Fricassée de Poulet (Chicken Fricassee)

I recently won a Staub La Cocotte dutch oven and I wanted to try my hand at a french dish in this pot that was made in France. Seems only fitting.

I chose Fricassée de Poulet because it was easy and quick to put together. It's rich in flavor and elegant enough to serve at a dinner party

It goes well with rice. Even though I did not have any, I think wild rice would be an excellent choice for this dish. I used a yellow rice instead and it was good!

Hope you enjoy!
