80. Chicken Fricassee at Le Bouchon Du Grove
The humble chicken-in-a-pot dish of peasants has been around probably as long as there have been chickens..and pots. Leave it to the French to turn it into something worthy of a cloth napkin and a fine wine.
Le Bouchon Du Grove slow cooks chicken in a wine, mushroom, and onion base until the meat is ready to fall off the bone. But it's the morel mushroom risotto bed the chicken lies on that makes the dish. It's creamy, cheesy, and piping hot. Served in a crock with a giant spoon to dish onto a smaller plate, we prefer to eat right out of the pot and pretend we're being served a home cooked meal at grandmere's house ($25.95).
