Fricassee is a classic French stew of chicken and vegetables, cooked in white wine and finished with a touch of cream. The light tarragon-infused sauce begs to be sopped up with crusty bread.

This was so good. Although, I did use heavy cream instead of sour cream, and I forgot to throw in the chopped tarragon (too bad, because I love tarragon), but it was still delicious. The sauce didn't thicken much at all, and it would have been nice if it had been thicker. But, I liked the sauce so much that I stood there and at it with a spoon.

Worth the time

We get our chicken from a local organic farm, and the chicken breasts don't come skinned or cut up, and are quite large. So this took quite a bit longer than I thought it would. I also wonder if shallots have gotten bigger since three shallots made a cup of minced. Sauce was a bit thin but delicious. I will make it again.

Delicious and didn't feel like diet food

This was awesome, a big hit for dinner and not overly heavy. To save time, I used boneless chicken breasts and thighs that were pre-trimmed. I added a bit more broth for the sauce and it turned out absolutely wonderful. Definitely is going in my recipe book and will be done over again, though I may make it a bit richer with more spices.
