Recipes From Today’s Show: Chicken Fricassee

Published by

TODAY  on MHTV: Chicken fricassee is classically made with a cream-based sauce but today I’m making a rustic, Jamaican variation. In this recipe, the chicken is fried then simmered in a pot with fiery Scotch bonnet peppers, onions and tomatoes. I like to serve it over rice to soak up the extra juice and with a side of healthy sauteed greens, like spinach and cabbage. More from the show.

    So glad Mad Hungry will continue! Because if the ads for Martha’s Baking Show I was afraid your show was being replaced…So relieved to hear you will be back in February…Your show is the best! So many great recipes so well explained and demonstrated. Thanks, Lucinda!

    While I am home recuperating from the flu, I have become a Mad Hungry fan! I am setting up my DVR so I do not miss an episode when I return to work.
    I love the show’s format, and also enjoy your lovely family being incorporated in. Great, simple recipes that I am sharing with friends. I have been watching you on PBS and Martha shows for many years. Good luck!

    I love watching the show. You’re so down to earth and I simply love the recipes. I cook for 1-2 people only and most of your recipes are easy to cut down. Thanks so much.

    I saw this meal on your show the day before yet another huge snow storm was predicted. The marinade smelled so fresh. The chicken was amazing, the house smelled incredible. The cabbage and spinach side dish was great. Thanks for your fresh ideas.

    I love your show, your cooking, your family….you make me want to try every recipe. Thanks for the simple yet wonderful recipes you give to us.

    I just saw your show for the first time yesterday morning and early noon! I loved it! In my home we have some food allergies and sensitivities to tend to and the recipes I have looked at totally work for eaters of all types. And, are easy to adapt when a little allergy comes up. Thank you!

    I just made some kale using the advise you gave on the mixed greens. Delicious.

    I am so thankful for your recipes and your explanations of the “how to’s” in the kitchen. Looking forward to seeing the show again!

    so glad that you make everything from scratch. The additives in many of the prepared products make my knuckles hurt and swell((at first I thought I was getting arthritis in my hands)) since, I too, try to cook from scratch, if my hands start to hurt, I go “hmmm, what have I used differently?…the last was a different brand of coffee, maybe it was how it was processed or some preservative they put in it. Another bad one for me is Fiber One cereal (my hands start to hurt within an hour of eating a bowl)….keep those great recipes coming girl!!!
