Coq au Vin Parcels

Description: Description: Meal in one

Although these take a little time to assemble, the elegant end result is well worth the extra effort.

Hands-on time 20 min. cooking time about 45 min. serves 4

·         500g (1bl 2oz) new potatoes, sliced into thin rounds

·         200g (7oz) button mushrooms, halved

·         4 shallots, finely sliced

·         4 skinless chicken breasts

·         200ml (7fl oz) white wine

·         150ml (5fl oz) double cream

·         11/2 – 2tbsp wholegrain mustard, to taste

·         Small handful fresh parsley, finely chopped

  1. Preheat oven to 2000C (1800C fan) mark 6. Cut out eight 30.5cm x 48cm (12in x 19in) rectangles of oil.
  2. Stack two foil rectangles on top of each other and lay them flat. Make a pile on one side of the rectangle with a quarter each of the potatoes, mushrooms and shallots. Top with a chicken breast, season well, then fold the remaining foil over the top. Seal two of the edges byfolding each over twice, then carefully pour in a quarter of the wine through the open section. Seal the final side, then place the parcel flat on a baking tray. Repeat with the remaining foil, fillings and wine, as before (you may need to use two trays).
  3. Cook the parcels in the oven for 45 min, or until the chicken feels firm when pressed through the foil.
  4. When chicken is cooked heat the cream and mustard together in a small pan until boiling, then transfer to a jug (if you like your sauce a little thinner, add a little boiling water). Put the parsley in small bowl. Slide the unopened chicken parcels on to plates, serve with the cream sauce and parley and let everyone carefully open their own parcel and help themselves.
