hmmm... why are so many people in the us using corn starch??? Melanie - from the home of the "Hühnerfrikassee" - Germany ( we never use corn starch, but everybody can do it his own way. In the "original" recipe Hühnerfrikassee is also white asparagus and peas)

People in the U.S. use cornstarch, arrowroot, potato starch, sago, tapioca, guar gum, xanthan gum, eggs, and gelatin as thickeners. To name a few off the top of my head.

I made this tonight (again because it's my favorite) I served this with rotelle pasta and I mixed the pasta with heinz gravy, a little sour cream and some dill, Then I threw the chicken fricassee with the gravy that it makes. It was sooo good my husband was raving about it. I use cornstarch to thicken my sauces. I like a thick creamy gravy not watery gravy.

I looked up Hühnerfrikassee and this sounds very good too. I may try this one. I am 1/4 German by the way. What part of Germany are you from???

I am living 20 minutes from Frankfurt am Main ( Center Germany), let me try to translate the "original" recipe:

Hühnerfrikassee

Boil a whole chicken in enough water and a little amount of chicken broth for about 1,5 to 2 hours! Let it cool down a bit, remove the skin ( not needed) and cut the chicken meat into pieces. Keep some chicken water ( the chicken broth) for the sauce ( about 20 oz?) - sorry, i do only know Liters :-)

Put 2 tablespoons of regular butter and 2 tablespoons of flour in a pan and let it melt, stir nonstop to avoid clot (?), deglaze with the chicken broth.

Mix 1 egg yolk with 1 can (or cup) cream, stir, add to pan, stir nonstop and don`t let it cook again!!!!

Cut champignons into quaters ( when they`re big), divide (?) WHITE asparagus in smaller pieces ( asparagus from a glass or can, if fresh, boil it first) add to pan, add also the chicken cubes.

also add some capers. if you want, you can add some young peas too

season with salt, pepper, lime juice and if you want, a little amount of white wine. ( or cognac).

no unhealthy corn starch needed. Trust me... europeans never use this stuff :-) a little flour is everything needed.

to garnish(?) some chopped parsley
