Chicken Fricassee

 3 lbs chicken thighs with bone and skin on
 4 tbsp olive oil
 ¼ tsp salt
 ¼ tsp pepper
 8 oz button mushrooms
 1 red bell peppers, diced
 2 tbsp all-purpose flour
 1 cup white wine dry
 3 cups chicken broth low sodium
 1 tsp lemon juice
 1 tsp sugar
 2 large egg yolks
 6 tbsp heavy cream
 2 tbsp parsley fresh, chopped
 2 tbsp butter unsalted

Prepare the chicken by patting dry with paper towel. Season with salt and pepper.


In a large skillet, add the oil to sear the chicken on both sides over medium high heat. Remove the chicken and transfer to plate.



Reduce the heat and sauté the peppers and mushrooms for 5 minutes. Add the flour and continue to cook for another minute, while stirring. Add wine, broth, lemon juice, sugar and stir. To make the sauce thicker, whisk the egg yolks with the cream and add to the sauce along with 2 tbsp of butter.


Add the chicken back into the skillet. Cover and simmer for 25-30 minutes until the chicken is cooked through. Garnish with parsley and serve.



May be served over rice or mashed potatoes.
