Here’s a great chicken recipe that I found a while back, that comes out super moist and has real great flavor. It’s a recipe for Chicken Fricassee with Parsley Roots and Chanterelle Mushrooms and though it sounds impressive, and there are only a few steps to follow.
It’s an easy recipe because you cook it in one dish making it really a nice simple meal. My family just ended up loving it and request it quite often. Give it a try for your family and let me know what they all think. I don’t use organic free-range chicken, but it does ask for it in the recipe. Either way will do really. Let me know how it turns out.
Here’s what you need:
1 organic free-range chicken (3 1/2 to 4 lbs.), cut into 8 pieces (leave out back and wing tips)
About 1 1/2 tsp. kosher or fine sea salt, divided
About 3/4 tsp. pepper, divided
1/2 cup plus 2 tbsp. unsalted butter
1 pound leeks, white and pale green parts only, halved lengthwise, rinsed, and thinly sliced
2 tablespoons flour
1 bottle (750 ml.) dry white wine
1/2 to 2 cups reduced-sodium chicken broth
4 parsley sprigs plus 1/4 cup coarsely chopped parsley (use tops from the roots, if tender)
1 large garlic clove, smashed
1 tablespoon sugar
1 pound parsley roots* (2 lbs. with tops) or small parsnips, stem ends and tips trimmed, roots peeled and cut into 1/2- by 2-in. pieces
12 ounces chanterelle or cremini mushrooms, stem bottoms trimmed, gently rinsed, and cut into 3/4-in.-wide pieces
3 large egg yolks
1/2 cup crème fraîche or heavy whipping cream
