What To Do:

  1. On a large plate roll the chicken pieces in the seasoned flour, making sure they are well coated all over.
  2. Heat the olive oil in a large flameproof casserole or large saucepan with a lid. Fry the chicken pieces a few at a time until they are golden brown all over, transferring to a plate whilst you cook the remaining pieces.
  3. When the chicken has all been fried, turn the heat down and add the leeks and Chantenay. Fry for a couple of minutes, then return the chicken to the pan, along with the herbs and garlic.
  4. Add the stock, bring up to the boil then cover with the lid. Reduce the heat and simmer gently for around and hour and a half, or until the chicken is just starting to fall off the bone. If the sauce is a little thin remove the lid for the final 30 minutes of cooking to allow it to thicken slightly.
  5. Serve with crusty bread, mashed potato or couscous.
