    Direct (no translation) from Meagan's Parisian friend Claire (BFFs 4 ever)...

    - take a good and tasty chicken
    - cut it in pieces
    - brown an onion in a casserole dish in cast iron with 1/2 cup of butter and another of olive oil
    - make the pieces of chicken golden brown and add 12-14oz of smoked cubed bacon (lardon if you can find it)
    - pour 3/4 of a bottle of champagne &#40;<u>drink the rest during the cooking!</u>&#41;
    - add 2 cups of fresh cream
    - make it salty and peppery
    - add some potatoes cut in 4 pieces into the casserole dish &amp; 12-14 oz of button mushrooms
    - let it cook during 45 minutes on a low flame
    - thicken the sauce with corn flour in case &#40;some spoons&#41;
    - make the seasoning getting better

    Serve with a light red wine &#40;Burgundy/Beaujolais&#41;

    Bill, that sounds incredible. I might be doing that tonight. Cynde, just get a couple more bottles of Champagne. Think I might try it with Proseco, as I have three bottles in the cellar.
