Yield: Serves four to six

Ingredients

  • 3 pounds chicken parts
  • Flour for dredging
  • 1 egg, beaten with a little water
  • 1 cup sesame seeds
  • 6 tablespoons butter
  • ¼ cup Cognac, warmed
  • ½ cup dry white wine
  • 4 tablespoons melted butter
  • ½ cup heavy cream

Directions

Dredge the chicken pieces well in flour, dip in beaten egg, and roll in sesame seeds till completely covered. Brown quickly in the 6 tablespoons of butter. Transfer the pieces to a large flameproof casserole, pour the Cognac over, and flambé.
