1.5kg skinless, bone-in free range chicken thigh 2 cups red wine 6 baby white onions, outer skin removed 2 tbsp olive oil pinch flaky salt & freshly ground black pepper 200g button mushrooms, quartered 6 rashers streaky bacon 1 cube chicken stock dissolved in 1 cup water ¼ cup chopped Italian parsley + extra for garnish 6 slices wholegrain bread, toasted 6 tbsp Dijon mustard Season chicken thighs with salt and pepper and marinate in red wine for at least two hours in the fridge. Preheat oven to 180*C. Put baby onions in roasting tray with olive oil, salt and pepper and roast until tender (about 12 minutes). Heat a large ovenproof casserole dish and saute bacon in it until fat is rendered out. Remove bacon and chop into large pieces. Remove chicken thighs from marinade and brown in the casserole dish. Cook the chicken in batches to avoid stewing. Remove chicken, and saute mushrooms in the same dish for 2-3 minutes. Add the bacon, chicken, onions, red wine, stock and parsley. Cover and put in oven for 20 minutes. Remove lid and cook for a further 25 minutes. To serve: spread a generous amount of parsnip mash on each plate. Spoon over the coq au vin and garnish with chopped Italian parsley. Spread Dijon mustard on each slice of wholegrain toast, and serve alongside. Parsnip mash 6 parsnips 2 cups milk 50g butter Peel and roughly chop the parsnips. Put these into a saucepan and cover with milk and water. Bring to the boil, reduce heat and cook until tender (about 25 minutes). Drain, reserving the milk, and pass parsnip through a sieve. Gradually add the milk back into the mash while whisking, until you achieve a creamy consistency (you may not need all the milk). Add butter and mix well.
