  • 1
    Rub chicken thighs with salt and pepper. In 5-quart Dutch oven, melt 2 tablespoons of the butter over medium-high heat. Cook chicken in butter 2 to 4 minutes on each side or until browned; transfer to plate.
  • 2
    Melt remaining 1 tablespoon butter in Dutch oven. Cook onions, carrot and celery in butter 4 to 6 minutes, stirring frequently, until vegetables are softened. Add mushrooms; cook 8 to 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until mushrooms brown.

    Stir in flour; cook 30 seconds to 1 minute or until flour coats vegetables and smells nutty. Stir in wine; simmer 1 to 2 minutes, stirring constantly, until thickened. Add broth and chicken. Heat to boiling. Reduce heat to medium-low; simmer 12 to 15 minutes or until juice of chicken is clear when thickest part is cut (at least 165°F) and sauce thickens. Stir in whipping cream, lemon juice and fresh herbs.

Expert Tips

  • Use the onions, carrot and celery to “mop up” the delicious browned bits from the bottom of the pan.

More About This Recipe
  • Fricassee is a term used to describe the technique of cooking cut-up meat through sauteeing and braising. According to American chef Julia Child, fricassee is a hybrid between a sauté and a stew. Chicken fricassee is usually served with a creamy white wine sauce. You can use sour cream, whipping cream or even Greek yogurt to make the sauce creamy, but it’s the wine that really gives it its flavor. We recommend a dry white wine like Sauvignon Blanc. Speaking of recommendations, rumor has it that chicken fricassee was one of Abraham Lincoln’s favorite dishes! You’ll notice that we used chicken thighs in this recipe. Skip the temptation to use chicken breasts, thighs have a higher fat content which translates into tender and moist meat. We’ll tell you all about it in our How to Cook Chicken article.
