Chicken Fricassee

Chicken Fricassee

An easy and quick to make weeknight classic chicken fricassee recipe. A healthy meal for your family that’s going to become a staple in your house.

I’ve had this classic Frenchbook for years now, and I’ve always been afraid to try any of the recipes in there. I’ve always thought of French food as difficult or time consuming, but very delicious. Well this past weekend I decided to look through the book and see if there was any dish in there that wouldn’t scare me off.

So this is how I came across this old fashioned chicken fricassee recipe, and the thing that I liked about it is that it used chicken wings and thighs, so I thought it would be perfect since I happened to have all the ingredients it asked for. I have to be honest, it’s not something you can whip up in 30 minutes, but it’s worth it. I really enjoyed the flavors of this dish, and, well you know me, I love mushrooms, so chicken and mushrooms together, well how can you go wrong.
