Poulet en casserole

Yield: 4 servings

Measure Ingredient
1 each Broiler-fryer (about 3 lbs)
1 x (I usually just use chicken
2 tablespoons Vegetable oil
2 tablespoons Butter or margarine
2 eaches Cloves garlic, minced
12 eaches Whole white onions, peeled
12 eaches Small white potatoes, pared
4 eaches Large carrots, pared and qua
1 cup Dry white wine
2 teaspoons Salt
1 teaspoon Leaf rosemary, crumbled
½ teaspoon Freshly ground pepper
1 can Condensed chicken broth

1. Wash and dry chicken; skewer neck skin to back; twist the wing tips flat against skewered neck skin; tie the legs to tail with kitchen string.

2. Heat oil and butter or margarine with the minced garlic in a 12 cup flame proof casserole or a large kettle. Brown chicken in the hot fat; remove.

3. Saute onions, potatoes and carrots in drippings; remove and reserve. Stir wine, salt, rosemary and pepper into casserole and bring to boiling, scraping up all the cooked on juices from bottom of casserole; stir in chiken broth; return chicken to casserole; surround with browned vegetables; cover. (If using a kettle, place chicken in a 12-cup casserole; surround with browned vegetables; pour sauce over; cover.)

4. Bake in moderate oven (350 degrees) 1 hour, basting several times with casserole juices, or until chicken is tender. Garnish with a bouquet of parsley and serve with a chilled white wine, such as Chablis, and chunks of crusty French bread if you wish. (I usually serve over hot steamed rice.) Serves 4.
