Contributed By: Admin
Serves: 4

The DVD edition of
The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring

4 boneless chicken thighs
2 garlic cloves, crushed
3/4 red wine
3 tbsp white wine vinegar
1 tbsp oil
1 tbsp butter
4 shallots
3 tbsp balsamic vinegar
2 tbsp fresh thyme
salt and pepper
cooked polenta or rice, to serve

1.  Make a few slashes in the skin of the chicken. Brush the chicken with the crushed garlic and place in a non-metallic dish.

2.  Pour the wine and white wine vinegar over the chicken and season to taste with a little salt and pepper. Cover and marinate in the refrigerator for as long as possible, preferably overnight.

3.  Carefully remove the chicken pieces with a slotted spoon, draining well, and reserve the marinade.

4.  Heat the oil and butter in a skillet, add the shallots and saute for 2-3 minutes, or until they begin to soften.
Add the chicken pieces to the skillet and cook for about 3-4 minutes, turning, until browned all over. Reduce the heat and add half the reserved marinade.

5.  Cover and cook for 15-20 minutes, adding more marinade when necessary.
Add the balsamic vinegar and thyme and cook for a further 4 minutes.

6.  Transfer to serving plates and serve with polenta or rice.
