this is a largely improvised dish, trying to use some good principles of cooking. And to improve my knowledge of principles I would like to ask some general advice.
I have five chicken drumsticks and some orange juice and I want to incorporate them with either wine or Brandy.
My first feeling is to brown the chicken legs in butter and a little olive oil +S&P.
I would like to incorporate onions and a touch of garlic.
After removing the chicken I would sauté the onions and a pinch of garlic intill soft.
I could then pour in 50% of my liquid which would be either white wine, or some brandy . If I use both how could this be done or is it not recommended?
After reduction of some of the alcohol I would place the chicken legs back in and pour the orange juice in with slices of ginger and dry tarragon stirring a little to mix .
Then it would go into the oven and cook at 350 or 375 for about 45 or 50 minutes. uncovered.
Rice of course would accompany it .
What do you think?
and thank's to all.
