Chicken Fricassee ~ A Classic french stew

Chicken Fricassee is a classic french stew where large cut chicken pieces are braised and cooked with vegetables and served with traditional white sauce.

This stew is less spicy as the only spice is going to come from greenchilli and pepper powder used… A varied stew from normal stew we make..

If you want  to have a chicken curry in different way from usual chicken curry then this would be one of the best… you can have this chicken as it as a meal by serving chicken with sauce or just mix both and form a gravy and have it with bread , naan , roti and even rice..I served my family with persian saffron rice which I will post the recipe soon.

You can also add the preferred vegetables like asparagus ,broccoli to it I have added carrots that goes well with this sauce.. Celery is also added to it  that gives a mild flavour but its optional… The method is very simple we just shallow frying the chicken then we cook them in a broth with veggies.then a traditional white sauce is made and mixed with chicken broth.. Normally the white is made with milk but for a change its made with the broth we prepare with chicken which has all flavours of chicken… Egg yolk and cream mixture is also added at last to give a more creamier texture..
