On mediun low add the chicken and brown. Add tomato sauce or diced tomatoes, cooking white wine and simmer until most of the liquid is absorbed. Original recipe calls for diced potatoes in the Fricasee but I have eliminated to cut down on the carbs. Serve with brown rice and a salad.

  • Just what I was looking for! I had 2 different versions from my Cuban mother-in-law and needed to bring them both together. I did add one diced potato to stretch it because I only had 2 chicken breasts defrosted. My husband loved it! - 9/22/09

  • I grew up on this and it's my favorite dish. We use grape juice in lieu of the wine (I don't drink so I don't have wine at home). I do use diced potatoes. Remember portion control :) - 1/6/08
