Chicken Chasseur

Misleading menu titles, the Hunter’s Chicken episode. Hunter’s chicken (French: poulet chasseur, poulet à la chasseur and poulet sauté chasseur), such a classic but over the years it has been hijacked by American theories of taking the original and smothering it with cheese. I shall redress that and henceforth within this post there is no further mention of the offening curd. We shall also...

Originally written in December 2016: It has just occurred to me that I made a promise at the start of 2016 to produce either a downloadable .pdf of recipe ideas or create a Web site for #ParlezPantry.

I made a half -hearted attempt at the end of last year, and the previous year but simply didn’t have the time to produce more than a very clunky effort that took far longer to update each post than it ought to have done. I’m not suggesting that I have more time on my hands now, far from it, but I have created a far simpler and I hope better...
