Chicken Chasseur is a savory, rustic French recipe that makes for great comfort food during the colder times of year. The sauce (which itself has plenty of mushrooms and tomatoes) goes nicely over rice, pasta, mashed potatoes, and even a variety of different veggies.
“Chasseur” is actually the French word for “hunter,” though I’m not sure why that word would be associated with chicken. Perhaps it is meant to refer to chicken cooked well enough that even a life-long hunter would enjoy, or perhaps this is the sort of meal that would be prepared for a hunter while he was away and served at the end of a very long hunt. More traditional versions of this recipe leave the skin on the kitchen and even include a bit of cognac. Minus the cognac and with skinless boneless chicken, this version of the recipe is a bit lighter and lower on the calories, but I assure you that it still has a hearty, multi-dimensional, country-style flavor.
