Chicken Chasseur

Chicken chasseur is a really tasty one pot dish and just great for cold winter days. Chicken thighs are usually cheaper than chicken breasts and work very well in a casserole. Serve with baked potatoes or pasta such as tagliatelle. If you don't want to use wine, double the quantity of stock instead.
