Hey there ! I've lived in France for 18 years, people in other parts of the world think we are nuts because we eat frogs legs.....that;s why the French are called "Froggies" heehee !
You are quite right , they DO taste like chicken .....I love them...don't know if I can buy them frozen here .....doubt it , but I'll keep your recipe and use it when I'm next in my daughters' home in France....thanks !

Fannie, I love these frog legs- thanks for sharing this recipe. I am originally from Michigan and the first time I had them was 46 years ago when I went on a date with my Bob (now husband of 46 yrs.) and we had frogs legs.; and we went to this restaurant(now closed) every year on our anniversary to have these frog legs- so thanks for the memories and I will try out this recipe when I find some here in Las Vegas. Yum!
