We tried Old-Fashioned Chicken Fricassée from Best Ever Chicken Recipes. A fricassée is a classic dish where poultry is first seared in fat, then braised. This recipe includes white wine, chicken stock, bouquet garni, mushrooms, lemon juice, onions and is finished with a little cream. We served it with duchess potatoes and asparagus. .
Creamy chicken dishes scream for a Chardonnay and we opened a bottle of Steve’s Block Unoaked Chardonnay 2011, an Australian white from the Sunday Times Wine Club.
