Ingredients

For the stew

 

6oz bacon, cut into 1/4” pieces

1/4 cup plain flour

2lbs chicken, I used a mix of thighs, legs & drumsticks

salt & pepper

1 1/2 lb mixed mushrooms

1 onion chopped

6 garlic cloves, chopped

1/4 cup dry white wine

3 tsp thyme

2 bay leaves

3pints chicken broth

 

For the dumplings

 

1/4tsp salt & black pepper

1 cup plain flour

2 tsp baking powder

2 eggs

1/4 cup milk

 

Method

 

Start by crisping the bacon in a pan, then transfer to paper towel.

Place flour in a shallow bowl. Season chicken with salt and pepper and dredge in flour. Working in batches, cook chicken, skin side down, in same pan used for the bacon over medium heat until deep golden brown and crisp (do not turn), 12–15 minutes. Transfer to a plate.

Working in 2 batches, cook mushrooms in same pan, seasoning with salt and pepper and stirring occasionally, until brown, 5–8 minutes. Transfer to a bowl. Add onion and garlic to pan, cook, stirring occasionally, until onion is soft and translucent, 5–8 minutes.

Add wine to pot, simmer until reduced by half, about 5 minutes. Add chicken, bacon, thyme, bay leaves, and broth, season with salt and pepper. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, and gently simmer, partially covered, until chicken is falling off the bone, 2–2 1/2 hours. Add mushrooms and simmer, 10–15 minutes; season with salt and pepper.

Make the dumplings

Whisk flour, baking powder, pepper & salt in a medium bowl. Whisk in eggs and milk (batter will be slightly lumpy), if it’s too runny add a little more flour. Put spoonfuls of batter into the stew & cook for a further 10 – 15 minutes.

Serve with mashed potato
