Auge Valley Chicken Stew Recipe

Recipe Ingredients

1 large chicken, quartered
2 carrots, peeled and diced
1 shallot, sliced
4 pippin apples**
1 lb white mushrooms, washed and minced
1/2 cup butter
1/4 cup oil
2 onions - one sliced, one studded wi, th cloves
1 cup dry white wine
1 clove garlic
1 thyme leaves
1 bay leaves
1 salt and fresh ground black pepper
1 cup creme fraiche or whipping cream**
1 shot glass (1 tablespoon) calvados*, *
3 egg yolks

Recipe Preparation

**For the apples I used Granny Smith's. For the creme fraiche or
whipping cream, I used the whipping cream. For the Calvados - which
would have been too expensive to use, even if I had located it over
here, I substituted an apple flavored liqueur and just added a little
brandy. (Calvados is a dry apple brandy from Calvados in Northern
France - very good, but I couldn't find it locally) In a cast iron
casserole, lightly brown the chicken in half the butter and 2
Tablespoons oil. When all the pieces are nice and golden. add the
carrots, shallots and the sliced onion and cook for a few minutes.
Pour the white wine and 1 cup of water over the chicken, then add the
clove studded onion and the garlic. Add some thyme leaves and bay
leaves and season with salt and pepper. Cover and simmer over low
heat for 40 minutes. (While this was cooking the 40 minutes, I peeled
and minced the mushrooms - I know everyone tells me there is no need
to peel the mushrooms, but I always do <g>) Remove the chicken from
the heat, arrange the pieces of chicken in an ovenproof serving dish
and keep warm. Pass the cooking liquid through a sieve. Set the
vegetables aside and keep warm. Meanwhile melt the remaining butter
in a skillet with the oil, add the apples and cook until just lightly
brown on all sides. Remove the apples from the skillet and arrange
them around the chicken. Keep the dish warm in the oven. Saute the
mushrooms until they have lost all their juices. Set aside to add to
the sauce. To make the sauce: Pour the strained cooking liquid into a
saucepan and set over medium heat. With a whisk, beat in the cream,
the calvados and the egg yolks in that order. Simmer in a double
boiler until it has thickened to a light cream. Stir in the mushrooms
and the vegetables, discarding the clove-studded onion. Adjust
seasoning. Remove the dish from the oven, spoon some of the sauce
over the chicken and pour the remaining sauce into a sauceboat and
serve. From The Cookie Lady's Files

Some reduced carb diet tips:
* Know what is in your food Don't believe food packaging that claims to be 'low carb' - check the nutritional information figures on the back of the can or packet. A good number of are only marginally reduced and in some instances still greater than a competitors normal brand. In addition, beware of 'low sugar' and 'low fat' labels - 'low sugar' doesn't always mean 'low carb' - often the carbs are exactly the same.

Flavonoid superfoods
