Chicken in Fricassea

Chicken in Fricassea

Chicken in Fricassea is first seared in a pan and finished off by braising the meat in some wine or broth.  Add a side of roasted potatoes or rice and you have a complete meal.

  •     8 Chicken thighs – usually cut up pieces of a whole chicken are used, but this is what I had in the refrigerator.
