Chicken Poulet Au Vinaigre recipe

It's a mystery why this dish isn't better known. The combination of tomato, vinegar and cream may seem odd but it really works. The result is both creamy and tart.


30g unsalted butter, for sautéing
12 chicken joints
3 shallots, finely chopped
6 large cloves garlic, unpeeled
6 tablespoons white-wine vinegar
325ml dry white wine
150ml chicken stock
3 tablespoons brandy
3 teaspoons Dijon mustard
1½ teaspoons tomato purée
100ml double cream
50g cold butter, cut into little cubes
3 large plum tomatoes, skinned and deseeded, the flesh cut into strips
Boiled waxy potatoes, to serve
