Lille style chicken


Lille style chicken
Chicken breasts and mushrooms, cooked separately, then mixed with a tasty cream sauce before serving. It's a dish with a "cuisiné" taste, but which unfortunately is becoming increasingly rare in restaurants.

Remarks

For complete success, chicken should be cooked in an old style (not non-stick) pan. Othewise after cooking the chicken, you will not get the tasty juices left on the bottom. The ideal pan is a stainless steel one.

And to drink?: I suggest you follow Patrick's advice, and try a Beaujolais:

"Chénas is one of the Beaujolais wines, and Domaine des Tourniers is one of the best. Old vines 70 to 100 years old, on a hillside, give the wine deep colour, a floral and fruity nose, with notes of blackcurrant and blackberry flavours. In the mouth, the wine has an expressive fruity taste, and finesse without too much tannin. This wine is the ideal accompaniment to Lille style chicken and other white meat recipes. Sells for 9 € at La Cave de Bacchus in Brest"

PS: I followed his advice while preparing this recipe for the site, and it goes very well with it!
