a.k.a.  Supremes De Volaille Aux Champignons I love Julia Child.  She had such high enthusiasm with food and loved using fresh ingredients.  I was beyond excited to receive my first Julia Child cookbooks at my bridal shower a few years ago from one of my friends.  (Thank you Maureen!!) This particular recipe is in Mastering the Art of French Cooking, Volume 1. However, a bit of a WARNING before making this dish...  You may be tempted to lick all the remaining sauce off of your plate.  I
