World Cup: What to serve when France is on the field
June 15, 2018
Wondering what to serve when Les Bleus are on the soccer field? I was too. I tried to figure out what the French grill or barbecue. Apparently nothing. When they grill, they seem to barbecue typically American stuff like ribs and so. My Internet searches turned up a barbecue contest where most of the contestants were wearing cowboy hats.
I couldn’t find any frogs’ legs in my local supermarket. So, since frogs’ legs are said to taste like chicken, I decided to use chicken wings instead. Unsurprisingly, chicken wings also taste like chicken. 🙂
I set about creating this recipe for grilled chicken wings Provençale. I’ve nicknamed it Les Coqs Sportifs. It is really a keeper–and easy, easy, easy.
Please note, I am allowing myself the privilege of calling this recipe “Provençale” although Dijon mustard is not strictly from the Provence region (it’s from the Burgundy region). I hope it will inspire the French to grill more.
Herbes de Provence is a mixture of dried herbs considered typical of the Provence region of southeast France. These blends often contain savory, marjoram, rosemary, thyme, and oregano.
