Super easy chicken fricassee for big and small!

I really like cooking - but I have trouble finding inspiration on a daily basis.   I want my crew to have a varied and healthy diet, but other priorities often get in the way.  My solution - which is probably not that different from your own - is to have a few "staple" meals - simple dishes that I can fall back on in an emergency when I frankly have no clue what I should put in the feedbags.  

The staples have to be easy to shop for and use a maximum of two pots.  If you're about to pick up the phone and order a pizza (we all do it from time to time), take a breath, put down your phone and read on....

 

Here's how to make a super easy chicken fricassee for big and small

If you are serving this to a baby or a toddler, hold the salt until you have removed their portion! With rice, this recipe serves 4.  

This is what you need:

2 red oninons

2 leeks

2 redpeppers

3-4 chicken breasts

1 can of corn 

1 Liter of water ++

1 1/2 tbs of flour 

Chop the red onions into quarters and bring to a hard boil and let boil for 20-30 min.

Chop the rest of veggies and the chicken into cubes while the onion is boiling.

Take a little glass jar with a lidd, add the flour and some water and shake well to mix. set aside. Then remove the onion from the water (the onion should now have left all of its flavour in the water.)

Then just throw all your ingredisents into the onion water - the water should just cover your ingredients, or add a little more water if needed. 

Bring to a boil and then add the well shaken flour and water mix this will thicken the broth just a little - just add more in the same manner if you prefer it thicker.  

Boil for 30 minutes.  - serve with rice!  You may want to season or salt to flavour!

-For the baby remove a portion and run through the food proccesor. I take one adult portion, baby A eats abt. 2 tbs spoons , the rest of the mush i freeze in icecube trays. for later.

 I am always on the lookout for new "staple ideas" so please leave a link to one of yours in the comments section or send me a note if you have a good one!
