Monsieur Jacques' Armagnac Chicken is simple and delicious. It takes just a few ingredients to make what I believe will become a family favorite: chicken, onions, potatoes, carrots, spices, brandy or cognac. Saute the vegetables slightly in a dutch oven, add the whole chicken and place in the oven for an hour. Can it get any easier than that?!
Since I joined French Fridays with Dorie I have learned so much; from how to "spatchcock" a cornish hen to how to stuff a pumpkin to make the most delicious appetizer, but this dish has to be not only one of the tastiest but the easiest to make. Next week we'll be making Quatre-Quarts (pound cake) from Dorie Greenspan's Around My French Table.
