  • 1 cup red wine
  • 2 cups chicken bullion preferably homemade
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1 to mato
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 2 tbsp flour
  • 200 grams button mushrooms
  • ground black pepper

  • In a large pan, heat the oil.
  • Sprinkle the chicken with black pepper and salt, and place in the pan. Brown the chicken with skin on, let it cook for about 5 minutes then flip to the other side and let it brown. Transfer to a plate and set aside.
  • Leaving the oil in the pan, add the onions and sauté, then add the garlic. Sauté until garlic is aromatic and make sure to keep stirring as it can get burnt easily.

  • When chicken is cooked and tender, transfer it to a plate. Mash the butter with the flour, then add the paste along with the mushrooms to the sauce. Let it simmer on medium low heat for 10 minutes, the sauce should thicken and reduce.
  • Return chicken to the sauce to reheat it and coat with the sauce for a few minutes.
  • Serve warm with mashed or roasted potatoes.
