Chicken and Red wine redux
I revisited my earlier post and cooked up another lot of red wine and chicken, and I wasn't disappointed. This is quite an image heavy post, so the rest is after the jump.
Chicken cut in half.
No bacon in this lot, and an addition of fennel tops, I missed the bacon.
Chicken in the roasting pan with potatoes in stead of sun-choke, I prefer the sun-choke. This also got the olives and an addition of capers.
Didn't have any foil, so improvised with a bit of baking paper.
Chicken out of the oven uncovered and ready to go back in. The sauce over-reduced a bit due to not having a tight seal with the paper, so I topped it up with a bit more red wine.
Fennel sliced and marinating in some lemon juice.
Beans being shocked after blanching.
Shallots ready to slice.
All mixed up with a simple French dressing.
The strained pan juices.
Plated and delicious.
