Chicken Fricassee (Fricassee de Poulet a L'Ancienne)
Also see our step-by-step photo tutorial for making Chicken Fricassee. A fricassee is halfway between a saute and a stew. A true classic -- with as many variations as there are grandmothers in France -- it relies on humble ingredients and just a single pot. It's the original French comfort food: simmered chicken with hearty vegetables in a rich, silky sauce. And almost as satisfying as the dish itself is having our one-pot master recipe in your repertoire.

Cioppino (Seafood Stew)
This seafood stew, an impressive crowd-pleaser, can be prepared ahead of time and finished just 15 minutes before you serve it. If you leave out the crab legs, use an additional 8 ounces of white fish to keep the stew hearty.
