Jacques Pepin’s Crusty Chicken Thighs

…it’s a dish, not a description of his legs 😉

I have been a huge fan of Jacques Pepin since I first saw him cooking alongside Julia Child. It was a great introduction to traditional French cooking in a no fuss way.  His show Fast Food My Way continues what he started with the esteemed Julia, maybe with a bit less butter. I have made these chicken thighs on several occasions and it is still hard for me to believe that such a great tasting recipe can be so simple.

Here are the ingredients:

  • 4 chicken thighs, skin on
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 cup onion, diced
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons chopped garlic
  • 3 cups white mushrooms, washed and diced
  • 1/3 cup dry white wine
  • 1 tablespoon chives, chopped

The procedure for this dish can be found at The Serious Eats Recipes blog.

I recently served this on a bed of couscous along with some roasted asparagus for an elegant dinner. No one knew that I did not slave over this all day.
