Pour a drop of vin jaune over the chicken pieces just before serving!

It's even better made with local ingredients

Choose morels from the local region!

Luckily, the Jura Mountains are one of the regions of France where the rare and sought-after morel grows well.

There are about 13 different species. Morels can be found from March to May, but the rare "morel patches" known to connoisseurs are a well-kept secret.

Enthusiasts can always head for shops selling local products, or the cheese dairies that often sell local dried morels. Perfect for this recipe!

The vin jaune character

This exceptional wine makes a wonderful accompaniment for chicken with morels. Its scarcity makes it an expensive wine. It is made from a single grape variety from Jura, savagnin.
