  • Preheat the oven to 150C/Gas 2.
  • Heat the olive oil and butter in a large frying pan. Add the chicken breasts and cook briefly to seal in the juices. Add the diced onion and cook until translucent but not coloured.
  • Remove the pan from the heat. Warm the brandy, pour into the pan and ignite, then wait for the flames to die down.
  • Add the mushrooms, pour over the cream and season well. Transfer everything to an ovenproof dish and cover with foil. Bake in the preheated oven for about an hour. Serve with some rich mustard mash.
