This is a recipe from “New Concise Larousse Gastronomique”, very useful book if you are into cooking. In France, the term denoted various kinds of ragout of chicken meat, fish or vegetables in white or brown stock. Nowadays, the meat is cut into pieces, an aromatic garnish is added and it is then sautéed over a low heat, without browning. The meat is then coated with flour, some white stock is added and the meat is cooked in the thickened liquid. A fricassee is usually cooked with cream and garnished with small glazed onions and lightly cooked mushrooms. I cooked this today and I liked it, so I decided to share it with Zaar. I am writing this part after I have tried the meal: This is original recipe I have submitted, but, replace vinegar with lemon juice, it is much better. Otherwise it is really, really good!!
