What is Fricassee?

Definition: Fricassee

Fricassee (pronounced "frihk-uh-see") is a loose term for any stew made from vegetables and sautéed meat in a dense white sauce that resembles gravy. It's commonly made with bone-in chicken pieces, although less conventional versions may contain lamb, cornish hens, or rabbit, and the sauce is often composed of flour and cream or butter.

Many versions of fricassee exist, including a Cajun variation with a darker sauce, a Greek rendition with pork and wild herbs; or a classic French dish with chicken or veal in a dense white gravy.
