I created the following recipe and dedicated it to Mr François Hederfulen (1955 – 1999) executive head chef of the Fulen restaurant in southern France whom I trained with for many years. I hope you enjoy it.

2 table spoon honey
1 Spanish onion
1 large carrot
1 tea spoon of fresh grated ginger (optional)

1 cup on dry white wine
salt and pepper to taste

In a separate bowel mix together the grain mustard, soya sauce and honey lightly season with salt and pepper then cover the pieces of chicken with the mixture. Cook for 30/35 minutes or until tender. Remove chicken from dish and cover. Place dish on medium fire and deglaze with white wine and add half bouillon cube cook for further 2 minutes on high heat remove and strain using a fine sieve.
