Chicken & Mushroom Fricasee with Homemade Pasta (Mes Bouchées à la reine)
This complete dish consists of a fricassee of chicken with homemade pasta.
The chicken is diced and cooked in a broth and set aside. Then, I brown the onions with a little butter and the fresh mushrooms which I incorporate into the chicken. I prepare my bechamel and add it to the chicken with the seasonings. For the spaetzle, I mix the flour, the eggs, the milk and the seasoning. The dough is then poured into my special utensil to form the spaetzle which I cook in a vegetable broth at first and then I finish by browning them in a pan with a little butter and the seasoning.
“Les Bouchées à la reine” is a typical dish from the North East of France. The region where I come from and where I grew up.
I offer you my version of this famous dish, delicious and suitable for the whole family and at any time. Children love spaetzle because they are pasta, of course! It takes a long time to prepare this dish, but it's worth it! For any occasion, it suits all tastes. I would like to make you discover it and I hope you will enjoy it!

Bonjour I'm Micheline 👩🏻🍳
I come from a family where good food and large family meals are the joy of life. I have unforgettable memories where my mother and sisters, excellent cooks, spent hours concocting magnificent meals! Home cooking brings people together and good food makes you smile! My family upbringing brought me great values and in particular the respect for food, non-waste and the pleasure of the taste buds. Coming from a family where mum cooked different dishes every day, I can thank her for having developed in me the pleasure of cooking. It is so rewarding when you are told that it is so good or when you are asked for another plate!
My cuisine is mainly French and European with a strong Asian influence. I am a citizen of the world for having travelled for more than 10 years and discovered many flavours. I have family recipes but I'm always on the lookout for new cooking ideas.
I like to cook because I like to please. I can say that I cook with love! It is very important because I want to offer the best to my family. I appreciate knowing what's on my plate. So cooking is the best way to eat a balanced and varied diet!
In France, I was a commercial engineer but the pleasure of cooking was lacking so I created a catering company where I cooked from home. It was a great experience with satisfied customers. In Sydney for two and a half years, I work as a cook in a Japanese restaurant and also as a French teacher occasionally and can’t wait to cook for you too. *** BON APPÉTIT ! ***
This is a complete meal but you can add a fresh salad drizzled with a french viniagrette.
