This recipe worked well using a pressure cooker for 20 minutes instead of a slow cooker. I also replaced the cream with whole milk and my family found it to be quite tasty! I'm sending this quick savory recipe to my college son for the cold winters in Reno.
Rich Chicken Stew
A blanquette is a classic French stew of veal, chicken or lamb with mushrooms in a velvety sauce. This concept has been adapted to the slow cooker to make a lightened-up version using chicken thighs. Just a little whipping cream (which is less inclined to break down than lighter creams and gives more density to the sauce) adds richness. This is delightful over egg noodles.

This was not very good. I'm an experienced cook, and I do a lot of ragouts, but this dish was mediocre at best. The lemons disintegrated in the pot during cooking, and the white pith imparted a lot of bitterness to the stew. If I ever made this again, which is unlikely, I would lose the lemon slices during cooking and just go with a gremolata as a finish. Don't waste your time.
So Yummy! I've been looking for a chicken soup recipe to rival my mother's for years, and I think I just found it! Go easy on the parsley though. The recipe calls for a whole cup! I put in a fraction of that, and it was perfect. You just don't want it to overpower the chicken. I didn't have any egg noodles when I made this, but it is very good over white rice also.
This dish is fantastic - cooked it exactly and it was pure perfection. As is every other Eating Well recipe!!!! :)
