I know it's not authentic/best practise, but is it possible to do the same dish in non-stick pots and use less oil to make it a bit more healthy on a day-to-day basis? And save all that oil and butter for special occasions? Love your channel! I only found it recently, and I'm glad I did!

what is allpurpose flour in French?
French Cooking Academy (16 days ago)
it is called tapioca but i don’t think it is translated in france it is still sold as arrow root
Aidan Clarke (17 days ago)
Linda Kreutzer — I think it would be "maïzena", i.e. corn starch, or any other "fécule"
Linda Kreutzer (19 days ago)
Really ... I'll try bread and cookies again with the farine without going to the American Store to buy All-Purpose Flour, thanks. I need to buy Arrowroot, what is that called in French?
French Cooking Academy (19 days ago)
just farine or flour
Pelican1984 (20 days ago)
Wonderful. I especially like how you use the lesser bits of the chicken to prepare the sauce. I think this would work well with wild game like rabbit as well, where there are smaller bones and back without much meat, but with flavor to lend. Thanks!!!

French food has somehow been assassinated in the US by those hipsters eateries. Thank you for showing some of the old traditional recipes. Every culture has a similar form of Chicken Chasseur. They are always rich, flavorful, brawny and very organic. Job well done. Think I will try that recipe tomorrow.

Very good recipe. The tarragon really makes the dish. Alas, I did not have any cognac or ordinary white wine on hand, so I deglazed with sherry (I figure a dry fortified wine is pretty close to a dry white wine plus some cognac) - the results were still delicious. I *love* your utterly unpretentious delivery and clear instructions. Great channel.

Great chicken chasseur recipe! Just be careful if you use that style pot on a range top. They are made for baking. I've used one that had been in my family for over 50 years without worry on the range top same as in this video for another 15 years. Then it broke. Was a sad day. Better to use cast iron without the porcelain coating, and to only heat up slowly, same as with any cast iron product, if you want to use the range top. Rapid temp changes cause the porcelain to crack eventually with range top use.

Made this recipe for dinner this evening. It was SUPERB! The rich sauce, infused with tarragon, parsley, and shallots, was a hit with the whole family. I served the chicken chasseur with glazed carrots and mashed potatoes (with the sauce over the potatoes). The meal went well with a Keuka Lake Vineyards 2015 semi-dry riesling. Finished the meal with my raspberry compote crepes, and now I'm the hero of the day. Many thanks for the outstanding direction and a truly superb recipe.

I've begun watching you videos and I'm instantly in love! I've noticed that you don't use celery in your aromatics, though. Do you simply not care for it, or is there a deeper answer?

So I assume this used to be made with some other birds, like pheasant maybe? I mean you don't really hunt chickens.

MsJavaWolf — Yes it was used with small preys (pheasants, quails, rabbits...) though it can be a real hunt if the chicken is on sale in my supermarket 😋

I did not have all the ingredients on hand. But I did make a substitute. It was delish. This is a dish that can be played with. Great recipe. I did start with a healthy vegetable stock. Then added base. Hey .. using what I have. Added mushrooms, shallots and yellow bell pepper. Did not have cognac or white wine. I did deglaze with vegetable stock. It did turn out well.

the best in general is just not to use the alchohol involved in the recipes. as there are no substitute that will mimic those flavors unfortunately

It's much the same story for the Italian dish pollo alla cacciatora - that means the same thing and it's very similar. Delia Smith, the British TV cook, has a recipe for chicken chasseur in her book "One is fun!" which I like because it's something I can make just for me (I live on my own) and I love it with tagliatelle. Obviously it can't be quite the same as how you would do it for more people but all the key ingredients are there - chicken, tomato, mushrooms, onion, herbs - and it's a real treat just for me. Merci a la belle France pour cette recette.
Aidan Clarke (2 months ago)
TheRenaissanceman65 — It goes so well with pasta!
tonkatoytruck (4 months ago)
Way too may steps and use of pans. I prefer to do it in one pan and forget the oven. Skip the wine too unless you already plan to share a meal with others or drink the whole bottle yourself. Straining is for restaurants. Us real people do not mind. And the brown "stuff" at the bottom of the pan is called fond. Another time saver; leave the bones in and remove them after they have cooked in the stock. Serving the chicken pieces whole makes a mess at the table and creates headaches for your guests when eating.
stinkyfungus (2 months ago)
He used the same la cruset to brown the chicken, cook the mushrooms, and finish the sauce. He did not clean or remove anything from it between steps. Without the bones taken out of the chicken, and simmered to create the stock, WHERE THE HELL WOULD HE HAVE GOTTEN THE INCREDIBLY GORGEOUS RICH STOCK THAT WAS THE HEART OF THE ENTIRE DISH?! I see one la cruset that needs cleaned, one stockpot, and whatever he finished the chicken in the the oven in... Oh boo hoo... 3 pans to clean. Heaven forbid... You sound like a dick.
Lisett Liebreich (2 months ago)
That's the difference between European and American cuisine and lifestyle. Cultivated here in Europe, sloppy in the USA. The intermediate step in the oven is crucial for the good taste.

You make your stock by adding shop brought stock? Not exactly from scratch then?
Victor Dulerain (4 months ago)
nothing better than the classics. chicken chasseur, or chicken cacciatore, in italian cuisine are fantastic. a couple of things though. skip the buerre manie, and saute a roux to a nut brown, much better flavor, then add the mirepoix. wild mushrooms are in order here instead of the champignons. bolets, morels..whatever you find in the forest, saute the tomato paste to bring out its goodness, and keep the chix, after sauteing, in a 400F oven for a min of 45 min to cook through (dry heat-no sauce- to keep the skin crisp)...these are just suggestions. thank you for bringing back great memories
Victor Dulerain (3 months ago)
btw, make the recipe your own, you're not limited to the exact table of ingredients. this is hunter's chicken....much like bouillabaisse, you cook whatever you catch and won't sell. have fun with it....sherry vinegar, at the end.
Victor Dulerain (3 months ago)
you can use any wine, white or red, as long as it's a wine you would drink. pick something low in acidity red- merlot, white-sauvignon blanc. keep it under $10 and bob's your uncle. bon appetit!

The story of the food makes no sense.. 1. Hunters don't hunt Chicken 2. Mushroom is more something you gather 3. How the fuck is a hunter going to make the sauce etc that takes so many ingredients and is relatively complicated to make IT would make more sense if it was deer or something and it was all cooked in one pan without the need for an oven etc
crnel (4 months ago)
During the old hunting days this dish would have been made from different birds - i.e. pheasant or partridge etc. There weren't any wild chickens in France. ?
