REVIEW: 5 star recipe rating
I grew up with my grandmother making chicken fricassee quite frequently. It's one of those simple dishes that just really are good but not fancy. This is a good classic version that makes life easier by using the crock pot, which in todays hectic world is often a necessity. The recipe doesn't really take any shortcuts so you get an authentic flavor and texture. I enjoyed this recipe a lot and the trip down memory lane.

Simple- comfort food, not fancy but very tasty and satisfying. I used some chicken thighs that were on sale, and I added parsely from my garden in the first steps with the bay leaf as well as several grindings of black pepper; probably used more paprika than the rceipe called for, as I dredged the thighs on a plate with sea salt and paprika measured by instinct; also added a splash of white wine in the last step with the flour/water. I want to add that I took the skin off of the el-cheapo thighs (saved for stock). One of the things I appreciate about this recipe is that it did Not use Canned Mushroom Soup...Yuck! I like to cook exclusively from scratch. I served with mashed potatoes instead of noodles, which was wonderful. I'll bet dumplings would be perfect with this, so I may try that next time. I would bet that plain water could be substituted for chicken stock since the chicken cooks long enough to create a full flavor.
