Onion Puree:

Add the double cream to the chicken stock and reduce until just covering the onions, then blend and pass.
Cut the celery in half and trim until they are about 15cm in length. In a hot pan place the cut side down and colour until golden brown. Add the butter, 100ml of chicken stock and palace in the oven at 180 degrees for 20 minutes. Remove from the oven and leave in the pan to rest.
Season the chickens, place in a moderately warm pan skin side down. Allow to become a light golden brown before placing in the over at 180 degrees for 15 minutes. Remove from the oven, leave in the pan and allow to rest for a further 8 minutes.
Warm up the onion puree and add the breadcrumbs just like you would a break sauce. Season with salt and pepper and dress the plate with the braised celery, roasted chicken and a pot of bread sauce on the side.
