REVIEW: recipe rating
This is pretty close to the real Chicken Fricasse recipe. But what will give the distinct fricasse flavor is the bay leaves and the wine. Also, add 3 garlic cloves (what is a tropical dish without garlic?!) Add 3 bay leaves and 1/4 cup of red wine. You will have a supperb sauce that will combine perfectly with the white rice.... Enjoy!
