admin's picture
  Chicken 3 Pound, quartered (1 Whole)
  Mustard 1⁄3 Cup (5.33 tbs) (May Use Half Dijon Style And Half Coarse Pommery Style Mustard)
  Freshly ground black pepper To Taste
  Vermouth/Dry white wine 1⁄3 Cup (5.33 tbs)
  Creme fraiche/Heavy cream 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)
  Salt To Taste

Coat the chicken with the mustard and set it in a bowl, covered, to marinate at room temperature for 2 hours.
Preheat oven to 350°F.
Arrange chicken, skin side up, in a flameproof baking dish.
Scrape out any mustard remaining in the bowl and spread it evenly over the chicken.
Season lightly with pepper and pour the vermouth or wine around the chicken.
Set dish on the center rack of the oven and bake, basting occasionally, for 30 to 40 minutes, or until chicken is done.
You may have to bake the dark meat sections for another 5 to 10 minutes.
Scrape the mustard off the chicken and back into the baking dish.
Transfer chicken pieces to a serving platter, cover, and keep warm.
Skim as much fat as possible from the cooking juices and set the baking dish over medium heat.
Bring to a boil, whisk in the creme fraiche or heavy cream, and lower heat.
Simmer the sauce for 5 to 10 minutes, or until it is reduced by about one third.
Season lightly with salt and pepper.
Taste, correct seasoning, and spoon sauce over the chicken.
