It's quite difficult to buy rabbit these days but this recipe has always been a favourite dinner party and feed-the-family recipe. This recipe can be adapted for chicken joints, using tarragon instead of chives and adding it with the stock. A small amaout of tarragon can be added at the end but take care as the flavour must not be too strong or it will spoil the dish.
NB AND THIS IS IMPORTANT - If you have a cooker hood with a fan turn it off before igniting the Cognac. The first time I did this I didn't and caught my cooker hood on fire. It was interesting watching the fan draw the flames up into the hood!!
