My nana and papa made this everytime we visited them when I was young. There were always TONS of family there...now that I'm older..I realized the reason they made this for family gatherings is because this meal is very filling and cheap to make! All this is a basic chicken dish in roux served over rice.

We ate this in a big bowl..over rice, with pork n beans and a little jalapeño juice added in before serving. I know these extras may sound weird...but, this is how I know and love it. Feel free to leave the pork n beans out...but at least give it a try!

How to Make Chicken Fricassee

Step-by-Step

  1. Melt butter in large pan or Dutch oven...saute the celery, carrots, onions, and bullion cubes until softened.
  2. Add flour to mixture and stir until well coated and flour has been fully incorporated (this is making the lite roux). ...then,
    Add enough water to cover the bottom. Mix well.
  3. Add chicken to pan and salt and pepper. Add enough water to slightly cover the chicken. Bring to a boil, cover, reduce heat to simmer for 45 mins (turning chicken once halfway thru cooking time)

    If sauce is too thick for your likening...add more water to thin it out.
  4. Notes: I don't give salt and pepper amounts because I'm a bit of a salt aholic. Before adding the chicken to the pan..taste the sauce and adjust seasoning...but remember to salt and pepper the chicken when you add it too.
    You can also brown the chicken before sautéing the veggies if wanted.
    We eat this over rice with pork n beans and jalapeño juice mixed in at the end.
    Very easy recipe..can make a little or a ton.
