Getting a Rotisserie chicken from the supermarkets (or from Costco) has been a lifesaver for many families… It’s delicious, affordable and makes a wholesome meal with a side of vegetables.
If you are in the mood for a French-style meal, here’s a great rustic recipe using the store-bought Rotisserie chicken as a starting point… It’s served with a delicious French wine sauce with mushrooms and a side of fragrant tomato rice.
Traditionally, button or cremini mushrooms are used for the recipe, but why not use a medley of mushrooms for a more varied texture? This is a rustic and lighter version of a French gravy, without any cream, but it’s still wonderfully flavorful and perfect with the roast chicken.
To thicken the sauce, read my tip on how to make “Beurre Manié” the easy way, without kneading.
