Jambonneau is a French culinary term for the knuckle end of a leg of pork or ham. It is consumed fresh, salted or smoked. In addition, after braising or poaching, jambonneau is traditionally served with sauerkraut or used in soups.[1]

The same term may also be used for a chicken thigh that has been stuffed, usually with forcemeat, shaped like a ham and bruised. Such a preparation is called jambonneau as it has a shape similar to the pork or ham form.[1]
