Recipes: Chicken Au Champagne; Cauliflower Gratin

I mentioned the book French Women Don't Get Fat in an earlier blog post and the recipe Chicken Au Champagne.  Voila!  We made it last night for the second time along with Mireille's (the author) Cauliflower Gratin.

The chicken is so flavorful and easy to make -- here is the recipe:
Note: We didn't use Champagne but instead some inexpensive sparkling wine.  I believe that cooking with good Champagne is such a waste!

For the Cauliflower Gratin, I threw in some broccoli as well and doubled the amount of cheese (so in the end, it wasn't low fat).  Interestingly, the Cauliflower Gratin recipe in the book is different from what's on Mireille's website.

This is an easy meal to make during the weekday.

  1. OK. I have been sadly absent from this locale because of my crazy life. Work just lost some craziness. So here I am.

    We're trying this recipe even as I speak (type). Stay tuned!
