    mersaydees's Note:

    This recipe is based on one from Lou Seibert Pappas’ cookbook, Extra-Special Crockery Pot Recipes. She says, “The Normandy Section of France is noted for this succulent chicken entrée. It calls for apply brandy, a specialty of the region.” This is absolutely fantastic served over rice, pasta or with a crusty bread.

      *Made for Australia/NZ Swap #61* Picked this recipe because calvados is DH's favorite "sipper", so we usually have on hand -- plus we eat LOTSA chicken ! First -- I did not flame the liquor -- 1/2 on purpose, but drizzled it over the sauteed 4 skin-on/bone-in thighs and 4 skinless breast fillets (accidentally purchased !) Proceeded as directed from there and cooked for 7 hours -- perfectly falling-apart done ! Flavor was subtle -- certainly not noticeably apple -- but very nice, with sauce over garlic mashed. Thanks, mersaydees, -- will be doing this again when the gang's all here !
