M. Jacques Armagnac Chicken...another Dorie wonder...
I am not going to post the recipe because this may end up being chosen for a French Fridays with Dorie...but in a nutshell, it is some onions and some potatoes...carrots and some herbs sauteed a bit in a cast iron pot.
A nice plump organic chicken seasoned nicely with salt and pepper is nestled into the pan with the veggies...some Armagnac is added . The pot covered and put into the oven for a hour at 450*...the bird comes out and is kept warm and some water is added to the sauce...
Voila...a one pot meal fit for a Queen, the King and their Prince....so simple and so wonderful.
Someone needs to take me out and shoot me....really...I have no more room!
This recipe can be found on pages 204 and 205 of Dorie Greenspan's new cookbook, "Around My French Table"
The recipe appears in the NEW YORK TIMES STYLE MAGAZINE
