Easy Chicken Fricassee {#Dairyfree}

How is everyone?  All is well here in our little house - both girls are getting over icky colds which they first gave to Ron and now it is my turn but besides that we are happily plugging along.   We have been having easy dinners this week.  On Sunday we feasted on Carnitas a la girlichef (instead of verdolagas I added baby arugula), on Monday I turned it into a Carnitas Pot Pie by adding another 3 C of Salsa Verde a 1/4 of rice and topped it with my standard pie crust, on Tuesday we may have gone out, and last night it was Easy Chicken Fricassee.

Talk about easy…yes, this dish is so easy, quick and super tasty.  Chicken in a white wine sauce that is dotted with peas as well as capers.  

The recipe is also super versatile - we prefer dark meat over white meat and either works.  Serve it over rice, ton top of egg noodles, with couscous or what ever your favorite grain maybe.  My preferred side for this dish is rice, but now I must confess.  Making rice is often a little challenging for me…most times it works out but other times?!  Oh my…well let me just say that I was glad we had some papperdelle left in the pantry…

Easy Chicken Fricassee
  • 1-1/2 lb skinless boneless chicken {we prefer dark meat}, cubed
  • 1 Tb Olive Oil
  • 1 small onion diced
  • 1 tsp poultry seasoning blend w/o salt
  • 1 Tbs flour
  • 3/4 C dry white wine
  • 3/4 C plain Almond milk
  • 3 Tbs capers (less or more)
  • 1 C frozen peas
  • Salt & Pepper to taste
  1. heat olive oil in a large pot
  2. add onions with a pinch of salt and saute until onions begin to soften
  3. add chicken together with seasoning and sauté until all sides of the chicken are cooked
  4. dust flour over the chicken/onion mixture and stir it in.  After a couple of minutes
  5. add white wine by stirring it into the mixture.  Stir carefully to get rids of any flour lumps that may remain; bring it to a quick rolling boil for sauce to slightly thicken.  
  6. add almond milk together with capers. Reduce heat, and bring it to a very slow simmer (you do not want it to boil)  cover.  Cook for another 20 minutes or so
  7. Add frozen peas and simmer for another 5-10 minutes
  8. Add salt and pepper to taste
