A real five-start recipe, and yet so simple! I have made this both with the chicken breasts and with legs & thighs, and we prefer the latter in this kind of dish. I don't have"poultry seasoning" but some sage, savory, and rosemary gave it a wonderful flavor. And I used a bit more paprika, half Spanish smoked paprika and half Hungarian hot paprika. Served with grits and steamed green beans. Leftover sauce went on breakfast grits!
Old-Fashioned Chicken Fricassee
A classic chicken stew with chicken breasts simmering in white wine and vegetables is sure to bring comfort to your table. If you don't want ot use the wine, just add an additional 1/4 cup of chicken broth as a substitute.
