I was delighted to be invited to do a segment on Good Day Fox 4 on THURSDAY, April 14th especially when they asked me to do FRENCH Food.  

Tune in around 8:30 to see me cooking live.

The French love their chicken so I thought I would use my time honored strategy of Cook Once Eat Twice and apply it to a few of my favorite French chicken dishes.  I started with Crock Pot Chicken Fricassee and used the planned overs for a hearty scrumptious Chicken Pot Au Feu.  

Bon appetit! Lorie
