Fricassée de Poulet

ADVERTISEMENT

Fricassée is a style of cooking described as a cross between sauté and a stew. It dates back to 1300 in the Alsace-Lorraine region of France. And while chicken is the most common meat, any meat or fish — even vegetables — can be prepared this way.

This is a simple one-skillet dish served with rice or noodles. Here’s a food fun fact: Chicken Fricassée was the favorite dish of President Abraham Lincoln.

 

Ingredients:

4 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil

4 chicken breasts, with rib meat

Fine sea salt

Course, fresh ground pepper

2 fennel bulbs, thinly sliced

2 medium sweet onions, thinly sliced

28 oz. can diced Italian tomatoes

1/4 cup capers

1 cup pitted brie-cured black olives

1 cup pitted Picholine green olives

12 marinated artichoke hearts

1 cup dry white wine

 

In a large skillet, bring the oil to a medium-high heat. Liberally salt and pepper the chicken, and brown it, 5 minutes a side, turning carefully so as to not pierce or tear the skin. Once browned, remove chicken and place on a warming dish.


Reduce skillet to low and loosen chicken bits in bottom of the skillet. Add the fennel and onion and sweat, covered, until translucent, not browned.


Return chicken to skillet and add tomatoes (with juice), capers, olives, artichokes and wine (a Sauvignon Blanc works well).


Raise heat to medium-low and simmer, covered, for 30 minutes, or until chicken is done. Season to taste.


Serve with a hearty red wine, rice or noodles, and a baguette.
