How to Make Mustard And Tomato Chicken Stew
Start this recipe by preheating the oven to 400°F/200°C. Then you will cut the top off the head of garlic. Rub it with some cooking fat and sprinkle with a pinch of salt and pepper. Wrap this in a piece of aluminum foil, then put it into the oven and roast for 45 minutes. It is ready when the garlic cloves are soft and easy to mash.
Heat a large oven-proof skillet with a lid over medium heat. Brown the chicken pieces on all sides in 2 tablespoons of cooking fat for a few minutes on each side. Then, reduce the heat to low.
Stir in the drained tomatoes, 1 ½ teaspoons dried thyme, 2 bay leaves, a pinch of chili powder, and ⅓ cup white wine into the skillet. Season with 1 teaspoon sea salt and ½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper. Bring to a boil and then reduce the heat to a simmer, covered, for about 40 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Add ¼ cup mustard and combine well. Bring to a boil and continue cooking for about 10 minutes, until the sauce is thickened. Adjust seasoning with more salt and pepper, if needed.
Squeeze out the roasted garlic into a bowl. Season with ¼ teaspoon each of sea salt and freshly ground black pepper. Stir to combine. Serve the chicken stew with the roasted garlic on the side.
