Chicken Fricasse or Hanchen Fricasse as its known here is a pretty popular dish. When I first heard them from my MIL, I thought what a strange name for a german dish! As it turns out, its not German. Its french and the method itself is halfway between saute and stew, but generally is white sauce base. My version here is from Jamie Oliver. As strange as it sounds, it contains cumin seed and thyme as its seasoning base. Cumin seed?! No idea how authentic that is, so I´ve vouched to go search for an authentic recipe to cook them one more time. Oh, I read up something about this dish. Apparently, this is one of Abraham Lincoln´s favourite dish.
