French Fridays with Dorie – Haiku
Chicken in a pot
A meal everyone should know.Dorie does many .
As far as they go,
“ Les paresseux ” is better.
Still, this was tasty.
Skin needed broiling.
“Admire the brown chicken!”
(Who was she kidding?
M. Jacques’ Armagnac Chicken
I never feel more like a cook than when I’m preparing a simple roasted chicken. Its a good thing as have never made a roasted chicken that I didn’t like. Some are better than others but all of them are good. So, I was not surprised to find that this one was quite tasty even though I wished it looked a bit better. A quick trip under the broiler saved the day as far as its ‘curb appeal’ goes otherwise I would not have brought it to the table. (Did Dorie test this recipe? )
The armagnac is certainly a beguiling ingredient. It gives this informal dish a somewhat curious elegant flavor.
