Rate & Comment on this this Recipe
- Position a rack in the centre of the oven and preheat the oven to 230°C.
- Whisk the olive oil, lemon juice, vinegar, and ½ tablespoon of the minced garlic in a large shallow bowl. Add the chicken pieces and turn to coat. Cover and allow to sit at room temperature, turning occasionally, for 30 minutes.
- Put the chicken skin side up on a rack set over a large rimmed baking sheet (reserve the marinade). Season well with salt and pepper. Cook for 10 minutes, lower the heat to 190°C, and continue cooking until the skin is a deep golden colour and the meat is cooked through (about 30 minutes more)
- Meanwhile, melt the butter in a 23cm heavy-duty skillet over medium heat. Add the reserved marinade and the shallots. Cook, stirring, until tender and lightly browned (about 4 minutes).
- Add the chanterelles and cook, stirring frequently, until tender and golden-brown on some sides, about 3 minutes. Add the remaining garlic and cook, stirring, until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add the wine and simmer for 1 minute. Remove from the heat. Set aside ½ cup of the mushrooms and cover to keep warm.
- Transfer the chicken to a plate, reserving the juice in the baking sheet and scraping up any browned bits. Put the skillet with the mushroom mixture over medium-high heat and add the chicken drippings, cream, peas, ¾ teaspoon salt, and ½ teaspoon pepper. Cook until thickened to a sauce consistency, about 2 minutes.
- Remove from the heat, add 2 teaspoons of chopped tarragon, and season to taste with salt and pepper.
- Divide the sauce among four shallow bowls and top with the chicken. Sprinkle with the reserved mushrooms and the remaining tarragon, and serve.
