Chicken fricassee with rice and fried zuchini…..copycat!

Having been inspired by our meal the other night I decided I would try and replicate the dish myself and invite a friend for dinner.

I boiled some chicken pieces in a thick stock, let them cool and then shredded them by hand. I sieved the stock of pieces and poured it into the chicken.

Then I fried mushrooms with garlic and added them – al dente – to the chicken, and added some frozen peas, dried oregano, capers, 1 1/2 lemons worth of juice,  and finally some creme fraiche (half fat!)

Boiled some rice – white and simple – and fried some zuchini in olive oil until they were well done and nice and crispy.

The fricassee LOOKED a little ‘artisinale’ and ragged …but tasted delicious,  the addition of the capers and the lemon cutting across any heaviness.

I have to say that for once the restaurant’s was marginally better than mine. I think the difference is that maybe I should have shredded the chicken with a little more care to make it LOOK nicer, but the taste of theirs was a little better too. Why? I think, the addition of fresh coriander to the end produce, which I did not have.
