Reviews for Chicken Fricassee
"Tasty, simple and filling, a great fall/ winter dish! Scaled nicely for two, I doubled the recipe and it came out perfectly. Also quite economical, as it uses bone-in thighs, which are cheap and flavorful. I substituted chicken stock for the water and added a little extra thyme for more flavor."
