“This old French classic is well worth cooking. Start to finish in about 1 hour. The potatoes are cooked along with the chicken, to save time and washing up !!!! For a dinner party sub the chicken with four poussins, and have a bird each. If you use thin skinned potatoes there is no need to peel them.”
