  • In a Dutch oven or big oven-proof skillet melt butter on a medium high heat. Add chicken and brown from both sides, about 4-5 minutes per side. Transfer chicken to a plate.
  • To the same pan add shallot and onion and sauté for about 5 minutes until translucent.
  • Add chicken stock, scraping the brown bits off the bottom of the pan.
  • Add thyme and bay leaves and bring a mixture to a boil.
