How To Make Chicken & Cider Fricassée with Parsley Croûtes

Preparation: 15 minutes
Cooking: 45 minutes
Total: 60 minutes



  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • Salt and pepper to season
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1 cup apple cider
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 1 tablespoon dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon flour
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
  • 4 slices of crusty bread
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted


  1. Season the chicken breasts with salt and pepper on both sides.

  2. Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the chicken breasts and cook until browned on both sides. Remove from the skillet and set aside.

  3. In the same skillet, add the diced onion and minced garlic. Cook until onions are translucent.

  4. Add the apple cider to the skillet and bring to a simmer. Cook for 5 minutes to reduce slightly.

  5. Stir in the chicken broth, dijon mustard, and flour. Cook for another 5 minutes until the sauce has thickened.

  6. Add the chicken breasts back into the skillet and simmer for an additional 10-15 minutes, until chicken is cooked through.

  7. While the chicken is simmering, preheat the oven to 375°F (190°C). Place the slices of bread on a baking sheet and brush with melted butter. Sprinkle with chopped parsley and bake for 8-10 minutes, or until the bread is toasted and crispy.

  8. Serve the chicken fricassée with a spoonful of sauce, topped with a parsley croûte.
