What ingredients do you need for the Wine Chicken with Mustard?

You need just a few ingredients – the chicken, mustard paste, curry leaves, red wine, and salt. We use a sweet homemade port wine, but any red wine will do.

How to make Mustard Chicken in Wine

In a large pot, add 7 tablespoons Mustard paste and a tablespoon of salt to your chicken pieces and mix well. We use a whole chicken that weighs circa 1.25 kg. But if you have a preference, you can use any choice of pieces of the chicken that you like, say thighs, drumsticks or chicken breasts.

Mix well and allow the mixture to marinate for a few hours, or a minimum of 2 hours. If you have more time, 24 hours of marination will make the chicken more tender.

We also marinate the chicken in the same stainless steel pot that we will later cook it. There’s lesser washing up to be done later. 😉

Later add in a dozen curry leaves and 400 ml wine, and allow it to simmer on a low flame for an hour. If you are in a hurry, you can also cook for 30 minutes on medium-high flame. If you don’t drink wine, you can substitute the wine with about 100 ml of vinegar, a tablespoon of honey, and 300 ml water.

Cover the pot while cooking so that you retain the juices and steam. If you’re cooking open pot, you might need to add more wine or water.
