Use a big dutch oven, pot or similar.


  • One or more chickens
  • 2/3 bottle wine
  • Juice of one lemon
  • Mushrooms
  • Onion - small ones whole, or cut up bigger ones.
  • A little sliced celery.
  • A few tomatoes
  • A handful of cloves of garlic.
  • Herbs, thyme, summer savoury.
  • A little water
  • Salt and pepper.


Place the chicken in the pot and add all of the above ingredients.

Cook over a low heat for 2 1/2 hours. Check it is done then let it cool for a couple of hours.

Remove chicken and vegetables from pan. Reduce the liquid to a fine rich sauce.

Slice chicken and arrange artfully on a platter with the vegetables which you warm in the sauce.

Spoon sauce over chicken and be the envy of the camp.
