Chicken and Wine Stew

This is very simple, I suppose you could make this with rabbit too but I like those furry creatures to much to be able to eat them unless I have no other choice and besides, rabbit is always dry…. all this lean meat… no fat in them… no good if you haven’t got a bit of fat on you.


Lett’s get going.

First you get your chicken (I got some chicken drums) and sprinkle that with sweet paprika and some salt.

and add that to the pan. Be generous but not overindulgent.

Then while that gets going for a bit, peel a few potatoes and cut them into “one bite size” and add them to the pan:

(you’ve got to be quick with the mixig, you don’t want the flour to turn brown)

Then get a couple of huge spoons of red wine or 30 or 40% of a glass of red wine and pour that in the pan.

Then you add a bit of water:

Mix it all and cook.  I used my magic pan and that took about 8 minutes.  If you don’t have a magic pan, put the lid on your pan and go and dye your hair or do something…
