|Chicken Breast Diable|
During my brief time teaching middle school English at a Yeshiva I learned many things about Judaism. One of the profoundest discoveries was that Jews do not have a Devil.
There is no evil Being taunting and tempting you in Judaism. I was so jealous. Growing up Catholic in the 70's was all about the devil... it was the age of "The Exorcist" and "Rosemary's Baby" The devil was not just tormenting Christians, he was haunting everyone in America... there was no escaping him.
|Chicken Diable served with Mashed Potatoes & Green Beans|
This dish is called "Diable" which in French means "The Devil" but there is nothing diabolical about this chicken. It is classic, classic, French fare: butter, shallots, garlic, white wine, cream, Worcestershire sauce and yes... lots of Dijon mustard which is the diable of the ingredients.
This chicken is elegant and easy to make... I almost always have the ingredients for it on hand. It can be thrown together and served within a half an hour...
It is almost too good... BEWARE, once you eat it you will want to eat it again and again... You might even be willing to sell your soul to you know who... for just one more bite.
Here is a recipe for Chicken Breast Diable
Note: As a member of French Friday's with Dorie I am not allowed to print the recipe. I invite you to take a look at this wonderful cookbook "Around My French Table" if you are interested in this or any other recipe I review.
