Chicken and White Wine

Two dinners in one!

As you know I’m all about cutting down on the work with food and food preparation but without compromising on taste and flavour. These two dinners are easy peasy and tasty for midweek meal!


  • 10 Chicken fillets cut into strips
  • 2 punnets of button mushrooms
  • Seasoned flour
  • 2 chopped onions
  • 4 cloves of garlic
  • 1 tbsp. of chopped thyme
  • 2 glasses of white wine (average glasses not the glasses you might tell yourself you only had one of!!)
  • 250mls of chicken stock


Cover the strips of chicken with the seasoned flour and fry them off in batches in oil in a pan. As your frying put the fried chicken into a casserole pot.

When the chicken is all fried add some oil to the frying pan again and fry the onion and the mushrooms and add the garlic and the thyme to this.

Then add this to the casserole. Turn on the heat under the casserole pot and put in the white wine and the chicken stock and allow to simmer for 15 minutes.  This is a big batch so serve half with potatoes and vegetables and keep the second half for tomorrow.

Cook about 300g of pasta (fusilli or penne) When cooked rinse with cold water to rinse away the starch. Slowly reheat your chicken leftovers and add about 200mls of cream to it. Once heated through mix in the pasta and sprinkle with some cheese on top and pop into a preheated oven at 180° c for about 15 minutes and voila. Two easy dinners.
