Rebecca's Chicken Fricassee

So I got my first Le Creuset the other day they were on sale in Williams and Sonoma I am thrilled with it, the first day I roasted a chicken not just any chicken a little Poulet Rouge. All in all it was a success but a wee bit dry maybe I cooked it too long. You know its funny I can cook elaborate dishes but when it comes to simple roasts I am stuck!

So the next day I made chicken fricassee with the left over chicken, this was one of my favorite dishes as a kid.


  • any amount of leftover roast chicken
  • 1 cup of milk
  • one tablespoon of all purpose flour
  • one tablespoon butter
  • a little Italian seasoning
  • 3 cloves of garlic
  • 1/4 of an eggplant chopped
  • 6 mushrooms chopped
  • one small yellow squash chopped
  • one small zucchini chopped
  • 1/4 green pepper chopped
  • 1/2 red onion chopped
  • a little white wine if desired
  • a handful of snap pea's

  1. heat some olive oil add the onion and garlic and saute for 3 minutes
  2. then add all the vegetables and saute for 10 minutes until cooked
  3. in a separate pan, head the butter slowly stir in the flour to make a roux then add the milk little by little stirring continuously, to make a white sauce, add some herbs
  4. then mix the sauce with the vegetables and the chicken.
We ate it with rice and steamed vegetables, would also be great with pasta.

    A clever way to use leftover roast chicken.

  7. I had some le creuset casseroles as wedding presents and it does lift your spirits when you cook with one. I haven't roasted a chicken in mine before, I usually use chicken brick for that.

    Life gets sooo much easier when little ones walk. You don't need to worry about them getting trampled on at toddler groups any more!

  19. Oh Rebecca! You reminded me of a dish I haven't had in ages! I used to love it too. Clever of you to use it with your leftovers. My favorite chicken leftover dish is tetrazini.
    Jasmine is really cute and now that she has discovered walking, you'll have to watch her every single second.

  20. Oh, how I wish to have owned a set of Le Creuset! Lucky you! Too bad, I'm on tight budget now ... Argh ...

    The chicken looks so good! I need to venture more into Western cooking, sounds so yummy!

    Congrats to you & your hubby! I could see not only that Jasmine can walk, she can run & hop happily whilst living and enjoying the shower of love her loving parents have been giving her! You guys are such warm & loving family!

    Great idea to use leftover roasted chicken !

  23. Looks tasty. I wonder if it would be good in an all veggie version.

  24. Rebecca, after cooking in Le Creuset, there is no turning back. It is the best kitchen tool for so many different dishes & recipes.

    I have a Dutch oven that I have used for the last 18 years... it is my "go-to" pan.

    My favorite leftover chicken recipe is curried chicken salad on wheat toast with a scoop of cranberry chutney.

  25. Congrats on your new toy!
    You won't need as much heat with cast iron - it will soon be your best friend.
    Yummy chicken, looks so handsome in its roasting dish.
