This is a wonderful meal for friends and family. It is actually much better the day after. I use the small, brown Cremini mushrooms, but you can use the white button ones. Serve this with a crisp, romaine salad, some crusty French bread, and country red wine. Times are approximate.
Chicken Chasseur is one tasty meal that can be created with ease for either a family or celebration meal. Any part of the chicken can be used for this recipe although chicken thighs seems to have more flavour than the fillet and are more suited if you wish to cook the recipe slowly. The ideal accompaniment to chicken Chasseur would be small new potatoes and seasonal vegetables. However, with this dish being something that could be left in a slow cooker or a low oven to cook all day whilst you are at work you might not want to be preparing vegetables before eating. Either use quick cook rice or have your vegetables ready washed in your fridge so that they can be put into a steamer whilst you lay the table for dinner. There is nothing stopping you adding vegetables such as potatoes, carrots and peas to the Chicken Chasseur so that it is a complete meal ready to eat for your dinner when you arrive home after a hard days work.

This is a nice elegant meal to serve. The flavor improves in the refrigerator. I use thigh meat because it has a rich flavor, and it stands up to the braising process. I also remove the skin, just because it looks better in the finished product. You may use about 1 Tbsp. of butter with the olive oil if you prefer that flavor.

Chasseur is French for hunter. This is an updated version of an old classic. If fresh tarragon is unavailable, double the amount of fresh parsley-don't use dried tarragon. Serve with egg noodles or mashed potatoes! Adapted from Cook's Illustrated magazine.
