Chicken Fricassee is simply described as a French stew usually with a white sauce. Doesn’t that sound absolutely delicious? White sauce with mushroom and chicken seem to be loved by all.

The word Fricassee originally related to the method of cooking where the meat is cut and braised and served with a sauce, this sauce is usually a white sauce.
