Tourangelle Chicken

Bonjour! Poulet à la Tourangelle is a classic French dish that is both delicious and easy to prepare. Here is my version:


  • 1 whole chicken, cut into pieces
  • 2 onions, chopped
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 2 cups of mushrooms, sliced
  • 1 cup of white wine
  • 1 cup of chicken stock
  • 1 tablespoon of tomato paste
  • 1 tablespoon of all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons of olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon of butter
  • 1 bouquet garni (a bundle of herbs, typically including thyme, bay leaf, and parsley)
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).
  2. Season the chicken pieces with salt and pepper.
  3. In a large Dutch oven or oven-safe pot, heat the olive oil over medium-high heat. Brown the chicken pieces on all sides until golden brown, then remove them from the pot and set them aside.
  4. Add the onions and garlic to the pot and cook until softened and fragrant, about 3-4 minutes.
  5. Add the mushrooms and continue cooking until they have released their liquid and started to brown, about 5-7 minutes.
  6. Sprinkle the flour over the vegetables and stir well to combine. Cook for another 2-3 minutes, stirring constantly.
  7. Add the white wine and chicken stock to the pot and stir well to combine. Add the tomato paste and bouquet garni, then return the chicken pieces to the pot.
  8. Cover the pot with a lid and place it in the oven. Bake for 45 minutes, or until the chicken is cooked through and tender.
  9. Remove the pot from the oven and place it on the stove over medium-high heat. Add the butter to the pot and stir well to combine. Cook for another 5-10 minutes, or until the sauce has thickened and the chicken is coated in a rich, flavorful sauce.
  10. Serve the Poulet à la Tourangelle hot, garnished with fresh herbs if desired. Bon appétit! Stella
