This recipe came from close friend and cooking buddy Linda Petrash. We had a wonderful time cooking together while our children played close by. Chicken Chasseur is also called the hunter’s chicken (poulet sauté chasseur). It is a classic French stew. I would guess that the French would more often choose shallots instead of green onions, and perhaps brandy or white wine instead of sherry. Our recipe is an American variation of the classic.

Chasseur is the dish Jeff asks me to prepare each year around his birthday. It was on the regular meal rotation at our house while he was growing up and didn't seem to take an inordinate amount of time to fix. As the years have gone by it takes longer and longer... I lament the loss of our old Harvest Gold three-legged electric pot. Its non-stick coating from 1973 was iffy at best, but it was the absolute best pot for Chasseur.
