My substitutions were skinless chicken breasts for whole cut-up chicken.
Turkey bacon for regular (I did not pre-boil it either).
I used brandy instead of cognac.
I used frozen pearl onions.
I used less oil and no butter in any part of the recipe.
I used a cornstarch slurry instead of butter and flour to thicken the sauce.
I sliced the meat off the bone and then put it back in the sauce at the end.
|FIRE!!! So exciting haha|
|Served with garlic beans.|
These substitutions resulted in a delicious French dinner that I will definitely be making again soon!
