Chicken with carrots cooked in Sauternes


You'll need

1 bunch each red heirloom carrots and golf ball carrots, trimmed, scrubbed 500 ml (2 cups) chicken stock 125 ml good-quality Sauternes 70 gm butter, coarsely chopped 2 thyme sprigs Juice of ½ lemon 80 ml (1/3 cup) olive oil 2 corn-fed boneless chicken thighs, skin on 1 bunch salsify (see note) ½ cup chickweed leaves and shoots (see note)

Method

  • 01
  • Place red and golf ball carrots in separate frying pans so they fit snugly in single layers. To each pan add half the stock, half the Sauternes, 15gm butter and a thyme sprig. Cover closely with a round of baking paper, bring to the simmer over medium heat and cook until carrots are half-cooked (10-15 minutes for red carrots; 20-25 minutes for golf ball carrots). Cool to room temperature, remove carrots with a slotted spoon and set aside. Combine cooking liquids and simmer over medium-high heat until syrupy (15-20 minutes). Add half the lemon juice, season to taste, set aside and keep warm.
  • 02
  • Preheat oven to 220C. Heat 1 tbsp olive oil in a frying pan over medium-high heat. Season chicken skin to taste with sea salt, place chicken skin-side down in pan, cover each piece with a small piece of baking paper and weight with a saucepan. Cook until skin is golden and crisp and chicken is cooked through (8-10 minutes; turn three-quarters of the way through cooking time). Remove from pan, thickly slice and keep warm.
  • 03
  • Spread carrots in a baking tray. Heat 1 tbsp olive oil and 20gm butter in a small saucepan, pour over carrots and season to taste. Roast, stirring occasionally, until browned (5 minutes). Keep warm.
  • 04
  • Blanch salsify until just tender (2-3 minutes; see cook’s notes p234), drain and pat dry. Heat 1 tbsp olive oil in a frying pan over medium-high heat, add salsify, stir occasionally until browned (1-2 minutes) and season to taste. Melt remaining butter in a saucepan, pour it over the carrots and season to taste with salt. Divide carrots, salsify and chicken among serving plates and drizzle with carrot cooking liquid. Toss chickweed in a bowl with remaining oil and lemon juice, scatter over plates and serve.
Note Salsify and chickweed are available from select greengrocers. If you can’t find chickweed, substitute young sorrel leaves.
