Time spent in the garden and kitchen is not time wasted; the essence of quality is attained through toil, not technology.

The Jacque chicken

Alas, I forgot to take pictures before we dug in for dinner.   This was a delicious meal; I did take some other Doristas' advice and add some extra seasoning; i.e.. fresh garlic and homemade veg./turkey stock for the liquid.   Did not find the armagnac but I used a nice Cognac, and it was wonderful.  I baked it all in my fave Staub chicken roaster (which seems to make magic out of whatever I put in it!); a bit over an hour- thickened the liquids a bit- voila!   Satisfaction!


  1. Tricia and I each had a different take on this dish. Hubby and I loved it,
    her family, not so much. It certainly was an easy recipe and I will be
    making it again for sure.

  2. I loved this one. The Cognac worked well for me too.
