Preheat the oven to 160°C / 325°F / Gas 3. Heat the oil and butter in a large flame proof
casserole and brown the chicken pieces on all sides.
Add the gammon strips, peeled onions, mushrooms and crushed garlic.
Pour over the brandy and set it alight. When the flames have subsided add the red wine, stock,
bouquet garni and seasoning. Cover and cook slowly for about 1 hour in the preheated oven.
Remove the chicken and keep warm. Thicken the sauce with the butter mixture and season to taste.
Cook for several minutes and replace the chicken. Sprinkle with chopped parsley and serve.
