Scottish Recipes
Stoved Chicken

Stoved gives this dish a strange sounding name (almost exotic and mysterious). Stoved simply means that the dish is cooked on the top of the range/ stove/ cooker rather than in the oven. This is a tasty dish which can be served on a variety of occasions
For US to UK equivalents see this rough guide

Recipe Ingredients:
2oz butter
4 small chicken breasts (skinned and thinly sliced)
2lb potatoes (not NEW)
salt & pepper
2 large onions (sliced)
1pt chicken stock
2 tablespoons chopped parsley


Melt half the butter in a large saucepan or flameproof casserole dish. Lightly brown the chicken then remove from the heat and set aside.

Slice the potatoes about 1/4 inch thick and line the bottom of the dish with them. Season this then add a layer of chicken, then a layer of potato, then chicken etc until both ingredients are used (but always ending with a layer of potato).

Pour the stock over the dish and dot the top with small knobs of butter. Bring the dish to the boil, then cover and simmer for about 2 hours. If the dish appears to be dring too quickly add a little water.

The dish can be sprinkled with parsley to garnish if required(matter of taste-I don't) and should serve four.
