Hi Bent,
It has to be Chicken Marengo! (simmered for too long then pulled out of the fire at the last minute...) It is essential to make the version with Crawfish. Napoleon was prone to chastise his chef for making 'improvements' to what was a scratch-built battlefield recipe, and insisted on retaining the original, unusual combination of ingredients. I believe Larrousse Gastronomique has the details. I would be happy to post a couple of versions. Yes, Chambertin was a favourite of Napoleon's.
Cheers, Ben
