Step 1

Ask your butcher to bone and cut each chicken into 5 pieces.

Heat the butter and oil in a large pot and brown the pieces on all sides.

Add the shallots, peeled and chopped, and cook lightly without browning them. Season with salt and pepper and add the champagne.

Cook for 30 minutes over low heat.

Step 2

Meanwhile, wash and chop the mushrooms and fry for 5 minutes in a pan with butter.
Add the mushrooms to the chicken and cook, still over low heat, for a further 15 minutes.
Dilute the cornstarch in water and then add to the chicken sauce. Remove from the heat and add the crème fraîche.
Cook the rice in boiling water. Coat little dome moulds with champagne using a pastry brush, put the rice in the moulds and turn out onto your serving plates.
Serve the chicken and mushrooms while the rice is still hot and pour over with the champagne and cream sauce.
