Rustic Country French Chicken
Why I Love This Recipe
I remember when I was young (back before baseball), there was a sauce like this that came in a jar. Even back in the day, I didn't like stuff in a jar. I thought it a challenge to replicate the stuffs-in-a-jar that my mom cooked with from scratch.
