Add the mushrooms and sauté.

Turn the meat, deglaze with white wine and broth, add butter and thyme.

Put the pan without lid in the oven.

Pour the sauce over the meat several times during the 35 minutes cooking time.

Carefully add salt to the chicken pieces about 10 minutes before the end of the cooking time.

cook vegetables

Peel the carrots and cut them into 1 mm thin, diagonal slices. Place the carrot slices in a wide pot.

Cut the broccoli into florets, make a cross-shaped incision in the stalk and place with the carrots.

Cut the ends off the zucchini, halve lengthwise, cut out the core and cut into 5 mm pieces.

Cut the celery into 5 mm thick pieces, place the zucchini and celery in the pot.

Season the vegetables with salt, pour boiling water over them and cook for 8-10 minutes at high heat with lid until firm to the bite.

Carefully pour off the vegetables, foam the butter in the pot and season with salt, pepper, chilli and nutmeg. Put the vegetables in the pot and prepare them for serving.

Heat the plate and prepare.

5. Best Tips for Chicken with Vegetables

Tip on celery stalks:

In starred restaurants, we peeled the celery on the top. This makes it easy to remove the hard fibres. I don’t do this at home, I prefer to leave the fibre on the vegetable.

Tip for preparing tofu:

With this variation, you can reverse the preparation! First prepare the vegetables, then slice the tofu and fry it in the pan. Arrange the vegetables and glaze the tofu briefly with soy sauce and serve quickly on the plate.

Tip for more gourmet food:

You can add wild garlic pesto to this dish in spring and basil pesto in summer and decorate the cold sauces sparingly on the plate before serving. A trendy new pesto variant is carrot green pesto.
