Foolproof Chicken Fricassee!
It’s the original French comfort food… Chicken Fricassee: simmered chicken with hearty vegetables in a rich, silky sauce. And almost as satifying as the dish itself is having a one-pot master recipe in your repertoire!
This quintessential chicken stew is traditionally served over rice, creamy mashed potatoes, or – our choice – lightly buttered egg noodles. You’ll also want to have a loaf of crusty bread on hand to sop up the sauce.
A fricassee is halfway between a saute and a stew. A true classic – with as many variations as there are grandmothers in France – it relies on humble ingredients and just a single pot. Once you’ve mastered this recipe, the variations are endless.
Fricassee can be made in advance – just leave out the tarragon until you’re ready to serve the meal. Let fricassee cool completely in the pot, and then refrigerate it. Before serving, heat, uncovered, until hot, and then stir in the tarragon. Bon Appetit!
