Stephen Auker (MrDenarii) Thrift Tips One-pot chicken chasseur to feed 6 people for less than £1 per person or for FREE if you use the receipts other shoppers have dropped and check the Asda Price Guarantee http://www.asdapriceguarantee.co.uk Can also be used with any other meats which might be in the reduced section of the supermarket. Ingredients: 1 tsp olive oil 25g butter pack chicken thighs & drumsticks 1 onion, chopped 1 garlic clove crushed 3 sliced mushrooms 250ml red wine Tin tomatoes 2 thyme sprigs or 4 bay leaves 500ml chicken stock Method Heat the oil and half the butter in a large lidded casserole. Season the chicken, then fry for about 5 mins on each side until golden brown. Remove and set aside. Melt the rest of the butter in the pan. Add the onion, then fry for about 5 mins until soft. Add some garlic, cook for about 1 min, add the mushrooms, cook for 2 mins, then add the wine. Stir in the can of chopped tomatoes, let the liquid bubble and reduce for about 5 mins, then stir in the thyme or bayleaf and pour over the stock. Slip the chicken back into the pan, then cover and simmer on a low heat for about 1+hr until the chicken is very tender. Remove the chicken from the pan and keep warm. Rapidly boil down the sauce for 10 mins or so until it is syrupy and the flavour has concentrated. Put the chicken legs back into the sauce and serve. Wandering around supermarket car parks looking for lost / dropped receipts is called 'Wombling' and I was featured on the Money Saving Expert website back in 2011 because I was raising £50 to £100 a month for my Cancer Research Charity. When Asda heard about this and was asked to comment - they were very supportive and didn't discourage the activity at all.
