I just prepared this recipe yesterday. It is good. I made some modifications though in order to add some flavors to its taste. First of all I decided to add some honey to it. I also used some mushrooms to add some variety. Also make sure to use fresh vegetables because believe me it makes a big difference. In this recipe it is said that it is usually served with rice, however, you can enjoy it with pasta or mashed potatoes. It is just a matter of personal preference. Last, if don’t have the opportunity to enjoy with a fine bottle of wine, try a hot chicken broth freshly prepared with your own ingredients.

chicken is simmered with bell peppers, onion, garlic and tomatoes, perfuming the entire condominium with a mouth-watering aroma. Serving rice with this dish will take in much of the scrumptious sauce. Basque country is a area in southwest France and northerly Spain based across the Pyrenees Mountains along the Atlantic coast. The individuals there are neither French nor Spanish, they are Basque.

I went to the French friends and ate the "Poulet Basquaise" was delicious. I'll probably buy this great product to make French taste in my family.

I tried to cook this as it seems so simple to me.Actually, I'm not a very good cook but come on this chicken basquaise is so easy to do! I ate mine with pasta (I know it's kinda weird :p ) and I can say that I was a little proud of myself because my chicken basquaise was so delish. Don't know if it was successful though.
