Armagnac Chicken on a white platter with vegetables and herbs

It seems I always get a raised eyebrow when I mention that I’m making a Dorie recipe…I can’t say they’ve always received positive reviews from the hubby.  But a roast chicken on the roster drew promise.  The roaster, surrounded by sliced onions, carrots, potatoes, herbs, and a healthy dose of Armagnac (a French brandy), filled the kitchen with an amazing aroma during its hour in the oven.

As you can see below, my chicken did not come out golden, so required a little help from the broiler…but the meat was tender and succulent. A perfect Sunday night dinner.
