Chicken with calvados..

Calvados (French pronunciation: [kal.va.dos]) is an apple brandy from the French region of Lower Normandy (Basse-Normandie). It is sometimes abbreviated to Calva.

I browned my chicken thighs in oil then put them in the oven.

Sautéed off some onion, garlic, sliced mushrooms, oregano and lovage seed, then added a good splash of calvados, but white wine or brandy would work just as well, reduced it a little..

added the chicken and a splosh of cider just because I was drinking some at the time.

then I put it back in the oven while I was cooking the potatoes, the recipe for those is here. sautéed potatoes

and then served it with some vegetables.
