Sean Ring Organic Chicken marinated with Highbank Organic Medieval Cider

Serves: 4-6


  • 1 full chicken
  • 1 bottle of Highbank medieval cider
  • 1 organic crème fraiche 250gr
  • 3 large organic shallots, thinly sliced
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • 1 yellow organic onion, thinly sliced
  • 200gr organic carrots, sliced or diced
  • 200gr organic button mushrooms
  • little chopped garlic
  • 60gr organic walnut (pieces)


  1. Cut the chicken in 8 pieces and marinate with the bay leaf, cinnamon stick and the medieval cider for a minimum of 6 to 8 hours (or longer if you prefer).
  2. After that time, remove the chicken from the marinate, dry it and seal it in a hot pan with coconut oil or olive oil.
  3. When the chicken is nicely coloured, put it back in the marinate and add the thinly chopped onion, shallot and carrots.
  4. Cook in oven at 180 degrees for about 45 minutes (with a lid)
  5. In the meantime, roast the button mushroom in a very hot pan until nicely brown and add a little garlic. Roast the chopped walnut in coconut oil for few minutes or in oven for 10 minutes
  6. When cooked, remove the chicken, bay leaf and cinnamon stick, reduce the juice by half and then add the crème fraiche.
  7. Reduce again the sauce until smooth consistency and add some Highbank apple wine, then the roasted button mushroom on top and the roasted walnut.
