If we had a French grandmother, she would teach us to make this streamlined version of the classic French poulet grand-mère.
Make it your Sunday supper tradition, with a sub-90-minute cook time that keeps it real.
Creamy, buttery potatoes and meaty mushrooms mix with bacon, a couple handfuls of thyme, and unpeeled garlic cloves (your fantasy French grandmother would want the dish to be rustic).
After you're done, squeeze the golden garlic onto slices of levain for nothing that resembles "garlic bread."
