chicken and potatoes on a serving plate. Then pour over the mushroom sauce in the desired amount.
Sprinkle with more parsley if you like!
Meals with me and my Chef are never boring...trust me!!
