THAT CHICKEN THOUGH

THAT CHICKEN THOUGH

A few weeks ago I said I would publish the recipe for Richard Olney’s Chicken Gratin. I thought I might be able to cut corners and just put up a link to it. However, while there are Richard Olney recipes to be found online, this is not one of them. I was happy to see… Read More
