Chicken with mushrooms and cumin (Angela Hartnett)

(serves 3-4)
3 tbsp olive oil
4 chicken thighs
4 chicken drumsticks
Pinch of rock salt and pepper
Large pinch of cumin seeds, crushed
300ml vegetable stock, or water
250g chestnut mushrooms, cleaned
2 tbsp flat-leaf parsley, chopped

Heat the oil on medium in a large lidded pan, season the chicken with salt and pepper and colour, uncovered, on both sides for about five minutes (you may need to do this in two batches).

When all of the chicken is browned, add the cumin seeds and toast in the pan.

Add the stock – or water – cover the pan and cook for 20 minutes.

Roughly chop the mushrooms and add them to the pan about five minutes before the chicken is cooked, and replace the lid.

Serve the chicken garnished with the parsley and with steamed cabbage or a green salad.
