The original Poulet Bonne Femme recipe
- 7th February 2019
This is the recipe Poulet Bonne Femme is named after, you could say our whole idea revolves around this chicken recipe. A delicious, easy casserole made often by my Mum when we were growing up. We either ate it with rice, roast potatoes or my favourite, a French stick and green salad. Some of you might remember we used to make and sell it from our little pink trailer in the Peoples Park, Dun Laoghaire in 2010. It was so popular, and so tasty……
