Coq Au Reisling

I tried this recipe from Nigella Lawson's cook book - LOVE. LOVE. LOVE. Not the healthiest but if you need cheering up on a cold, overcast day - this is the dish to eat.

  • 1 cup bacon diced (I used about 1/3c)
  • 1 leek, finely sliced
  • 12 skinless chicken thighs or 2 3/4 pounds thigh fillets
  • bay leaves
  • 10 ounces oyster mushrooms torn into strips about 4 c (I like using a more hearty mushroom such baby Portabella)
  • 1 bottle Riesling.
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • Buttered noodles, optional
Heat the oil in a casserole or large wide pan and fry the bacon until crispAdd the sliced leeks and soften them for a minute or so. Tip in the chicken thighs, bay leaves, torn mushrooms and wine. Season with salt and pepper and bring to the boil, cover the pan and simmer gently for an hour.
