This dish is a timeless French classic that may be welcomed, wherever you go. The combination of chicken, mushrooms, and onions in a tomato and wine sauce creates a hearty meal that will be a family favorite. Taken literally, the name means "hunter's chicken" and takes you back to a time when mushrooms and game birds taken from the forest were used to make up this traditional autumn dish. This dish is perfectly paired with mashed potatoes.
