I really liked this dish. I wouldn't change a thing! Very satisfying and easy to make. I paired it with a spinach salad and crusty bread.
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.

i followed the recipe - and used my own delicious fat and salt free chicken stock which only has chicken flavour with a hint of a few vegetables, nothing strong! I read the reviews, made sure that I put in slices of lemon as one reviewer thought maybe people were adding whole lemons. As people were saying it was bitter, I took the lemon slices out half way through cooking. I still added the juice and the zest. No bitter taste at all, just really creamy lemon. Delicious, but really, too much lemon for the majority. Perhaps leave out the lemon juice and certainly take out the slices half way through cooking. Served with a mix or red, brown and wild rice. But, creamy mashed potatoes would be good - or even steamed, cubed pumpkins would be good. Oops, I put a bit of broccoli on the side and this was complemented by the creamy lemon flavour.
Forget the lemons-way too bitter. Suggest reduce lemons or take them out earlier.
I thought this was actually quite good- comfort food, so not jazzy, but solidly delicious. I added more thyme (dried) initially, and then added fresh at the end, so maybe that was the deciding factor. Served over whole wheat noodles- quite tasty.
