Ingredients needed to make Braised Chicken With Chorizo And Celeriac Mash:

For the chicken:

  • 8 oz chorizo, cubed
  • 4 whole chicken legs
  • 2 tbsp all purpose flour
  • 3 tbsp double cream
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 heaping tsp Dijon mustard
  • ¼ pint chicken stock
  • 1 pint dry cider
  • 6 shallots, peeled and finely chopped
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

  • 2 tbsp single cream
  • 1 oz butter
  • Freshly squeezed out lemon juice
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

Cooking instructions for Braised Chicken With Chorizo And Celeriac Mash:

  • To cook the chicken, warm up your oven to 375 degrees F and drizzle oil in a large, ovenproof skillet.
  • Once it heats up, throw in the chicken legs and brown them for about 10-12 minutes, flipping them over from time to time, so that they sear evenly; drain them out into a bowl, using slotted spoon and set aside.
  • Dump the shallots and diced chorizo into the same skillet and sauté for about 5 minutes, stirring often, until the juices run clear and they soften.
  • Dust with flour and give it a nice stir to coat well.
  • Add a splash of cider, followed right away by the stock and cook, while stirring regularly, until it begins to boil and thickens to some extent.
  • Spoon in the mustard and stir it into the mixture along with a dash of salt and black pepper to season.
  • Dump the chicken back to the skillet and stir to coat well with the simmering sauce.
  • Wrap the surface with a sheet of aluminum foil and roast in the oven for 35-40 mins or until the meat is cooked through and the juices run clear.
  • Meanwhile, to make the celeriac mash, throw in the chopped celeriac into a clean saucepan and fill it up with water.
  • Stir in a splash of lemon juice and boil the mixture over moderately high heat.
  • Reduce it to a simmer and cook, covered, for about 15 minutes or until it softens.
  • Drain them out through a colander and return the celeriac back to the saucepan.
  • Add a dollop of butter, followed by the cream and mash them into a smooth blend while cooking it over slow flame.
  • Adjust the seasonings and remove from heat.
  • Once the chicken is braised, whisk the double cream into the cooking liquid and transfer the chicken pieces into serving plates.
  • Spoon the cooking liquid over them and serve alongside the celeriac mash.
