Poulet Poché Au Vin BlancChicken with White Wine and Aromatic Veggies Serves 4 to 6 Adapted from Mastering the Art of French Cooking, Volume II, by Julia Child and Simone Beck This is a very simple, basic poached chicken that Julia recommended serving with steamed rice topped with minced parsley and a glass of the same white wine that you used to cook the chicken. Sounds great! (this recipe was copied from Julia Child's book Mastering the Art of French Cooking)
Ingredients: 2 carrots, sliced 1 1/2 inches long2 onions, sliced3 stalks celery, sliced1 cup chicken stock or 3 tablespoons butter2-1/2 pounds chicken pieces (any combo of breasts, legs, thighs)Salt and pepper1 1/2 cup dry white wine2 cups chicken stock. The following herbs tied in cheesecloth:1/2 teaspoon dried tarragon, 1 bay leaf, 1/4 teaspoon dried thyme, 4 sprigs fresh parsley) Preparation: 1- Steam the veggies in the chicken stock or in butter until tender, about 10 minutes. Reserve. 2- Arrange the chicken in one layer in a large sauté pan. Season with salt and pepper. 3- Pour the wine and stock over the chicken and tuck the herb packet into the liquid. 4- Simmer, covered, over very low heat until done, about 25 minutes for dark meat, 20 for white.
NOTE: Poaching means slow cooking so that chicken pieces will retain their shape, and will be tender. Boiling will toughen the meat! 5- Serve with the vegetables.
Its a foodie movie, comes out today. It's about the now famous food icon of the ‘60s Julia Child (Meryl Streep) and Julie Powell (Amy Adams), whose 2005 book, Julie and Julia: 365 Days, 524 Recipes, 1 Tiny Apartment Kitchen documents her attempts to cook each of the 524 recipes in Child's two-volume Mastering the Art of French Cooking (1961, 1970).
