How to make Chicken chasseur

Hi everyone in this post I will be telling you how to make Chicken Chasseur. However you may ask what does Chicken Chasseur mean well the Sauce chasseur, which is sometimes called "hunter's sauce", is a simple or compound brown sauce used in French cuisine. It is typically made using demi-glace or an espagnole sauce as a base, and often includes mushrooms and shallots. It may also include tomatoes and a finishing of fines herbs.This recipe that I will be telling you how to make will make 4 portions.

  • Butter                           50g
  • Chicken, 1 1/4-1 1/2 Kg, cut for sauté
  • shallots, chopped           10g

  • dry white wine               3 tbsp.
  • reduced brown stock      250ml
  • tomatoes concassee       200g
