Lower the heat, add shallots and cook for 2 minutes until soft. 2. Pour over the gin and ignite the chicken mixture (taking care not to burn yourself). Sprinkle the chicken joints with flour, turn them over and cook for 1 minute. Add the beer, mushrooms, bouquet garni, salt and pepper. Bring the mixture to the boil, cover and simmer for 45 minutes or until the chicken is tender. 3. Discard the bouquet garni, skim off excess fat and add the cream to the mixture. Bring to the boil and taste for seasoning. Serve the chicken in the casserole dish, sprinkled with chopped thyme.
