Fricassee of Chicken Legs with Lyonnaise Potatoes



There is a very good reason why we return again and again to the classic dishes like Fricassee of Chicken.   This tried and true recipe delivers a rich depth of flavour that has you moping up the very last of the sauce with bits of crusty bread.  White wine, chicken stock and double cream creates the magic that  enhances this often neglected part of the chicken. You can use all chicken thighs or all chicken legs if you wish. The crisp combination of onion, garlic and  potatoes  compliment this dish. The dish presents beautifully  and makes a wonderful dinner party main course.   Click on FRICASSEE OF CHICKEN LEGS  for this delicious recipe.  Bon  Appetit dear friends!
