Raymond Blanc Chicken Chasseur Recipe

Raymond Blanc Chicken Chasseur Recipe

Chicken chasseur, or hunter's chicken, is a classic French dish that is easy to make and full of flavor. It consists of chicken pieces braised in a sauce of white wine, tomatoes, mushrooms, and herbs. Raymond Blanc, the renowned French chef and restaurateur, has his own version of this dish that uses vinegar and garlic to add some tang and depth to the sauce. Here is how to make Raymond Blanc's chicken chasseur at home.


  • 4 organic or free range chicken drumsticks and thighs or a whole chicken cut into 10 pieces

  • 1 tbsp olive oil

  • 5 tbsp good-quality red wine vinegar

  • 15g unsalted butter

  • 100ml dry white wine

  • 4 garlic cloves, peeled but left whole

  • 1 ripe medium tomato, finely chopped

  • 2 sprigs fresh tarragon, chopped

  • 1 tbsp fresh flat-leaf parsley, roughly chopped

  • sea salt and freshly ground black pepper


  • Preheat the oven to 150C/300F/Gas Mark 2. On a high heat, in a large casserole, fry the chicken pieces in the olive oil for 5 minutes, until golden brown. Season with 4 pinches of salt and 2 pinches of pepper.

  • Add the vinegar and butter to the pan and bring to the boil. Reduce the heat and simmer for 10 minutes, turning the chicken pieces occasionally.

  • Add the wine, garlic, tomato, tarragon, and bay leaves to the pan and bring to the boil again. Cover the casserole with a lid and transfer to the oven. Cook for 40 minutes, or until the chicken is tender and cooked through.

  • Sprinkle with the parsley and serve with sautéed potatoes or mashed potatoes.
