Cooking With The Old Farmer's Almanac

Lean and Easy: Chicken Chasseur

Margo Letourneau

This Chicken Chasseur recipe from the Almanac Garden-Fresh Cookbook is simple-to-make. I used chicken strips, as they are very lean and easy to cut into bite-size pieces.

Since I was cooking this dish for a party, I had to make it the night before, so I deliberately added a cup more broth to “marinate” the chicken. I reheated the chicken in a slow cooker. You could easily thicken the broth with a bit more flour, which is what I'm going to do with the leftovers, and serve it with rice.

I really love the combination of flavors in this recipe. Think about making it for dinner tonight!



Chicken Chasseur

Salt, to taste
3 pounds chicken pieces
2 tablespoons butter
1 cup chicken stock
3 shallots, minced
1 tablespoon chopped fresh chervil
½ teaspoon chopped fresh thyme
1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
1-½ cups sliced mushrooms
¼ cup dry white wine

Sprinkle salt on the chicken. In a Dutch oven over low heat, melt the butter. Add the chicken, cooking slowly to brown on all sides. Add the stock and simmer for 10 minutes. Add the shallots, chervil, and thyme and simmer for 5 minutes. Add the flour and whisk until smooth. Add the mushrooms and wine, cover, and simmer for 15 minutes, or until the chicken is tender.

Makes 4 servings.

I like to use a handful of fine bulgar for thickening. Adds a good, subtle taste and texture in addition to thickening.
