Fricassée de Poulet
French meat dish that is slowly stewed in a cream sauce. Fricasée de Poulet is delicious with French farmers bread and homemade salted butter. Nice to know: Fricassee is a cooking technique that is mostly indicated as a French stew. While preparing the stew, one adds the sauce from the beginning, while with fricassee the sliced meat is roasted shortly before stewing the meat in a (usually) white cream sauce. Chicken is mostly used for fricassee, but nearly all sorts of meat, poultry, fish and even vegetables can be used. Have fun!
