Easy Chicken Fricassee Recipe

You can’t go wrong with chicken. Add a creamy, buttery sauce and you have a winner. This Chicken Fricassee recipe is simple enough to pull out on an average weekday, and yet delicious enough to feel like a weekend meal that you slaved over. It’s not exactly “low fat” but C’mon….. you gotta live a little now and then, right? Think how boring life would be without a little bit of butter & cream.


  • 8 Pieces of bone-in chicken (large thighs work great)
  • 2 tbsp Butter
  • 2 tbsp oil
  • 2 1/2 cups chicken stock
  • 12-15 small Pearl onions
  • 1/2 cup Dried mushrooms soaked in 1/4 cup boiling water
  • 1/2 cup Heavy cream


Saute chicken pieces in butter & oil. In a separate pan, simmer chicken broth, mushroom liquid, mushrooms & pearl onions while chicken is cooking. Pour over chicken, simmer for 5-10 minutes until chicken is cooked through. Remove everything from the sauce, reduce by half, add cream and pour over Chicken, onions and mushrooms.
