Weekends in a French Kitchen (click to read about the project: here) continues with this quick-to-the-table recipe.  And if you're interested in joining the fun, I'm including affiliate links to the cookbooks at the bottom of the post.

Special thanks to the project organizers: Alice of A Mama, Baby and Sharpei in the Kitchen, Christy of Confessions of a Culinary Diva, Tammy of Telling Stories from Chez Nous, and Emily of Blue Bungalow. I am having so much fun with these recipes.

This week's selection from Daniel Boulud and Dorie Greenspan's cookbook - Café Boulud Cookbook - is Lacquered Chicken with Noodle Salad You'll find this recipe on pages 234-235 of the Café Boulud Cookbook...we will not be posting the actual recipes on our blogs.

My Thoughts...
I have made chicken similar to this many times. I just never knew what it was called. I love the word 'lacquered.' I mean, look at this! It is glossy, lacquered goodness.

I added more veggies to the noodle salad, using the delicious bounty from my CSA, and substituted rice noodles since my husband is currently gluten-free.


  1. Your chicken looks delicious - such a lovely burnished colour.

  2. Yum! We loved this recipe. I like that you added more veggies to the pasta. I will definitely do that next time too.

  3. Your chicken turned out like mine and we thought it was delicious. As always love your photos.

  4. We also used a different pasta because of allergies, but came really close to the intended spirit of the dish. Such lovely flavors!
