4 servings

  • 2 1/2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken thighs and breasts
  • 1/2 bottle dry white wine
  • 2 pounds baby Yukon gold potatoes
  • Salt
  • 1/2 cup cream
  • 1 Golden Delicious apple, peeled, cored and chopped
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, plus a drizzle
  • 4 slices deli-cut bacon or thick cut pancetta, chopped
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • Flour, for dredging plus 2 tablespoons
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 2 ribs celery, chopped
  • 2 carrots, chopped or 1 cup shredded carrot
  • 1 bay leaf
  • A few sprigs thyme, stripped and leaves chopped
  • 1/3 pound wedge brie, cut into pieces
  • Crusty, warm bread

In a large bowl, add the chicken, cover with wine, and set aside.

Quarter the potatoes, leaving the skin-on. Place in a large pot, cover with water and bring up to a boil over medium heat. When the potatoes are cooked, drain and place in a medium bowl. Mash the potatoes, season with salt and set aside.

In a small pot, combine apple and cream and reduce over medium heat 15 minutes.

Drizzle olive oil in a large skillet over medium high heat, add the bacon and crisp 3 to 4 minutes. Remove to a plate.

While bacon crisps, remove the chicken to a work surface, reserving the wine. Cut chicken into large bite-size pieces, season with salt and pepper, dredge in flour then brown in bacon drippings. While chicken browns chop vegetables. Remove the chicken to a plate, then add 2 tablespoons olive oil to the skillet, season the vegetables with salt and pepper and add bay leaf and thyme. Cover pan to sweat vegetables 5 minutes then remove lid, stir in 2 tablespoons flour, cook 1 minute then stir in wine, add chicken back to pan and simmer together to thicken and the chicken is cooked through, a couple of minutes more.

To a food processor, add the apple-cream and brie, process until smooth and season with salt. Combine apple-brie mixture with the mashed potatoes.

Serve chicken with wine over brie mashed potatoes.
