Fake-assoulet attempt #2

Ok. When they say acid toughens beans, they are right.

Tasty, but a little dry. I should have added some liquid near the end.

Cassoulet? It's white beans with pork and chicken, covered in bread crumbs. It's supposed to be made with duck confit, but I used some old breasts in the freezer, which is why I called it fake-assoulet.

I don't have a picture of it from this batch, but here's the jist

OH That's that thing you took pictures of before too, right? I remember the sausage and beans part. You're a really great chef to make all these fancy foods. I don't even know what duck confit is.

It's duck legs poached in duck fat. It's easy to find pre-made (wrapped in plastic), but I've never had it.

Thanks, but I'm not that fancy. I eat a lot of grill cheese sandwiches. This was all pantry-cleaning. My chicken was freezer-burned. I just had some free time.

Does look a little dry. Punch a few holes in the crust and add a little chicken broth.
