Delicious and Quick Chicken Fricasee

Delicious and Quick Chicken Fricasee created by Karen Elizabeth

The delicious silky sauce and abundance of mushrooms makes a special weekday meal for my family. Based on a recipe by American Test Kitchen, altered to fit my family size and to cut a bit more fat. The lemon, nutmeg and egg yolk(!) add so much to this recipe. I served it with zucchini, carrots, and couscous as sides but plan to serve it with peas and a different grain next time.

ingredients

directions

  • Heat butter and oil in large skillet over medium-high heat. Season chicken with salt and pepper. Cook chicken until browned, about 4 minutes, then flip and cook until browned on second side, 4 more minutes. Transfer to large plate.
  • Cook mushrooms, onion, and wine in skillet, stirring occasionally, until liquid has evaporated and mushrooms are browned, 8 to 10 minutes. Add flour and garlic, and stir constantly for 1 minute. Add broth and bring mixture to boil, scraping bottom of pan with wooden spoon to loosen browned bits.
  • Add chicken and any accumulated juices to skillet. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer 5-10 minutes, until instant-read thermometer registers 160 degrees in breasts and 175 degrees in thighs.
  • Transfer chicken to clean platter and cover loosely with inverted pie pan.
  • Whisk sour cream and egg yolk in medium bowl. Whisking constantly, slowly stir ½ cup sauce into sour cream mixture. Stirring constantly, slowly pour sour cream mixture into simmering sauce. Stir in nutmeg, lemon juice, and tarragon; return to simmer. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
  • Pour sauce over chicken and serve.
